Forgot iPhone Passcode - How to unlock my iPhone?

If you unfortunately forgot your iPhone passcode, don't worry. Here we will show you 4 ways to bypass the passcode lock.

If you've synced your iPhone or iPad with iTunes before, and "Find My iPhone" is not enabled on your iPhone, then you're lucky, because this will be the fastest way to get your device back up and running.

Requirements:
Find My iPhone is turned off on your iPhone.
You've synced your iPhone or iPad with iTunes before.

Pros:
You iPhone will be restored to the last backup without losing any content.

Steps:
1. Connect your iPhone or iPad to computer with USB cable.

2. Run iTunes and select "Back up now" to create a backup of your device.

3. Select "Restore iPhone".

4. Select "Restore from iTunes Backup" from the Settings menu.

5. Find your most recent backup and choose it. Your iPhone or iPad will use this data for recovery. 

6. After the recovery is completed, you can activate it step by step, just like the new machine.

2. Use "Find My iPhone" to restore your device

If you have previously enabled "Find My iPhone" on your iPhone or iPad, you can erase your device in a faster way. Just follow the instructions below to use the "Find My iPhone" remote removal device. And, if your device is lost or stolen, it can also quickly restore your iPhone or iPad without the help of a computer. Once the device is restored, simply follow the setup process and recover from the previous iCloud backup (if available). 

Cons: All your content and settings will be erased.

Requirements:
You must have "Find My iPhone" enabled on your iPhone.
The device must have Wi-Fi or cellular connectivity

Steps:

1. In Find My iPhone on iCloud.com, click All Devices, then select the device you want to erase.

If you don’t see All Devices, it’s because you’ve already selected a device. Click the name of the current device in the center of the toolbar to access the Devices list, then select a new device.

2. Click Erase [device].

You can also use the Find My (or Find My iPhone) app on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac to erase your missing device.

3. Enter recovery mode and erase everything

If you have never synced your iPhone or iPad with your computer before, or if you have "Find My iPhone" enabled, this trick is for you - Enter recovery mode, erase all information on the device, and update the latest software version at the same time. The password will also be deleted during this process. 

Steps:

1. Make sure that your device isn't connected to your computer, then choose your device below and follow the steps:

2. Locate your device on your computer. When you see the option to Restore or Update, choose Restore. Finder or iTunes will download software for your device. If it takes more than 15 minutes, your device will exit recovery mode and you'll need to repeat steps 1-3.

3. Wait for the process to finish. Then you can set up and use your device.
