The article says that they broke in to his iCloud and then got him to divulge the 2fa.
I hope the author of the article is just smoking a little crack today, and that it’s just a word sequence problem, because the statement is extremely misleading. A tech writer on AppleInsider surely knows that there was no break-in, which is why they needed the 2fa, because they just initiated an iForgot on his Apple ID, and then called him.
At no time was iCloud broken into, or hacked, or compromised itself. They tricked the guy into giving them
access to his account.
Read the tweets. How is this so confusing for so many of you? Pressing the button clearly isn’t going to do Anything. What on earth do you guys have for breakfast? Some of you are holding you fingers in the air over the button like on any planet in the universe it would matter at all.The notification is being delivered because Disney is raising their rates and Apple requires it be disclosed to users in advance. The message includes a link if you want to cancel, which you can always do from your Apple Account settings under Subscriptions, as has been done for over a decade now, but just in case, under all the details about the price change including the date it comes into effect, there is a link explaining, in case that’s also somehow a mystery, that you can cancel and where to go.
If you’re holding out on pressing the button, wake the F up and see a brain doctor. Nearly everyone in that Twitter thread needs help.
And as for the title of the article, this is a test in what way? This is normal behavior. You have a subscription, the vendor is raising the price, here’s the details. What exactly are you expecting Opt-In to look like? You can say “I Decline” and your rates stay the same? That’s absurd. You have an active subscription, the response to a change of terms would be an Opt-Out, and that’s what the notification is doing. You can’t just pay what you feel like paying, and Apple would have no business cancelling your subscription without asking first in order to give you some weird mirage of having an Opt-In.
