Apple iPhone, iPad, iPod Forgotten Pass-code Fix

*Attention* If you have forgot your pass-code to unlock your iDevice I am sorry, But this IS the only (Official Apple) way to 'Un-Lock' it and remove pass-code to gain access without hacking it.
You are going to need a computer with the latest version of iTunes on it and unfortunately this will fully erase all data on the device .
So with the device plugged into your PC, iTunes open, if it shows up in iTunes eject it, or cancel the prompt to restore a device in recovery mode.

Hold down the Power button for 3 seconds

Without releasing the power button, also hold the Home button for 10 seconds

Without releasing the home button, release the power button and keep holding the Home button for About 20 seconds.

iTunes will detect an iPhone/iPod/iPad in recovery mode, let off button and set down device and hit RESTORE in iTunes.

If you cannot get it to work, just try again, Holding Home Button for say 9 seconds instead of 10.

have screen pass word lock cant remember code wanted to unlock without resetting phone


there is no way to unlock your phone if you have forgot your pass. it will have to be restored sorry ( the whole idea of a lock pass is to protect you if you loose your phone,so no one can simply bypass it and get your details/photos/accounts etc )

If would like to remove a pass code from an apple device, you would login and head over to settings. Next click on general > pass code or pass code lock I can't remember which one > now click disable pass code or remove pass code and you will be proceeded to put in your pass code. Now if you've done correctly try to lock and unlock your phone. I hope this helps;)
