If you lost your Recovery Key
As long as you remember your Apple ID password and still have access to one of
your trusted devices, you can sign in and create a new Recovery Key.
Go to your Apple ID account page <https://appleid.apple.com/account/home>.
Sign in with your password and trusted device.
In the Security section, click Edit > Replace Lost Key.
Keep your new Recovery Key in a safe place. Your old Recovery Key won't work
anymore and you can't use it to reset your password or access your account.
