Some privacy is required on our smartphones. That’s why almost all of us have some type of locking system on our mobile phones. Aren’t we all afraid of forgetting the password we have set for our phones?
Sometimes, it is hard to remember important information, such as our password. Resetting or retrieving it so that we can use our devices again is a tedious task.
Apple stepped in and provided an easy solution that didn’t require us to connect our iPhone to Macs or PCs first.
If you forget your passcode and have failed to enter it several times, your iPhone will be locked out. You can either have it reset by someone else or connect your phone to a Mac or PC. This can be a real pain, especially if you are not tech-savvy.
iOS 15.2 has been released and includes useful features such as Digital Legacy, App Privacy Report, and more. The best part? The best part? You can now completely reset your iPhone without connecting it to a Mac or a PC.
It was difficult to reset an iPhone back then. You need to place your iPhone into DFU recovery mode and then restore it using iTunes or Finder on Windows.
This new feature allows you to erase your iPhone by tapping the button in the bottom right corner. This function is also available on iPad and iPod touch.
Do not be alarmed if you are concerned that someone could use this feature to unlock your phone, particularly stolen phones. An iPhone must be connected to the internet or mobile data in order to be reset.
You will also need the same Apple ID as you used to set it up. It’s not an easy way to steal your iPhone.
It only takes a few steps to reset or erase a locked iPhone. Because I don’t want my iPhone’s data to be erased, I am providing a screenshot taken from Apple’s official support site. Only proceed if you’re certain you want your iPhone to be locked out.
You can restore your backup if you are a meticulous backup freak like me.
If you haven’t yet backed up your iPhone, this guide shows you how to do it.
It is frustrating and annoying to be locked out of your iPhone. For forgetting your password, you’ll feel like a potato.
This is why we are so happy to finally have this feature, which gives us an extra pass in the event of such an unfortunate circumstance.
