Try to hold down the power and home keys down for about 15 seconds each while plugged into itunes. When the screen goes black, release the power button but make sure to keep holding the home key until iTunes says; We have detected an itouch in recovery mode.

From there you can restore as normal via iTunes.

Ipad forgotten password


From the apple support site:

iOS: Forgotten passcode or device disabled after entering wrong passcode When you set up a passcode to secure the use of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and then enter the wrong passcode, you may see a a message saying your device is "disabled". Learn what to do if you have forgotten or can't remember your passcode, or if your device displays a message saying it is disabled.If you enter the wrong passcode six or more times, you'll see a message that says one of the following:
  • iPhone is disabled
  • iPad is disabled
  • iPod touch is disabled

  1. Connect the device to the computer with which you normally sync and open iTunes.
    Note: If iTunes asks you to enter the passcode, try another computer that you have synced with. Otherwise, go to "If you have never synced your device with iTunes, or you do not have access to a computer" section below.
  2. If the device is still disabled, or if iTunes does not automatically sync your device, sync the device with iTunes.
  3. When the backup and sync is complete, restore your device.
  4. When iOS Setup Assistant asks to set up your device, choose "Restore from iTunes backup".
  5. Select your device in iTunes and choose the most recent backup of your device.
Hope this helps!

From the Apple Support website:

iOS: Forgotten passcode or device disabled after entering wrong passcode
If you enter the wrong passcode six or more times, you'll see a message that says iPad is disabled.

If you have previously synced your device with iTunes, you may be able to reset the passcode by restoring the device:

Connect the device to the computer with which you normally sync and open iTunes.

Note: If iTunes asks you to enter the passcode, try another computer that you have synced with. Otherwise, go to "If you have never synced your device with iTunes, or you do not have access to a computer" section below.

  • If the device is still disabled, or if iTunes does not automatically sync your device, sync the device with iTunes.
  • When the backup and sync is complete, restore your device.
  • When iOS Setup Assistant asks to set up your device, choose "Restore from iTunes backup".
  • Select your device in iTunes and choose the most recent backup of your device.

If you have never synced your device with iTunes, or you do not have access to a computer
If you see one of following alerts, you need to erase the device:
  • "iTunes could not connect to the [device] because it is locked with a passcode. You must enter your passcode on the [device] before it can be used with iTunes."
  • "You haven't chosen to have [device] trust this computer"

Forgot iPhone passcode or iPad passcode? This can be fixed with iTunes actually.
Connect your iPhone to your computer.
In iTunes, select the iPhone in the "Devices" list, then "Summary" at the top of the screen. If iTunes doesn't automatically synchronize your iPhone, do so manually
Click "Check for Update." iTunes tells you if there is a newer version of the iPhone software available.
Click Restore. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process. When restoring, it is recommended that you backup the iPhone when prompted.
When iOS Setup Assistant asks to set up your iPhone, choose "Restore from iTunes backup."
Select your device in iTunes and choose the most recent backup of your iPhone.

Forgotten phone unlock code now cant access phone


I am afraid your only choice is to restore your phone. If you try and do a restore normally in iTunes it will ask you for your passcode, so instead you are going to have to put your iPhone into recovery mode.

With your phone on and connected to iTunes hold both the home and power button on the top. Count to ten then release the power button but continue to hold the home button. Remain holding the home button until iTunes detects an iPhone in recovery mode and tells you that you must restore.

Once you have restored be careful not to let iTunes trick you into restoring a backed up iPhone, as that backup will contain your passcode and you will be back where you began!

Hope this helps!

Bypass password to unlock ipod touch


No way to bypass passcode. The only option if passcode was forgotten is to connect to computer and restore with iTunes. There may be data loss depending on backup that was made and when it was last made.

From knowyourmobile.com:

Forgotten your iPhone Passcode?
If you have forgotten your iPhone's Passcode you will need to restore your phone via iTunes.
But first you have to put your phone into the restore mode which is a slightly fiddly process.
Plug your iPhone into your PC or Mac with the USB cable
Press and hold the power button at the top and then slide to power off the iPhone
Press the power button to power the iPhone on and keep it held while simultaneously pressing the home button
After a few seconds a yellow alert triangle will appear and the iPhone will say it is iPhone Restore Mode.
Open up iTunes and click on the Summary tab
Click on Restore to restore your iPhone. This will reset all your iPhone's setting to the factory defaults, including the Passcode. You should then follow the steps above to activate the Passcode with a memorable number
