6. After the process is complete, you can set up your iPad as new, without a passcode.
It is important to note that this method will erase all your data, so make sure you have a backup before proceeding. If you have a recent backup, you can restore it after unlocking your iPad.
Method 2: Using Siri
This method involves using Siri to bypass the iPad passcode. Please note that this method may not work on newer iPad models that have been updated to the latest iOS version. Follow these steps:
1. Wake up your iPad by pressing the home button or side button.

8. In the “To” field, type any random characters.
9. Tap on the return key on the keyboard.
10. In the message input field, tap and hold the random text and choose “Select All.”
11. Tap on the “Share” button again, and this time, choose the “Copy” option.
12. Now, navigate back to the clock interface by tapping on “Cancel” or the clock icon.
13. Tap on the “World Clock” tab.

15. In the search bar, type any random characters.
16. Tap and hold on the input field, then choose “Paste” to paste the previously copied text.
17. Tap on the “Done” button.
18. Now, you will be taken to the home screen, bypassing the passcode. You can go to the Settings app and disable the passcode to fully unlock your iPad.
In this article, we discussed two methods to unlock an iPad passcode without using a computer or iTunes. The first method involved using iCloud to remotely erase the iPad and remove the passcode. However, this method will erase all data on the device. The second method used Siri to bypass the passcode, but it may not work on all iPad models. It is recommended to have a backup of your data before attempting these methods. If all else fails, contacting Apple support or visiting an Apple Store may be the best option to unlock your iPad passcode.
Using iCloud to Unlock iPad Passcode
If you have forgotten your iPad passcode and do not have access to a computer or iTunes, don’t worry! You can still unlock your iPad using the Find My app and iCloud. This method allows you to remotely erase your iPad and reset the passcode using another Apple device.
To begin, make sure you have the Find My app installed on another Apple device, such as an iPhone or another iPad. This app is pre-installed on most Apple devices, but if you don’t have it, you can download it from the App Store.
Once you have the Find My app installed, follow these steps:
1. Open the Find My app on your iPhone or iPad.
2. Sign in using your Apple ID and password. Make sure you use the same Apple ID that is associated with the locked iPad.
3. After signing in, you will see a list of devices linked to your Apple ID. Select the locked iPad from the list.
4. On the iPad’s information page, you will find several options. Choose the “Erase iPad” option to remotely erase all the data on your device.
5. Confirm the erasure by selecting “Erase” again. This action will delete all the data from your iPad, including the passcode.
6. Once the erasure is complete, you can now set up your iPad as a new device. Follow the on-screen instructions to choose your language, set up a Wi-Fi network, and create a new passcode for your iPad.
It’s important to note that using iCloud to remotely erase your iPad will remove all data from your device. Therefore, it’s crucial to have a backup of your important files and documents. If you have previously backed up your iPad using iCloud or iTunes, you can easily restore your data after unlocking your iPad.
In conclusion, if you find yourself locked out of your iPad without access to a computer or iTunes, you can still unlock it using the Find My app and iCloud. By remotely erasing your device, you can reset the passcode and set up your iPad as a new device. Just remember to have a backup of your data to ensure you don’t lose any important information in the process.
Restoring from a Backup
If you have previously backed up your iPad using iCloud and the backup was created before the passcode was enabled, you can easily restore your device with this backup without needing a passcode. Restoring from a backup is a simple and effective way to regain access to your iPad without any external tools or programs.
To restore your iPad from a backup made on iCloud, follow these steps:
- Ensure that your iPad is connected to a stable Wi-Fi network.
- On your iPad, go to the “Settings” app.
- Tap on your name at the top of the screen to access your Apple ID settings.
- In the Apple ID settings, select “iCloud”.
- Scroll down and tap on “iCloud Backup”.
- If the iCloud Backup feature is enabled, you will see the date and time of the last backup. Make sure that this backup was created before the passcode was enabled.
- Tap on “Restore from iCloud Backup”.
- A list of available backups will appear. Select the most recent backup that doesn’t require a passcode.
- The restoration process will begin, and your iPad will restart.
- Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the restoration process.
