Unlocking

Apple devices, such as the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, iPod Touch, and Mac computers can all be locked. Once locked, they can become unusable so it is important to know how the unlock them safely.

Unfortunately, you can get locked out of your device through no fault of your own. Some frequent causes of accidental locks include children randomly pressing the screen, buying a used device, or inheriting a device.

If you do get locked out of your Apple product we have many guides on the site to help you. The types of locks our articles can help you remove or bypass include:

  • Passcode Lock. Stops access to a device by means of a 4 or 6 digit code.
  • Factory, SIM, Network, or Carrier Lock. Prevents you from swapping different carriers’ SIM cards between devices on different cellular networks.

The following guides will explain important tasks, such as:

  • Unlocking iPhone. Apple’s cellular telephone.
  • Unlocking iPad. Tablet computer by Apple.
  • Unlocking Apple Watch. Electronic timepiece and fitness tool.
  • Unlocking iPod Touch. Mobile music player that can be unlocked in the same way as iPhone.
