Don't worry. In this article, we will share with you how to unlock iPhone without passcode. Since it's easy to use Apple ID and password to erase iPhone, this guide will focus on how to bypass iPhone passcode without Apple ID

Part 1. Is There Any Risk in Unlocking an iPhone

Before you begin, you must understand that many unlocking methods may result in data loss. Make sure you have backed up your locked iPhone before or there's no essential data stored on your locked device. In that case, losing data is not a big deal.

In addition, there's one more thing you need to keep in your mind. As long as your locked iPhone is signed in and the Find My iPhone feature is turned on, you will be asked to enter the original Apple ID and password to unlock the Activation Lock (see iCloud Activation Lock Removal Free for free software). Only in this way can you get access to your iPhone normally after removing the passcode. If you buy a second-hand iPhone without knowing its Apple ID password, refer to How to Remove Activation Lock Without Previous Owner for details.

Therefore, remember these two points before you begin to use the following methods to unlock iPhone passcode without Apple ID. See: How to Bypass Activation Lock for more information if you want to unlock the iCloud lock after a factory reset.

Part 2. How to Bypass iPhone Passcode Without Apple ID

In this section, we will share two ways to help you bypass iPhone passcode without Apple ID if you just happen to forget the screen passcode and the Apple ID password. Here we go.

1. EaseUS MobiUnlock

First of all, we will introduce a preferred and reliable iPhone unlocker tool - EaseUS MobiUnlock for iOS. This unlocking software is exclusively designed for iOS devices, such as iPhone and iPad. The principle of its passcode unlocking is to delete the current iOS system and replace it with a new one.

Maybe the new iOS system would not be the original version and the latest version currently supported by the device will be installed.

Step 1. Open EaseUS MobiUnlock on your computer, select "Unlock Screen Passcode."

Click Remove Apple ID

Step 2. Connect the iPhone, iPad, or iPod to the computer, and then click "Start" to proceed.

Step 3. Check your device model and click "Next" to download the latest version of firmware for your device. If the firmware has been downloaded already, select the package instead.

Download or select firmware

Step 4. When the verification has completed, click "Unlock Now". In the warning window, enter the information required and click "Unlock" again to unlock your iPhone, iPad, or iPod without passcode.

Unlock the device

Step 5. Wait for the tool to reset your device. Afterward, you can set up and use your device again.

Wait for the process to complete

Don't unplug the cable during the unlocking process, or it may result in a bricked iPhone.

Moreover, once you remove the passcode using EassUS MobiUnlock, you are allowed to enter any Apple ID and password to activate the device if you didn't enable the Find My iPhone before. On the contrary, you will be required to enter the original Apple ID and password if this device is signed to before.

EaseUS MobiUnlock is also able to bypass the Activation Lock from iPhone 5S to iPhone X with the iOS version between 12.0 to 14.8. Using this EaseUS software to bypass the iPhone Activation Lock will not cause data loss.

To be honest, most iPhone models are relatively new and this application is less-efficient. So it is recommended to use this service to unlock your iPhone passcode and then you enter the Apple ID and password to access your iPhone.

This reliable iOS unlocking tool also enables you to remove the iPad passcode. You can click below to learn more information:

Part 3. Alternatives to Unlock iPhone Passcode

Except for the previous two ways to unlock iPhone without passcode and Apple ID password, here are additional ways to remove the iPhone lock screen. But you need to enter the original Apple ID and password to unlock the Activation Lock after you use the following solutions to unlock the passcode.

  • iTunes/Finder
  • iCloud

It is quite common to back up iPhone to iTunes. And this service is capable of more. If the Find My iPhone feature is turned off, then you can use iTunes to restore your locked device.

However, you are expected to use iCloud to reset your iPhone if Find My iPhone is enabled. You can also use iCloud to back up iPhone.
