How to Bypass iPhone Lock Easily
Mobile device developers care about the safety of their users. For this reason, smartphones receive various means of protection. For instance, in Apple’s effort to constantly improve the security level of its mobile products, they introduced password protection and Face and Touch ID technologies.
Our smartphones are watching us all the time. Know more by reading the article.
However, these protections can create situations where, for various reasons, we cannot unlock our iPhone. And many of us have already run to the service to look for help. But in fact, it’s much simpler to solve this problem.
We’ve prepared for you several ways to bypass the iPhone lock yourself. But keep in mind that these methods have long been known to hackers, and anyone can use them. So be careful.
Protect your data and use encrypted smartphones.
Part 1: How to bypass iPhone lock via iCloud
iCloud is Apple’s proprietary cloud storage. The storage keeps applications up-to-date on all devices and allows you to access photos, videos, documents from any device. But how do you bypass the iPhone lock through iCloud? To do this, you must have enabled “Find phone.”
This feature allows you to remotely delete all the content from your smartphone in case of its loss. The advantage of this method is that you can be in any city and any country, as long as you have internet access to log in to iCloud. But if it is deactivated, it will not be possible to bypass the mobile device in this way.
Unblocking through the service is carried out as follows:
Step 1: Open https://www.icloud.com/find.
Step 2: Log in with your Apple ID.
Step 3: Find the position of your device on the map.
Step 4: In the menu, select the “All devices” section.
Step 5: Select “Erase data” on the small device control panel.
Then the system will ask for the Apple ID password again. You should enter it.
If all the listed items are successfully completed, a system message will appear about the beginning of the process of deleting settings and content.
After the password has been reset, you can try to restore the data from the backup. To do this, you should use the “Settings Assistant,” but no one can guarantee a positive recovery outcome.

Part 2: How to bypass iPhone lock via iTunes
This is another way to solve the problem. You can bypass the iPhone lock via iTunes using a personal computer.
The recovery procedure is as follows:
Step 1: Open iTunes on your PC, connect your phone through a special USB and sync with device.
After the synchronization is completed, a backup copy will be created on the computer. If there was no synchronization between the devices earlier, the program will ask for a password – then this method cannot solve your problem.
Step 2: If the synchronization was successful, click on the mobile device icon in the upper control panel.
Step 3: Click on the “Restore iPhone” button when the “Overview” tab opens.
Step 4: The system window will open, in which you should select “Create a backup.”
Now the only thing that remains is to complete the recovery procedure. After that, the user will be able to set a new password on the smartphone. The advantage of this method of recovery is that it does not erase information from the device.
Main features of iOS are listed here.
As you can see, you can bypass the iPhone lock without a password, using only a computer and software. So why won’t the third parties or hackers be able to do this?
Part 3: How to bypass iPhone lock via Find My
If the “Find iPhone” function was enabled, you could use the instructions above to use iCloud. You can access the service from any other mobile device: a smartphone or tablet. That is, you do not need to have a computer at hand; if you are looking for a way to remove the password without a PC, use another iDevice.
Step 1: Open “Find My” on the device.
Step 2: Log in to iCloud.
Step 3: Find your device from the list of available ones.
Step 4: Select the iPhone and click “Erase this device.”
In this case, all the content from the device will also be deleted.

Part 4: How to bypass iPhone by installing a new firmware?
There is another method of hard password reset. It consists in switching the device to DFU mode to install the firmware. The process of activating this mode may differ for each phone model. For example, you need to connect iPhone X to your computer via Lightning and launch iTunes, then hold two keys for ten seconds – the side one and the one for reducing the volume of sound playback.
Next, click on the button and wait for 10 seconds. Then agree to the program’s suggestion to check for updates. If this is found, you can change the firmware.
*Note: Updating via iTunes is not suitable for all users: the “weight” of the firmware can be over 1 GB, and if the internet connection is slow, the whole process will take several hours.
Also, you can use the pre-download method. However, it means that you need to save the new firmware to your computer (a file in the .IPSW format). To do this, it is best to use high-speed internet. Then copy the firmware file and place it at the following address:
C:Documents and Setting/username/Application Data/Apple/Computer/iTunes/iPhone/Software Updates
Step 1: Connect the iPhone to the computer using a cable.
Step 2: Then launch the iTunes app.
Step 3: Click on the device icon in the upper menu.
Step 4: Press CTRL on the keyboard and “Restore iPhone” in the program window.
Step 5: Go to the location of the previously downloaded firmware, select it and click on “Open.”
All that needs to be done next is to wait for the update procedure to complete. After it ends, you will receive a “clean” mobile device and will be able to set a new password.
Simple passwords can’t protect your data.
