Many users, including you, might have experienced or are experiencing the trouble that can't unlock your iPhone for some reasons like forgot the password, system errors occur after changing the password, or your activation has been locked because you changed the carrier. Whatever the reason might be, this guide will explain why you can't unlock iPhone and how to fix it. 

Solution 1. Regular Troubleshooting Tips

Sometimes, your iPhone might be locked due to some common reasons like your Face ID/Touch ID fails to recognize your face or your display becomes unresponsible due to some software problems or you have activated the VoiceOver mode. Whether they are the real reasons that are responsible for this problem or not, you can try the solutions below to solve it. All of these solutions will only refresh your system and won't cause data loss on your device. 

  • Force restart your iPhone. A force restart can bring your iPhone back to life when its screen gets frozen.
  • Turn off the VoiceOver mode. If you hear a voice telling you "Passcode field" when you enter the password, that means you've activated the VoiceOver mode. In that mode, you can't unlock your device in regular ways. To solve this, you can ask Siri to turn off VoiceOver. 
  • Try inputting 123456. Sometimes the Apple system may fail to recognize the new passcode you set. In that situation, your device will change your passcode to the default one. So, you can try to enter 123456 to rescue your locked iPhone.

We do hope you can unlock your iPhone with the methods we offered above. But if none of them works or you've completely forgotten your passcode, you have to use some hard-line approaches, shown below, to get into your locked iPhone.
