How do I verify an iCloud account?

CodeNorth asked this question and added the following information:

When I try to access iCloud from settings on my iPhone it says I need to verify the email. But when I go on the computer to sign in to iCloud to verify the email it says on there verify the email to access the account. I need to verify to access, but I can't access to verify. Thanks for any help.

My answer

Signing into iCloud on the computer is not part of the verification process, which requires manual steps to take after the reception of an email from Apple.

So, first, please verify the inbox of the email account associated with your Apple ID.

If you didn’t receive any verification email, please check the following article on Apple’s Web site: https://support.apple.com/en-us/...

Yes, really, it's totally free and we can talk via FaceTime or Skype.
