Hey, there. I have forgotten the password on my iPad, so now I am totally locked out of my iPad. I actually don’t know much about technique on iOS especially about how to get back password. Usually I would rather play game on iPad, as it is easier and more convenient to handle games on iPad. Is there a way to get back the password? Please help me soon! Thanks!

Have you ever met such trouble that you’ve input a wrong password six times on your iPhone or iPad? And you just get a screen saying “iPhone is disabled. Please try again in 2 minutes”. It is upsetting when you’re locked out of your iPhone or iPad because you’ve forgotten the password. But forgetting password would often happen to everyone as we may set up different password for different privacy if it’s necessary, and we may not remember so many various passwords, which is a normal accident. However, please don’t be nervous or fret when you forget the password of your iPhone or iPad, as there are different methods to regain access to your iPhone or iPad.

Why we can’t bypass the password?

In fact, there is no way to bypass the password or PIN screen when you’re forgotten the password and unfortunately haven’t set up Touch ID on iPhone or iPad even though you have the username and password of the account signed into iCloud. And if you’ve entered wrong password six times, you will get such message saying ‘iPhone is disabled. Please try again in 2 minutes’, which aims at stopping you from trying over again and again. The hardware encryption keys on iOS device like iPhone or iPad are actually protected by the password you’re set up. So you have to input PIN password while you turn on or restart. To access your iPhone or iPad, you have to wipe your device and start refreshing, which deletes all of your data and settings. However, you can try the following ways to back up your data and restore them.
