What to Do If You Forgot Your iPad Password


November 23, 2016 09:00 / Posted by Boey Wong

I forgot my iPad Password and can unlock it, but I will lose everything since I have never backed up my information on my iPad. What can I do? Is there a none-restore way to bypass or reset iPad password? Or any idea that I can get back the lost data like photos, contacts after restoring? Thanks so much for any help!

I am sorry to tell you that there is no way to bypass the forgotted iPad passcode except for restoring iPad to factory settings. As a consequence, you will lose all contents and settings for that if you’ve never back them up. In fact, normally iCloud backups are done automatically as long as iPad is Wi-Fi connected to internet, locked and plugged into a power source. That means you might have some available iCloud backups to restore from without noticing. To check what’s your latest iCloud backup, go to Settings iCloudBackup – Turn on iCloud Backup, then you can see all your existing iCloud backups with date and time displaying under Back Up Now.
