Part 2. How to Unlock iPhone Running iOS 8.0 to iOS 13 with Siri

Siri, a common solution that many bloggers have introduced, works effectively to unlock the iPhone running iOS 8.0 to iOS 13.

Step 1. Long press the Home button to activate your Siri on your locked iPhone.

Step 2. Ask her: What time is it?" to open the iOS clock functionality.

Part 3. How to Unlock Any iPhone with iTunes

iTunes is another way to unlock your iPhone. By restoring your device from iTunes, you can remove all content and settings, including your passcode, from your device. If you've backed up your device, then you don't have to worry about data loss, as you can restore your device from the backup. While if you haven't made any backup, you will lose everything on your iPhone.

To unlock your iPhone with iTunes:

Step 1. Put your iPhone in recovery mode.

The step will vary depending on different iPhone models. You can check Apple's official site to put your device in recovery mode.

After putting your iPhone in recovery mode, you need to connect your iPhone to the computer. Then you will see a popup window that says, "There is a problem with the iPhone that requires it to be restored." From that window, select "Restore" to erase your iPhone.

Part 5. Unlock Your iPhone with a Different Network Provider or Carrier

If you find that your device is locked to a carrier or network provider, then you can contact your carrier or network provider to unlock your device. Usually, the carrier needs you to meet the requirements for unlocking. Once you meet, it will take a few days to unlock your device. After your carrier unlocks your device, you can insert your new SIM card on your device. If you don't have a new SIM card, you can back up your iPhone, erase your iPhone, and restore your iPhone from the backup you just made.
