If there’s no trusted iOS device that you have nearby, you can still reset your password. To do so, you’ll need to request an Account Recovery. This is mostly recommended when your device has been stolen or lost, and you need to access your account that was active in the device that you have lost. However, this process could take some days depending on the quality and quantity of the information you provided to prove your identity. Account Recovery may not be known as the fastest way to reset your password, but it is an effective one for doing the same from an Apple device.
Account recovery is a process that has been designed to get you back into your Apple ID account when you are deprived of enough information to reset your password. For security purposes, it might take several days or more than your expectation before you can use your account again.
