How to Fix a Forgotten Passcode for iPhone/iPad iOS8 or 7

Last updated on

If you forget your iOS passcode and try typing it incorrectly too many times you will be locked out for 30 minutes. If you don’t actually know the passcode then you can be locked out indefinitely!

Oh dear.

Luckily there’s an easy fix for most devices. The one we’re looking at in this particular video is for iOS8 or 7 and is a particularly easy strategy. Note that you might need to enter a password still to use iCloud. The moral of the story? Keep your passwords safe!

Hafsa Mika says:

ITunes says can’t connect because it needs a passcode but it’s disabled so
obv I can’t enter my pass! Also the software is updating twice I.e there
are two simultaneous downloads, both the same. I think because the first
time I did it iTunes didn’t open up so I did everything again. So I stopped
one of them is that okay?!

iPad Model A1454
On the iPad Model A1454 remove the resistor r1204 and make jumper on place
of r1205. On the Model A1455 (MM) delete resistors r1204, r1205 and make
jumper on place of r1205.
iPad will enter DFU mode.
Connect the tablet to your PC or Mac.
After that you need to restore the tablet through iTunes with firmware of
Wi-Fi model and activate using the official method.

This worked great! thank you for the info — apparently the cover on my
