The verbiage varies slightly depending on the iOS release.

This tutorial will show you who to prevent the "Verification Required" message on iOS, both when downloading free apps or program updates on an iPhone or iPad.

Why do I see a "Verification Required" message in the App Store to get iOS?

It turns out the "Verification Required" material on iOS is due to the payment method used on the Apple ID associated with this device. Accordingly, you will see that Verification Required billing message if the payment system neglected, if there is an outstanding balance on the account, or if the device has never bought or downloaded whatever or any free app before, or in the event, the payment procedure hasn't yet been updated as needed. Thus, to prevent the Verification Required message, in iOS, you will want to modify the payment process, either to a legal payment system to 'not one' that allows no payment to relate to an Apple ID and App Store. Here we shall detail the exact measures to accomplish this endeavour.

Prior to beginning: note that if you just add a legitimate credit card to an Apple ID, the "Verification Required" message won't appear at all, and you're able to prevent verification for updates and installs if you disable "Require Password" for free downloads to your iPhone or even iPad App Store configurations.

The Way to Fix "Verification Required" When Installing Free Apps on iPhone and iPad

In case you don't want to include or verify a credit card with the Apple ID, or in the event, the payment method expired, or else you do not want to use one at all, then you must change a setting on your Apple ID to discontinue the "Verification Required" message. Here's how to do this:

  1. Open the "Settings" app on the iPhone or iPad
  2. Pick "iTunes & App Store" configurations, then tap the "Apple ID:" button near the top of the settings
  3. Tap on "View Apple ID" and sign in to the Apple ID as normal
  4. Under 'Payment Method', choose "None" -- or, rather, update the payment procedure *
  5. Tap on "Done" when finished fixing your preferences
  6. Exit Settings, and return to the App Store of iOS where you can freely download, install, and upgrade apps without visiting any "Verification Required" message

This should completely resolve that the "Verification Required" message if performing App Store actions in iOS while updating programs, downloading new program installing or installing any programs, onto an iPhone or even iPad.

* Whether or not you decide to update payment information associated with an Apple ID is completely your decision. If you are using the App Store with no credit card then you would want to choose the "None" option, that allows downloading and updating free programs without needing any kind of verification of payment or even a payment system whatsoever. Or if the payment method has died, you can choose "None" too and skip the 'Verification Required' message that way as well and then afterward return and upgrade the payment if need be. Remember if you have an outstanding balance on the Apple ID to get a buy, subscription, etc, you must pay that balance before you're able to decide on the "None" option or until you can stop the Verification Required billing message.

Separately however related, in the event that you also don't need to authenticate with an Apple ID password on every instance of installing and downloading iOS apps on the iPhone or iPad, you can disable password demands for free downloads from App Store from iOS (also for Mac users, there's a similar setting to allow free downloads without passwords for Mac App Store also).
