How can I restore my iPhone 7 to factory settings without a password? As an iOS user, you should be aware of the official method for Factory Resetting your iPhone, which is to utilize the iTunes app. When you attempt to connect or factory reset your locked iPhone using iTunes, however, it will prompt you to enter the passcode first. So there’s a way to get around this!
But you must have already synced your iPhone with iTunes. Only by putting your device into Recovery mode and then attempting to connect to iTunes will you be able to bypass this. Please make a backup of your iPhone before doing a factory reset, since all data will be erased.
The following are the methods to Factory Reset a locked iPhone using iTunes:
Step 1: Make sure you have the most recent version of the iTunes software installed on your computer. It makes no difference whether you use a Mac or a PC as long as you have the right software.
Step 2 Connect your iPhone to your computer, then launch iTunes.
For iPhone 8 and iPhone X users:
In a rapid sequence, press the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons.
After that, tap and hold the Side button until the Connect to iTunes screen appears.
For iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus:
Connect to iTunes after turning off the device.
Press and hold the Volume Down and Power buttons at the same time. After you see the Connect to iTunes page, exit.
For iPhone 6/6s and older, as well as iPad:
Connect to iTunes initially, as well.
After the connection has been established, press and hold the Home and Power buttons. When you see the Connect to iTunes screen, you may turn off the Home switch.
This is how you may go directly to recovery mode on your iPhone while still connected to iTunes.
The warning “There is an issue with iPhone that needs it to be updated or restored” will appear as soon as iTunes identifies your device. Select “Restore” from the drop-down menu.
Step 3: iTunes will ask you to confirm that you want to factory reset your iPhone and that you are willing to lose all of your data and settings. When you choose “Restore and Update” from this menu, iTunes will erase your device and begin downloading the new software.
Step 4 Click “Restore iPhone” or “Restore and Update” in the Summery tab, then “Restore” in the popup confirmation box.
Step 5 Wait for the procedure to finish before using your iPhone without a passcode. After the restoration, go to iTunes and select Restore Backup to restore your iPhone from the most recent backup file.
