Having a ‘mare updating my iCloud credit card

Am I just going mad, or is this a total fail on Apple’s part?

This morning I received this friendly email reminder that my iCloud credit card had expired:

iCloud Email from Apple

Thanks Apple. That looks easy enough?


Upon following the 3-step instructions on your iPhone, you get to a screen showing your payment method, where you cannot do anything. Clicking, dragging, shouting does not bring up a way of editing this card.

So, back to the email. Apple says, “You can also update payment information from a Mac or PC.”

This link takes you to a useless iCloud landing page with no indication of how to update such information.

Goodo. Back to the email, locate the “Support” link. Click.

After locating one’s country in a list of 100, finally there’s hope – the search results show what I am looking for:

Clicked on it:

We're Sorry

    So did you figure it out? I’m still stuck at the face-palm stage. On Christmas morning, no less. Merry Xmas to you, too, Apple. This should have taken all of about 90 seconds. Instead I’m searching Google for a solution. And I need all the iCloud backup info to get an expected new iPad working.
