At first glance, it seems strange when you hear that people are looking for how to unlock the iPad if they forget the password, but anything happens in life.
Surely those people who care about the confidentiality of the contents of their tablet often change their password.
When the imagination runs out to generate new combinations, you have to use completely chaotic and meaningless passwords, which often leads to their forgetting.
Guide to action
If this still happened, and the person forgot the password for his tablet, then the first thing to unlock it is to try to remember this invented code.
But if this does not help and the person forgot the password completely and irrevocably, then it will be advisable to use a hint on how to unlock the tablet.
Firstly, the number of consecutive attempts to enter the wrong password in the iPad is limited to five attempts.
And, therefore, if attempts to enter the correct password are completed, the tablet will be blocked and a message will appear on its screen that the device is turned off.
It looks something like the picture.
In this situation, to unlock the tablet, you must delete information from it. This can be done in the following ways:
- Using the iTunes app
- Using the Find iPhone feature
- going into recovery mode.
It is also advisable to make backups from time to time, storing data that is stored on the tablet.
Backup is necessary for those who store valuable information on their gadget.
Since even if the tablet is lost, recovering data will not be difficult.
It is convenient to create backup copies with the help of aityuns or icloud programs.
The first of them stores all the information completely, and this process can take a long time.
The second one creates backups only using wi-fi and its speed depends on the speed of the Internet.
over, it is impossible to use these programs at the same time, since they deactivate each other.
How to unlock iPad using iTunes
If the tablet has been synchronized with IT, you can unlock it by doing a few simple operations:
- Connect the iPad to the personal computer with which you want to synchronize.
- If you have already synchronized with this computer and created backup copies, then when you start IT synchronization, it will be synchronized again, even when the portable device is turned off.
It will look like in the picture.
- Before restoring the tablet, you must disable the encryption of the previously created backup.
- After the backup is completed, it is recommended to switch to the "Restore from backup" function, then it is recommended to select the latest copy in the device’s memory in order to unlock the iPad.
Do not forget that you can configure the tablet so that the next time you enter the password ten times incorrectly erase the data and restore the device.
How to restore the iPad using the Find iPhone feature
In this case, you need to go to icloud.com/#find on the search page to make sure that the Find iPhone feature is enabled on the tablet.
Then, in the browser window that opens, you need to call up a list of all devices and, having selected your iPad, click on the "Delete" button to delete the previously set password and unlock the device.
Using the settings assistant on the iPad, you can easily restore erased data from the last backup, as shown in the figure.
How to use recovery mode on iPad
If it is impossible to apply the two previous methods, you must perform the following steps:
- Disconnect all cables from the tablet and turn it off.
- While holding the Home button, connect the iPad to the iTunes and turn on the device.
- When the ITunes program notifies that the device is in recovery mode, click OK.
If backups have never been created on a locked device, then when you restore it, all data, programs and applications will be lost.
Tips to Avoid Following
Often, you can read tips on unlocking iPads on online forums, but most of them are not effective for models that have the latest versions of the iOS operating system.
So, for example:
- using an emergency call;
- delete a file with a password;
- remote password change.
All of these methods can be completely meaningless and ineffective, in contrast to synchronizing a device using Aikloud or Aityuns.
It is important to understand that unlocking and restoring the work of the iPad is not a serious problem both if you forgot your password and when you never knew it (this concerns hackers).
This means that no matter how complex the password may be, the device can still be turned on bypassing the security system.
Therefore, it is better to use simple passwords that are easy to remember, and not create inconvenience for yourself by inventing complex combinations, which are also often forgotten, but do not bring a significant effect.
