Step 3 Remove the iPad from the computer if iTunes asks for your passcode, and then follow the steps in Section 2.
Step 4 Right-click on the iPad icon in the left column of the iTunes window if you're not prompted for the passcode. Click "Back Up."
Step 5 Click "Restore" when the backup finishes. The iPad will enter Recovery Mode and reset its settings.
Step 6 Right-click the iPad icon again when the device reboots and select "Restore from Backup..." This replaces the content that was deleted during the reset.
Reset an iPad Never Synced with iTunes Step 1 Disconnect the iPad from the computer, but leave the USB cable connected to the computer.

Step 3 Connect the iPad to the computer while holding down the "Home" button to turn on the iPad.
Step 4 Release the "Home" button when you see a message that says, "Connect to iTunes."

You will have to restore it by connecting to iTunes on your computer. That will erase all settings including the password. If you have a backup you can get it then set up as a new device with a new password.

I think you have to restore your iPad. You can follow below content.

How to unlock iPad without password or how to unlock disabled iPad? It is a good habit to have your iPad backed up regularly. In case of your iPad is locked, disabled or being stolen, you can easily recover your data from it. Otherwise, you'll lose all the data. To unlock iPad screen without password or to unlock disabled iPad mean you have to remove your previous pass code and restore your iPad. Here we introduce three methods which you can follow.
Method One: How to unlock iPad without password using iTunes

  • 1. Connect iPad to the computer you have synced with.
  • 2. Open iTunes on your computer and connect it with your iPad. If fortunate, you can enter the iTunes without password. But in most cases, there would be prompt asking for a pass code. Try another computer you've synced with, or use recovery mode. (The recovery mode will be mentioned in method three.)
  • 3. Find your iPad in summary and make a manual backup. Once the backup have finished, click Restore your iPad with the most relevant back-up.

Method Two: How to unlock iPad screen without password with iCloud
You can also use iCloud to remove your password and recover your data if you have backed up before it was locked. And it is in the premise that you have set up Find My iPhone on your iPad, and you did remember your Apple ID, you can use iCloud to unlock your iPad.
  • 1. Open your laptop or computer, go to icloud.com/find or open the iCloud app.
  • 2. If the sign-in window pops up, just sign in with your Apple ID.
  • 3. There's an All Devices button at the top-left of the window, click on it to call out a drop-down menu and choose your iOS device.
  • 4. Click Erase (your device) in the prompt to finalize the process.
  • 5. Now you can either recovery data to your device from a backup or set up as new if there isn't any back-up before.


Method Three: How to unlock a disabled iPad in recovery mode?
If you've neither synced with iTunes nor set up Find My iPhone in iCloud, you'll need to wipe your iPad to factory setting to remove the password, which means you'll suffer losing all your data on iPad and get it as a new one.
Please pay attention there is a slight difference in putting different models of iPad into recovery mode.
iPad Air
  • 1. Turn off your iPad Air, press and hold the Home button.
  • 2. While holding the Home key, connect the USB cable to the device. Wait until the Apple logo appears and keep holding the Home button for few more seconds.
  • 3. Continue holding the Home button until the iTunes logo appears.
iPad mini/iPad pro
  • 1. Connect your iPad to your computer or laptop and open iTunes.
  • 2. While your device is connected, force to restart it.
  • 3. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. Don't release when you see the Apple logo. Keep holding both buttons until you see the recovery mode screen.
Now you have entered the recovery mode, and

1. When you see the option to Restore and Update, click it.

2. Wait for the process to finish. Then you can set up and use your device.

I bought an IPad mini with a passcode and I tried many times to restore to factory and I always got errors like 3194, I believe. Restore failed on several Windows 7 laptops (by putting the iPad mini2 into recovery mode because the IPad mini2 would not go into DFU) that I have and I was finally able to restore to factory using a Windows 10 machine which is just crazy but nonetheless it worked.

SOURCE: how do I unlock a locked up ipad?

If you've got a locked up iPad app or otherwise misbehaving iPad, and want to reboot / reset your iPad, simply hold the sleep and home buttons together until the iPad restarts.
You'll see the shutoff slider come up first, but just keep holding. The screen will go blank and the Apple logo will reappear as the iPad reboots.
Note: this does not reset any data on your iPad. This is just a restart, equivalent to rebooting your computer.

How do I unlock my ipad activation lock without i-tunes. I forgot my password and apple I'd.


You can't. You need to use a computer with iTunes on it. You can find your apple ID using your email address. Then you can click Forgot Password.

There is no way to get past an apple iPad lock screen apart from a Factory Restore.

Remove iCloud lock from iPad


I am not aware of an ' iCloud Lock '. If you mean the user set passcode, the only way is to do a Factory Reset.

iCloud has a password, and that is the same one you use at the App Store. That has to remain in place to protect your credit card use. If you have forgotten that password, you can click Forgot Password link and a reset will be emailed to the email address associated with your iCloud/iStore account.

Over ride reset


Hi there, the is no official supported way to unlock an iCloud locked device beside using the password or resetting it(via apple process), many 3rd part site boast about being able to do so however I do not have first hand knowledge that they are successful. I am so confident in the fact that you will not be able to remove the iCloud lock that I would be will to say "you can't" but anything is possible. You can sell the device for parts. Sorry I am not able to offer you more help.

Thanks and good luck

How do I transfer my new password to my new ipad as I cannot use


You cannot transfer a password. Each device has its own password. If it was possible to transfer a password, any stranger from another device could transfer their own password to your ipad, then you would be locked out of your own personal ipad.

My ipad is displaying a picture of a person behind bars as if in jail how do i unlock it from this screen? N


If it is your iPad, you must know the unlock code. and the password connected to your Apple id. If you entered three times a wrong code, the iPad locks up and only can be unlocked when you enter your password, belonging to the Apple account the iPad is connected to.
This security is so strong it is not hacked. The legal owner still can send messages to it. Perhaps he /she did send the picture?
If the iPad is really yours and you have the invoice, take both and your ID, to an Apple store and ask if they can help.

On my apple ipad mini model A1432 that I bought from a friend the passcode that I'm putting in is incorrect. How can I get a new passcode?


After you put in the wrong pass code 3 times, you only can unlock the iPad with the correct password, belonging to the Apple ID from what is only a part shown on the screen. If you don't have the passcode nor the password Apple assumes you are not the legal owner, and you can't use the iPad anymore. Just go back to your friend, ask him to unlock the screen, to wipe the content and reset the iPad to factory settings.
For that goto settings, general and scroll to the bottom line and press that. then the second line wipe everything. Again the login code is asked. but after that the iPad is empty.Your friend should also remove the iPad from his list of registered Apple equipment.
