Unlocking an iPhone 6 When Forgotten Passcode

Share This:

Are you locked out of your iPhone 6 and have forgotten the passcode? Don't worry, it happens to the best of us. Fortunately, thre are a few ways to unlock your iPhone 6 and regain access to your device.

If you've never set up a passcode on your device, then you can try entering “123456” or any single number repeatedly such as 000000, 888888, or 555555. This restriction seems to be a new feature introduced with the iOS update and these numbers are the default code.

If that doesn't work, you can use Apple's official method to reset your passcode. All you need to do is enter your passcode incorrectly five times. Once you do this, a new button will appear on the bottom of your screen that says “Forgot Passcode” (or something similar). Tap this button and then follow the instructions on the screen.

You can also try using iCloud or iTunes if you have them set up with your device. To use iCloud, go to iCloud.com/find and enter your Apple ID and password. Once logged in, choose “All Devices” at the top of the page, select your iPhone 6 from the list of devices and then click “Erase iPhone” option at the bottom of the page. This will erase everything on your phone including any passcodes that may have been set up on it.

To use iTunes, connect your iPhone 6 to a computer that has iTunes installed on it. Enter recovery mode by holding down both power and home buttons until you see an Apple logo appear onscreen. Once in recovery mode, iTunes will prompt you with options to restore or update your device; select “Restore” option from here which will erase evrything including any passcodes that may have been set up on it.
