Is your iPhone locked and you can’t remember the password? Here’s what you need to do.
Is your Apple iPhone locked and you can’t find where you wrote your password? So keep calm and don’t panic. We have a solution for you. Passwords help protect your smartphones, apps, data and more from unwanted access. You have the ability to set a passcode for almost every iPhone, Android device, and app you use. But keeping the same password for everything is not recommended and it is not safe either. But remembering all the passwords can also be a problem. So there may be times when you forget your iPhone unlock password. If you are an iPhone user and the wrong passcode is displayed, you may know that there are ways you can unlock your iPhone. Check it out here.
According to Apple’s support page, if you don’t remember your passcode, you need to use a computer to put your iPhone into recovery mode. However, it is important to note that this process will delete your data and settings, including your passcode, but it will also allow you to reset your iPhone. After erasing your iPhone, you can restore data and settings from a backup. And if you haven’t backed up before, you can set up your iPhone as a new device and then download all the data you have on iCloud. Here’s how to get your iPhone into recovery mode so you can wipe it and reset it.
How to Turn on iPhone Recovery Mode
Make sure you have a computer (Mac or PC): If you’re using a PC, make sure it’s Windows 8 or later and iTunes is installed. You also need the cable that came with your iPhone or another compatible cable to connect iPhone to your computer. If you do not have a computer and cannot borrow one, you must contact an Apple Retail Store or an Apple Authorized Service Provider for assistance.
Turn off your iPhone: Disconnect your iPhone from your computer if it’s connected. Turn off your iPhone using the method for your iPhone model.
Put your iPhone into recovery mode: If you have iPhone X or later, iPhone SE (2nd generation), iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus, use the side button. iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus use a volume down button. iPhone SE (1st generation) and iPhone 6s and earlier use the Home button.
You need to press and hold the correct button for your iPhone and immediately connect your iPhone to the computer. Do not release the button and hold it until the recovery mode screen appears on your iPhone, then release it. It can be noted here that if you see the passcode screen, you need to turn off your iPhone and start over.
Restore iPhone: Find your iPhone in the Finder or in iTunes on the computer it’s connected to. When you see the option to Restore or Update, choose Restore. Your computer will download the software for your iPhone and start the recovery process. If the download takes more than 15 minutes and your device exits the recovery mode screen, let the download finish, then turn off your iPhone and start over.
Wait for the process to complete. Disconnect your iPhone from the computer, set it up, and now you can use your iPhone again.
