Recovering the Passcode of iPad

If you have forgotten your passcode, then you can use Face ID or the Touch ID to unlock the device. When the device reboot then the passcode becomes necessary.

The only trick to resolve this problem is by Resetting the iPad to the default factory settings. Resetting the device will erase all the data present in it, so make sure you have created the backup. After the device resets, recover the data from the backup.

Recovering the Passcode Through iTunes

If you have ever used the Synchronization technique to connect iPad to your iTunes, for transferring The movies and music or creating the backup on your PC, then you can recover it from your PC (for this you should have marked this PC as “Trusted” before). In case you have never done this, then this method is not for you.

You have to follow these steps to recover the passcode (it is not a lengthy procedure):

  • Connect your PC and iPad.
  • iTunes will sync firstly, so wait until this procedure is over.
  • Once that is over, tap on Device Icon which is at the top left side of the screen.
  • Tap on the button Restore.
  • Once you click on the restore, the data on the iPad will be erased, and the device will restart. Now you have to create a new passcode.

Recovery from the Recovery Mode

If you have never turned on the feature Find My iPad, or never connected the iPad and PC (or marked the PC as Trusted), you have the option to recover the passcode by Recovery Mode.

You have to follow these procedures:

  • Connect your iPad to your PC.
  • Now launch the iTunes.
  • Press the Power button and Home button simultaneously till the Apple logo appears followed by the iPad connected to iTunes. Once it appears, release the buttons.
  • Now choose Update or Restore the iPad.
  • Tap on Restore.
  • This procedure will take only a few minutes, after that the iPad will reboot, and now you have the iPad the same as you bought.
