Now let's get started the specific operation to disable iPhone lock screen passcode.

Method 1. Disable iPhone Lock Screen Password without using iTunes (Recommend)

If your iPhone/iPad has never synced with iTunes before, then you cannot restore your device in iTunes in order to remove the passcode. Actually, according to feedbacks from many iPhone users, iTunes is hard to use and can cause errors easily. Here is an easier and more efficient method to help you unlock a locked iPhone by repairing operating system with ReiBoot.

Step 1: Run ReiBoot on your computer and connect your passcode locked iPhone/iPad to computer with USB cable. Click Fix All iOS Stuck in ReiBoot.

Method 2. Wipe out iPhone, iPad, iPod Passcode by Restoring the Device to Factory Settings

Factory restore iOS device is usually the first way that comes to our mind when iPad, iPod or iPhone is locked. However, if you restore your iDevice to factory settings, all pictures, videos, contacts, SMS, apps, etc. will be cleared. Before moving on, I strongly advise you to recover/transfer the data and apps from iPhone, iPad, iPod to your computer. Then follow the guide below.


Tips: While restoring iDevice from iTunes backup, some users are faced with another problem: iTunes asking for a password at backup restore even never set up that password. In this case, you are advised to use a tool called iPhone Backup Unlocker to recover your lost or forgotten backup password in order to restore the encrypted iTunes backup. This iTunes backup password recovery tool provides three different methods by using different password breaking technologies. You can remove the iPhone backup password firstly and then restore your iPhone data from the backup file.
