How to Unlock a disabled iPhone without iTunes using iCloud
This is one of the popular methods used to unlock iPhone passcodes.
ICloud will enable you to unlock a disabled iPhone without iTunes.
It is my most recommended method to unlock your iPhone without the passcode given its reliability, remoteness and accessibility.
You don’t have to be a tech guru to unlock your iPhone passcode using the iCloud.
Simply follow these steps to unlock your iPhone without the password.
Step 1: Login to your iCloud Account
Just access your iCloud account using any web browser such as Mozilla Firefox. You will be prompted to enter your account details such as the Apple ID and password.
Make sure you use the Apple ID you normally use with iCloud and not your iPhone passcode that you have forgotten.
Step 2: Locate your iPhone
Once logged in, go to “Find My Phone” option, click on Devices and then select your phone.
This is where you can always locate, lock or reset your iPhone depending on the circumstances.
Now click on the erase iPhone button in order for you to reset your iPhone password using iCloud.
It is always advisable to use unique and easy to remember passwords for your devices such that you don’t encounter challenges of this nature.
However, keep in mind that your personal data might be at risk should you choose very easy to crack passwords.
Just make it simple for you to remember but not easy for anyone to guess. Avoid using your date of birth or your names as passwords since these are very easy for anyone to guess.
This is all you have to do to unlock your iPhone without the passcodes.
How to unlock iPhone without Password using iTunes
Normally when you enter an incorrect password into your iPhone numerous times, the “iPhone is disabled connect to iTunes” text appears on your phone’s screen.
This should be no cause for alarm.
I don’t usually encourage people to opt for this method to unlock their iPhones simply because this method will only work best if you had previously synced your iPhone with a Mac or Windows Personal Computer (PC).
If you hadn’t synced your phone with a Mac or Windows PC I recommend you stick to unlocking your IPhone using iCloud.
So to unlock your disabled iPhone using iTunes simply follow these easy steps.
Step 1: Connect the iPhone to a Computer
You can connect your phone to a computer using a USB cable.
The 30 pin cable can also help you achieve this.
Then head over to your computer and open iTunes.
Once you have opened iTunes on your computer, select your iPhone (the one you want to reset) from the devices list.
This will allow your iPhone sync and backup automatically.
If for one reason or another ITunes doesn’t automatically sync with your iPhone you can do so manually.
Also make sure you confirm that the backup was successful before proceeding forward.
You can also click on the “Check for Update” button to install any new iPhone software updates available so you can be up to date.
iTunes will inform you if there is any new iPhone update.
Usually if you have forgotten the passcode on your iPhone, you will have to restore the device.
What restoring does is delete all your personal information such as songs, videos, pictures, apps among others.
So the reason you have to connect your iPhone to your computer which you previously synchronized with iTunes is basically to enable you to make backups of recent additions to your iPhone by connecting it to the very same computer you have used before without having to enter the passcode.
So in a nutshell, before iTunes restores your iPhone, it will back up the iPhone thus your files will be restored after the device restarts.
Step 2: Activate Recovery Mode in your iPhone
Each model of iPhone will have a different set of instructions on how to put your phone to recovery mode.
For the purposes of this tutorial I will be looking at how you can activate recovery mode in iPhone 8, 8plus, X and all newer models as well as series.
To activate recovery mode in your iPhone simply connect your iPhone to your computer using a USB and then open iTunes.
The press and release the Volume Up button, press and release the Volume Down button, press and hold the power button until the iPhone shows the recovery mode screen.
The iPhone will show a popup message, “iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode” on your Computer screen.
However many of my friends have reported difficulty when trying to activate the recovery mode in iPhone.
So if you encounter difficulty in activating recovery mode in iPhone, you can opt to activate the DFU mode.
To activate DFU mode in iPhone, simply connect your iPhone to your computer and then open iTunes.
Once your iPhone is connected to the Computer, press and hold the Volume Down and Power buttons for a minimum duration of ten minutes, then release the power button only.
Do not release the Volume Down button.
If done correctly, you should see a popup message indicating that iTunes has detected an iPhone on DFU mode.
Now go ahead and release the Volume down button. And your iPhones screen will turn black.
Step 3: Restore your iPhone
This is the last step when unlocking iPhone without passcode with iTunes.
Simply click the “Restore button” and then follow the onscreen instructions to restore the device.
It is however recommended that you backup the iPhone data a second time when prompted during the restoring process.
That’s how to unlock iPhone without password. It’s that simple.
