My iPhone keeps forgetting my iCloud password. Every so often the message pops up saying iCloud username or password are incorrect. I go to settings and re-enter my password and all is good for a few days. Then it happens again. My iPad does not do this. Any idea?

This happens to me, happens to my wife. It's not limited to my iPhone, but also happens on iPad and my Mac. Not sure why exactly it does it, but it's terribly annoying. I have a theory that perhaps too many devices are ping iCloud, causing it to push one offline. The prompt of an incorrect password is off base and confusing.

Apple had some issues with iCloud passwords and App Store passwords. If they were the same it could wreak havoc.
