How to Unlock Your iPhone Without a Passcode

Have you ever found yourself in an embarrassing situation where your iPhone was locked, but you didn’t have the passcode to unlock it? Whether you have your phone locked due to one too many attempts at entering the wrong passcode or you’ve lost your iPhone and don’t know the passcode, there are ways to get around this obstacle. Here are four different ways to unlock your iPhone without using the passcode.

Before you start

If you’re getting an error message when you try to bypass your passcode and open up your phone, that means you’ve enabled Erase Data on your iPhone. Once you set up Erase Data, iOS renders your device completely unusable if someone enters an incorrect passcode 10 times in a row. To fix things, start off by resetting all settings—there’s no harm in trying!

Open iTunes on your computer

Connect your device via a USB cable and then open iTunes. On iOS 11 or later, go to Settings > Face ID & Passcode. On earlier versions of iOS, tap on General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. This will erase everything from your device but make sure you’ve backed up your files first. Then, click Restore on iTunes and choose your backup file for the restore operation to complete.

Connect your phone to your computer

To access your phone through iTunes, you’ll need to connect it to your computer. If you haven’t already connected your phone, plug in its USB cable and click Trust This Computer when prompted. You may also have to enter an administrator password. After that, iTunes will launch and you should see both your device and its contents on-screen.

Restore your phone

Before you can get around passcode security, you’ll need to restore your phone to factory settings. Be sure to back up your data before doing so—if you don’t already have iCloud or iTunes backups set up, now is as good a time as any. Once that’s done, go into Settings > General > Reset and tap Erase All Content and Settings; after that, select Restore from iTunes Backup or Set Up as New iPhone.

Update software

In order to gain access to your device, you’ll need to have iOS 7 or higher. If you do not have iOS 7, connect your device to iTunes and follow these steps: Sync your device with iTunes. Back up your data by pressing on Back Up Now while on iTunes.

Change iCloud account

If you’re using an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and have forgotten your Apple ID password, or simply want to start using iCloud with a new Apple ID, here’s how you can reset it without needing your passcode. Changing your iCloud account will let you log into all of your other Apple services with that same account—like iTunes and App Store—and keep everything synced between devices. It also lets you continue backing up any of your content in iCloud Drive.

Restore from backup

If you’ve enabled iCloud or iTunes backups for your device, you can restore from that backup instead of resetting your phone. Follow these steps to restore from an iCloud backup
