Unlock Activation Lock On Second-Hand IPhones: Quick Solutions

Get Stuck By Activation Lock While Setting Up Second-Hand iPhones? Here’s The Fix!

by Alan Jackson — 7 months ago in Gadgets 4 min. read

I just gave up iPhone 15 and purchased a second-hand iPhones 14 Plus. However, when I tried to set up the device, trouble came. The new device activation process got stuck because I didn’t get the iCloud password of the device’s previous owner to unlock the iCloud activation lock.

I believe that I am not the only one meeting this problem – as the second-hand iPhone selling market is larger than we can imagine. Fortunately, I found a way to get over this trouble and remove the iCloud activation lock to set up my iPhone (without a password!). So, I would like to share my experience with those also facing the same trouble as me before.

What is iCloud Activation Lock?

iCloud Activation Lock is a feature developed by Apple to protect the data safety of its device models, including iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. With this protection, you don’t need to worry about data or privacy leaks even when your devices are lost or stolen by others. Simply by setting up “Find My” on your iOS devices, the activation lock will also be turned on. Then, if you need to turn it off again, the password of your Apple ID will need to be entered, as a way to claim your ownership of the device.

As a result, Apple ID and password are must-have things to unlock the iCloud activation lock. It is recommended to check whether the device is erased or no longer connected with the previous owner’s iCloud account, or you may fall into such trouble like me.
