Not so fast there apple master. IPod's and iPads can be unlocked from the cloud and returned to a usable state. It requires the opening of the IDevices and crossing a couple of pins, what pins to cross depends on the model number, give me the model and I will get you a step by step guide

How to unlock an ipad


If you remember the password of your iPad, it's would be easy. However, you can still refer to below steps to unlock an iPad without password.
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.

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
