Are you wondering how to unlock an iPhone using a Macbook? Unlocking an iPhone from a Mac is much easier than it used to be. With the new Finder functionality in Catalina and Big Sur, you can now quickly and easily unlock your iPhone without having to use iTunes.

In this blog post, we’ll show you exactly how to unlock your iPhone with a Macbook. We’ll start with the basics, like putting your iPhone into recovery mode, and then move on to more advanced steps like restoring your content from a backup. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Put Your iPhone into Recovery Mode
The first step in unlocking your iPhone with a Mac is putting the device into recovery mode. To do this, press and quickly release the volume up and down buttons in order on iPhones X or later. For other models of iPhones, follow the instructions that come with them. Once your device is in recovery mode, it will be ready for unlocking.

Step 2: Connect Your Device to Your Computer
Once your device is in recovery mode, connect it to your computer using a Lightning cable. On Macs running macOS Catalina or Big Sur, select your device in the Finder sidebar; on PCs running Windows 7 or later versions of Windows, open iTunes (which may already be installed) and select the device there.

Step 3: Restore or Update
You should see the option to Restore or Update when connecting to either Finder or iTunes — select Restore here if you want all content erased from your device after it unlocks; select Update if you want all content restored from backup after it unlocks (Note: Make sure you have made a backup before selecting Update).

Step 4: Waiting for Unlocked Status
Once restoring/updating begins, wait for the process to complete — usually takes less than 15 minutes — at which point you will see the unlocked status of your device appear in Finder/iTunes window and onscreen on the device itself. Congratulations! You have successfully unlocked your iPhone with a Macbook!
