One of the reasons why Apple’s products impressed a lot of users is that they are implanted with great security systems. Once your iPhone or iPad is set up with passcode and Face/Fingerprint ID, others who do not know your passcode would have no way to access your device. But the bad thing is as long as you enter passcode wrongly for 10 times, the iPad would be disabled. You cannot use it for the moment unless unblocking it. But how, especially there is no computer around you, could you unlock the iPad?

How to Unlock iPad/iPad Mini/Air/Pro without Computer

Most ways to unlock the iPad need a computer, with iTunes, to put the iPad in recovery mode, etc. But if you have no computer by your side, you can try the two methods below. They can both tell you how to unlock iPad without computer.

Erase Your Device with iCloud

Under no computer situation, we need help from iCloud with this task. But this method requires you to set up the Find My iPhone function on your iPad, and connect to a steady Wi-Fi or cellular network. Then you can follow the steps below to unlock your iPad without a computer:

  1. From another iOS device, go to icloud.com/find.
  2. If prompted, sign in with your Apple ID.
  3. Click All Devices at the top of your browser window.
  4. Select the device that you want to erase.
  5. Click Erase [device] to erase your device and its passcode.
  6. Wait until the erasing process is over, then you can either restore the iPad from a backup or set it up as new.
