You still have questions, are there any additions or comments on the text? Write in the comments. we will certainly answer.
Forgot iCloud password (Apple ID). how to be and what to do?
Good time! It’s just that a huge number of questions are received both by e-mail and in comments to articles on the topic of a forgotten (lost, changed by someone, etc.) e-mail iCloud and its password. To be more precise, this is an Apple ID, but this does not change the essence of the matter. In order to somehow systematize all this information, it was decided to write this article. So, if you do not remember (do not know) the password or e-mail to which your (or “someone else’s”) iPhone or iPad is registered, and you really want to activate it, then this instruction is for you!
A bit of history. With the release of the iOS 7 operating system, Apple introduced additional protection for all device owners from theft, loss, etc. Now no person will be able to access the phone, as well as the data that is on it, if he does not know the Apple ID and password from it.
- Hard Reset.
- Recovery using iTunes.
- Upgrading (Upgrading or Downgrading) Firmware.
- Entering DFU mode and then trying to flash.
- Parsing into small parts and replacing certain parts of the phone.
NOTHING will help! Do not trust people who promise to “hack” it for money (most often not small!). Remember. it is impossible to delete an Apple ID without a password to it. iPhone or iPad are rigidly bound to the registration data and can only be unlinked:
- The direct owner of the device who owns this information.
- Apple employee.
Speaking of bindings, they come in two flavors:
- When activated, the system only asks for an Apple ID and password. Everything described below in the article will be devoted to this particular issue. In this case, there is hope for unlocking.
- Everything is the same, but the Lost Mode is on, in this case you will see the following inscription. This iPhone (iPad) was lost and erased (can be translated as “This iPhone was lost and all data was erased”). In the very last paragraph of the article, there are two “excellent” tips on how to proceed in this case.
So, we have the first scenario and there is no question of any loss mode, but you just forgot the password from iCloud (Apple ID) and the phone (tablet) was locked after updating the firmware or resetting the settings to the factory settings.
What to do? How do I clear the activation message? There are two ways:
- We go to the recovery page and try to do something there: indicate the mail to which the Apple ID is registered, enter an additional e-mail address, answer security questions. If you know at least something, then the chances of unlocking your iPhone increase.!
- For those who do not remember anything at all. We write (or better call) Apple Support. here is the link to the contact page. We describe your situation as accurately and in detail as possible. Remember, there are people sitting there and more often than not stupid! Most likely, after a short conversation, you will be asked to prove the fact that the device belongs and has always belonged to you. How? Provide a photo of the box (of course, not just packaging, but the place where the serial number is indicated), the serial number of the gadget itself, plus a purchase document (receipts). If everything is in order and Apple employees believe you, the iCloud Lock will be removed.
However, it may also happen that this does not happen. Why? The fact is that just a huge number of people began to forge purchase documents and thus deceive the company.
I do not presume to judge whether it is good or bad, but the fact is that the number of unlocked devices using this method has decreased and each new application already initially causes distrust.
This means that such a situation may happen. the iPhone or iPad really belongs to you, you provided all the documents, and Apple employees refuse to remove Activation Lock. How to be? Write to the English-language support (the last subtitle in this article will help you figure out how to do this) and tell them the whole story about how you forgot your iCloud password and want to unlock it.
If they do not help, then, unfortunately, there is nothing left to do but either hand over the device for spare parts, or put it on the shelf until better times.
Such is the slightly sad ending of the article, but I think that in your case everything will be “OK” and the blocking will be removed for you.
Working with iCloud
It is an important resource that stores the user’s personal data. Therefore, first of all, you need to know how to change your “iCloud” account to “iPhone”. To do this, you need to go to the smartphone settings (gray gear on the main screen).

Check your settings, apps, music, and photos after the renewal is complete. Also note that sometimes it takes a while for everything to recover. For example, music will take longer to recover normally (up to an hour), so don’t panic if you don’t see your favorite tracks on your iPhone after restoring a copy of your data.
If your device turns off after entering incorrect numbers
This is actually sad. All you can do in this case is to erase the data from the smartphone and try to resume it from the backup.

Finally. Don’t forget your iPhone passcode
Apple works very hard to preserve your personal information, so it gives you many options for personalization, customization, security, and more. But the very restoration of the device by each of the ways can once and for all do away with not only your personal data, but also with the device itself, if you do something wrong. In addition, frequent emergency reboots can ruin your device and damage the software. Therefore, take the password seriously, write it down somewhere in a notepad, save it to your Google drive as a document if you are not sure what to remember. This gives you a backup plan for emergency situations.
