A veteran journalist, dedicated to reporting the latest smartphone technology innovations. He tests all methods himself to provide an unbiased how-to piece on all iPhone issues.

As much as we'd like to, we do not have a photographic memory. We can forget everything, including our iPhone passcodes. That's what happened to me last week.

How to Bypass iPhone Passcode

I tried the passcode a few times but to no avail. I had to take to the internet to see what I could do about it. By then, I had attempted the wrong passwords enough times to get the iPhone blocked and couldn't even try a new password.

Here's what I found on the subject, all the ways that can help you bypass the passcode and enter a locked iPhone.

5 Tried and Tested Ways to Unlock Your iPhone Passcode


Here are the five ways that you can use to make your way around the iPhone passcode:

These methods are used by many people who get locked out of their iPhones. These are guaranteed to work and deliver the results you want. If you want to know how to use these, keep reading.

NOTE:

  1. Some of these methods need you to use iCloud or iTunes. You need to have the passwords of these accounts for these methods to work.
  2. Your unlocking progress can also be slowed down by these limitations, as iCloud can sometimes take up to several business days to verify your identity if you happen to lose the password.

What worked the best for me was Mobitrix LockAway software. In my opinion, it is the best way to bypass the iPhone passcode. It is professional software designed to be simple and easy to install and use. Once you install it, you can bypass the iPhone passcode in just a few simple steps.

Let's get started with the methods!

Bypass iPhone Passcode by using Find My iPhone

Erase find my on iCloud

Click Erase iPhone on iCloud

Find my iPhone is designed to locate lost iPhones or delete their data if you cannot retrieve the device. When this function deletes the data from your iPhone, it also removes the password.

Here's how you can use this method to unlock an iPhone:

  1. Grab a computer and open the iCloud website in a web browser. Log in to the Apple account linked to your iPhone to start the process.
  2. Once you have successfully logged in, the iCloud web applications will appear on the webpage. Open the one that says Find iPhone.
  3. On the screen that opens, click on All Devices at the top of the page. Then select the iPhone you want to remove the password of.
  4. On the next screen, you can do many things about the iPhone. You need to select the option that says Erase iPhone. This operation will delete everything on the phone, including the password you forgot.

This method comes with the following pros and cons:

Pros:

  • The method is relatively easy to execute.

Cons:

  • This method deletes all settings and data on the iPhone. As the function's name is Erase iPhone, it does precisely that.
  • You need to know the iCloud ID and Password of the iPhone that you are erasing to execute this method.
  • If you do not have an internet connection or Wi-Fi and mobile data are turned off on the erasing iPhone, this method will not work.
  • You need to set up Find my iPhone on the iPhone beforehand. If this option is not set up, this method will not work.

That is available in the form of Mobitrix LockAway-Unlock iPhone Passcode. It removes all the complicated steps from the unlock procedure and makes unlocking an iPhone easy.

Bypass iPhone Passcode by Recovery Mode

Here's how you can use the recovery mode feature of an iPhone to bypass the passcode:

Step 1 – Install iTunes on your PC or Finder on your Mac.

Step 2 – Use the method for putting your iPhone into recovery mode (using side and volume buttons). Once the iPhone is in recovery mode, connect it to the computer.

Step 3 – Open iTunes or Finder and select the device.

Step 4 – It will ask you to Restore or Update the iPhone, select Restore.

After this, iTunes or Finder will download iOS for your iPhone and install it. This operation will remove any passcode or biometric lock that the iPhone has.

Here are the pros and cons of using this method to unlock an iPhone:

Pros:

  • You can do it without any help from professionals.
  • Apple recommends this method, and even Apple care stores use this method to restore iPhones with stuck passcodes.

Cons:

  • All the data and settings on the iPhone will be erased. You can restore them later if you have an iCloud or iTunes backup.
  • It can sometimes get tricky to boot the device into recovery mode. If you cannot do that, the method will fail.
  • Even after the iPhone has been reset, you will need to log in to iCloud to use the iPhone. The iPhone will be rendered useless if you don't know the password.

Step 2 – Connect the device to the computer and open iTunes.

Step 3 – Click on the device icon and go to the Summary tab.

Step 4 – Click on Restore iPhone.

This will restore the iPhone to its new condition, removing all settings and data.

Here are the pros and cons of using this method:

  • It is easy to use. You don't have to do any complicated steps to get the iPhone into recovery mode.

Cons:
