All Apple devices have what is called an activation lock. If the incorrect Apple ID was still logged in when you did the factory reset, it will prompt you to log into that Apple ID before you can proceed through setup. Once you have done so, you can log out of the incorrect Apple ID and into the correct one.

This is a security feature that Apple has written into their software to deter theft of iPhones.

Re set ipad mini


Generally speaking, you need the Apple ID to reset your iPad. iPad needs you to enter the Apple ID to switch off your account and the Find My iPhone service will be turn off. If you are using iTunes to reset your iPad, you need to enter the Apple ID when your iPad reboots.

But if you have no Apple ID or passcode, you will have to reset your iPad without Apple ID. To reset iPad without Apple ID, you need first put iPad into DFU mode and connect it to your iTunes. Your iTunes will help you to reset your iPad without entering Apple ID easily. Resetting your iPad with this method will result in wiping all the data in your iPad. The following steps will show you how to do that.

Step 1: Open iTunes on your computer and connect your iPad to the computer with a USB cable.
Step 2: After that, turn off you device. Press and hold the Home button for 3 seconds.
Step 3: Put your iPad into DFU mode: Press and hold the Power and Home button for 10 seconds. Then release the power button and keep holding the home button. When you see the Apple logo disappears, you have successfully put your iPad into DFU mode.
Step 4: When iTunes detects that your iPad is in recovery mode, you can restore it now.
Step 5: Click on Restore iPad. Then you will be notified after the reset and your iPad will take a restart.

After resetting your iPad with the guidance mentioned above, you'd better create a new Apple ID and password in time. After resetting iPad, you will get all the data swept from iPad, and you can restore the files from your iPad, iTunes backup or iCloud backup. However, you can't backup iPad to iTunes/iCloud without Apple ID before you reset your iPad. In this case, you need the third-party iOS data recovery software to help you recover lost data from iPad after factory reset without Apple ID.

I bought my iPhone 5c used and need to know how to get iTunes password for account that already exists on phone or how to reset it and set up my own iTunes account on it? ??


You have to set up a new account, using your email address, password and credit card details. For obvious reasons, you can't use the previous owners account and they will be using it on their iphone 6.

Click Settings (the cog wheel)

Click I-tunes and App Store

Click on the Apple ID that you can see.

Click Sign Out

Reboot the phone (power down, and back on)

Go back to the same place and set up your own account.

I cant get into my iphone i dont know my icloud account, what should i do?


Hello Diana,

First, don't freak out, we're human and this stuff happens. Apple provides multiple ways to recover a forgotten ID login or password, and you can start the recovery process either directly on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, Mac, Windows PC, or just about anything with a web browser.
The different processes described below will work to recover a forgotten Apple ID (meaning the email address used to login), and/or reset a forgotten Apple ID password. This can be particularly helpful if you're setting up a new device for yourself or someone else, switching a device to a credit card-free ID, or changing the Apple ID associated with a device, and you can't remember the pertinent login information, or if your email changed at some point and you didn't update your Apple details to go along with it.
Before anything else, know that you can always Contact Apple for help with Apple ID account security if you want assistance through official channels to regain account access, which may be the best option for users who are overwhelmed or confused.
Recover or Reset Forgotten Apple ID or Password on iPhone & iPad
This is all done on an iOS device and is often the simplest way to log back into an Apple account:
1. Open the Settings app and scroll down and tap on "iCloud"
2. Tap on the email address at the very top of the iCloud settings screen
3. Tap on the blue text underneath the password entry that says "Forgot Apple ID or Password?" where you'll have two choices:
If you know your Apple ID and don't remember the password, type in your email address and click "Next" to start the reset process
If you don't know your Apple ID, tap on "Forgot your Apple ID?" and fill out your full name and email address to recover the Apple ID login (yes, you can then do the password reset after you have the Apple ID)
Answer the security questions pertaining to that Apple ID, and follow the onscreen directions to complete the process
At this point you should be good to go, you can reset the password for the account and then login as usual.
What if this doesn't work, or what if it doesn't find your Apple ID? You can try one of the next two options:
Find a Forgotten Apple ID by Email or Old Email Address
This is a more advanced trick to search multiple email addresses, which is incredibly helpful if you switched email accounts at some point in time and that's what has caused the login problem. This can be done with any web browser in iOS, OS X, or Windows:
1. Open the web browser of choice and go to this Apple iForgot website: https://iforgot.apple.com/appleid (creative name, eh?)
2. Enter the first and last name associated with the Apple ID, your current email address, and any and all prior email addresses to start the reset process
3. Answer the security questions associated with the user to complete the reset process
This will help to find the Apple ID, but if you can't recall the password to that ID then you'd need to go to the next step as well.
Reset an Apple ID Password from the Web
You can also start the password reset process from the official Apple ID website, this also can be done any device as long as you have a web browser:
1. Go to this My Apple ID site and under "Manage your Apple ID" choose the "Reset your password" option
2. Enter the email address associated with the account and answer the security questions as usual to complete the password reset process
Finally, if you're completely stuck, you're annoyed, confused, or none of the above has worked, you can contact Apple directly about your account here (Contact Apple for help with Apple ID account security ) or at you local Apple Store and in many situations they can help you to regain access again.
