Thank you for using two-step verification to protect the security of 
your Apple ID.

If you install the iOS 11 or macOS High Sierra public betas this summer 
and meet the basic requirements, your Apple ID (xxxxxx) will be 
automatically updated to use two-factor authentication. This is our most 
advanced, easy-to-use account security, and it’s required to use some 
of the latest features of iOS, macOS, and iCloud.

Once updated, you’ll get the same extra layer of security you enjoy 
with two-step verification today, but with an even better user 
experience. Verification codes will be displayed on your trusted devices 
automatically whenever you sign in, and you will no longer need to keep 
a printed recovery key to make sure you can reset a forgotten password.

For more information, read Two-Factor Authentication for Apple ID. If 
you have additional questions, visit Apple Support.
