How to unlock iPhone without Apple ID or password.
Even if we restore the code, we will find the activation lock (which reminds us never to give iCloud credentials when losing an iPhone), which requires entering the email the Apple ID of the previous owner and follow a few steps before you can use the iPhone.
This means that we will not be able to use an iPhone that is not ours without the consent of its legitimate owner, so at this point we should desist from changing the lock code. If, on the other hand, we are talking about our iPhone for which we have simply forgotten the code, we can restore it. Taking into account that we will need a PC with iTunes or a Mac, we will do it like this:
- If the iPhone was connected to the computer, we disconnected it.
- Turn off the iPhone.
- Press and hold the side button (from iPhone 8 onwards), the volume down button on iPhone 7 or the home button on the first generation iPhone SE or iPhone 6S and earlier.
- While holding down the button, we plug the iPhone into the computer.
- Continue to hold the button down until we see a recovery mode message on the screen.
- When Finder or iTunes detects the iPhone and offers us to restore it, we will touch Restore, then, if it asks us, we will touch Restore and update.
- Once the process is finished, which can take several minutes, we can unplug the iPhone and configure it to use it.
During the configuration we can restore the iCloud backup, if we have it, or the backup on the Mac, if applicable. With this we will have all the information at our disposal and we will have been able to create a new code during the configuration process, leaving behind the old code that we did not know.
