🎗️Does Removing iPhone Passcode Delete Everything on iPhone

You may wonder if all the data on your iPhone is still there after unlocking. Unfortunately, most methods of unlocking your iPhone will delete the data on your iPhone, including photos, videos, apps, etc., that is, factory resetting your phone. Although the last way to unlock an iPhone using Siri in this article won't erase data, it's just a loophole in the iOS system, so the success of unlocking isn't guaranteed.

If you had an iPhone backup before unlocking, you can restore your iPhone through the backup after you erase the iPhone. To protect your data from being lost, we recommend you back up your iPhone frequently. A professional iPhone backup tool - EaseUS MobiMover, is recommended here. This versatile tool helps you back up all data and files on your iPhone without iCloud quickly and safely.

Instead of using iTunes to restore the iPhone, you can bypass iPhone passcode without iTunes through a reliable unlocking tool, iCloud, the Erase iPhone feature on the lock screen, or Siri. Not all the methods here can guarantee success, so we recommend you use a professional unlocking tool, like EaseUS MobiUnlock, to remove your iPhone passcode. Using MobiUnlock is safe and reliable with a high success rate.
