Use contacts to recover iCloud account
First, you need to prepare the contacts you use to restore the account, by following these steps:
All of your Apple devices must be using the latest version of their systems in addition to being registered with the same iCloud account.
Then go to the Settings app on your phone, and then tap on your iCloud account bar.
After that, head over to the Passwords and Security settings.
And then click on restore account, and then add contacts to restore the account.
The device then asks you to confirm your identity by unlocking it using your fingerprint or face print, and then choose the contacts you want to restore through and press Add.
The device sends a message to the user you selected that you would like to be the backup contact to restore your account.
The user must go to the link that he accesses in the message for confirmation, and then you can use the recovery of your account via this contact directly.