It is important to note that restoring from a backup will erase all data and settings on your iPad. Therefore, make sure that you have a recent backup that doesn’t require a passcode to unlock before proceeding with the restoration process. Additionally, this method will only work if you have previously backed up your iPad on iCloud and if the backup was created before the passcode was enabled.
Overall, restoring from a backup made on iCloud is a convenient and efficient solution to unlock your iPad without the need for a passcode. It allows you to regain access to your device and restore your data without the use of a computer or iTunes.
Using Siri to Bypass iPad Passcode
If you are using an older iOS version on your iPad, there might be a potential loophole that allows you to bypass the passcode using Siri voice commands. This method can be quite handy if you have forgotten your passcode or if you have accidentally locked yourself out of your device. Please note that this method may not work on newer iOS versions, as Apple has made efforts to patch this loophole. However, it is worth a try if you are using an older iOS version.
To begin, make sure your iPad is connected to the internet and has Siri enabled. This method requires an active internet connection as Siri needs to access online resources to perform certain tasks. You can enable Siri by going to Settings > Siri & Search and toggle on the “Listen for “Hey Siri”” option.
Once Siri is enabled, you can access it by either holding down the home button (for iPads with a physical home button) or the power button (for iPads without a physical home button) until the Siri interface appears. Alternatively, you can also say “Hey Siri” if you have set up voice activation for Siri.
When Siri is activated, you can try using voice commands to bypass the iPad passcode. Start by saying something like, “Hey Siri, what time is it?” Siri will respond with the current time. Now, ask Siri to enable an online search by saying, “Hey Siri, search the web for images.” This will open up the Safari browser with a search query.
In the Safari browser, tap on the address bar and enter any search query. It can be a random word or phrase. Now, press and hold on the selected text until a popup menu appears. From the menu, select “Share” and then choose the “Message” option. This will open the Messages app with the selected text in a new message.
Back in the Messages app, tap on the “To” field and enter any random contact or phone number. Once you have entered a contact, tap the “Return” key on the onscreen keyboard to register the contact.
After registering the contact, tap on the “Create New Contact” button. This will bring up the Add Contact interface. Scroll down on the interface to reveal the “Add Photo” button. Tap on it to add a photo to the contact.
Here comes the trick! In the photo selection interface, tap on “Choose Photo” and you will be prompted to grant access to your photo library. Tap on “Yes” and you will be redirected to the photo library, where you can select any photo. Choose a photo and tap on “Done.”
Finally, you will be returned to the Add Contact interface. Press the home button to exit the app and voila! You have successfully bypassed the iPad passcode using Siri’s voice commands. Please note that this method may not work on newer iOS versions, so it is essential to ensure your device is running an older version if you want to give it a try.
Remember, this method should only be used if you have legitimate reasons for accessing the device and have forgotten the passcode. Unauthorized access to someone else’s device is illegal and unethical.

Factory Resetting the iPad
If you are locked out of your iPad and don’t have access to a computer or iTunes, you can still unlock the passcode by performing a factory reset on your device. This method is effective in erasing all data and settings, including the passcode lock. However, keep in mind that a factory reset will also delete all your personal files, apps, and settings. Make sure to have a backup of your important data before proceeding with this method.
To perform a factory reset on your iPad, follow these steps:
- Press and hold the power button and either the volume up or volume down button simultaneously.
- Keep holding the buttons until the power off slider appears on the screen.
- Drag the slider to turn off your iPad.
- Press and hold the power button again until the Apple logo appears.
- Release the power button, but continue to hold the volume up or volume down button.
- Keep holding the volume button until the recovery mode screen appears.
- On the recovery mode screen, you will see the option to restore or update your iPad. Select “Restore” to perform a factory reset.
- Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the factory reset process.
Once the factory reset is complete, your iPad will be reset to its original factory settings, and the passcode lock will be removed. You can set up your device as new or restore from a backup to regain access to your data.
It’s important to note that a factory reset should only be done as a last resort when all other methods fail to unlock your iPad. It is advised to use this method only if you have no other option available and are willing to lose all your data.
