A lot of times, people forget what their iPhone’s passcode is. Though you can use Touch ID or Face ID to unlock the iPhone, you won’t be able to restart the phone, update the software, or do other things without the passcode. Here is how to unlock or reset your iPhone if you don’t know your passcode and want to use it again.
The old way to get an iPhone to work again is to use the Finder app or iTunes. There are two ways to do this: you can use a Mac or a PC. The new iOS 15.2 updates from Apple make it very easy to get things done. You will now be able to reset your locked iPhone without using a PC. Here’s how you do it.
You need to make sure that both your iPhone and iPad are running iOS 15.2 and iPad OS 15.2. If you don’t already have your Apple ID and password, you should do so now. Third, your device can connect to Wi-Fi or a mobile network. To wrap things up: This is the last and most important way to get rid of all your phone or tablet data.
How to Reset iPhone/iPad without a Computer?
- Turn on your iPhone or iPad and try to enter any wrong passcodes as many times as you can until you see the Try Again Later option on your phone.
- At some point later, when you see the “Try Again Later” option, type in the wrong passcode until you see the “Erase iPhone” option at the bottom right of the screen.
- When you see the “Erase iPhone” option on your phone, tap on it and then again to make sure.
- Then, type in your Apple ID password to sign out of your Apple ID on your computer or phone.
- When you’re done, choose “Erase iPhone.” This will reset your iPhone or iPad to the way it came out of the box.
- If the process is done, your iPhone or iPad will restart, and you can set it up.
If you don’t have a Mac or PC with you, you need to use the new reset feature in iOS 5.2/iPad OS 15.2. Another thing that makes this new method easy to use is that it doesn’t use the Finder app or iTunes.
