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 to 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?

No need to worry about it. In this post, we will share easy ways to help you with how to unlock iPad/iPad Mini/Air/Pro with/without computer.

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

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

Step 1. From another iOS device, go to icloud.com/find.

Step 2. If prompted, sign in with your Apple ID.

Step 3. Click All Devices at the top of your browser window.

Step 4. Select the device that you want to erase.

Step 5. Click Erase [device] to erase your device and its passcode.

Step 6. Wait until the erasing process is over, then you can either restore iPad from a backup or set it up as new.

This way will not only erase the iPad passcode but all contents on the iPad. So you need to make sure you have backed up your iPad before. And after passcode erasing, restore it from backup. We know we can restore iPad as setting it up. However, this way is restoring all iTunes backup to iPad. If you plan to recover data and files selectively, such as only photos, songs, or videos, what can you do? In the following, we will share a professional iOS data rescuing tool – PhoneRescue for iOS in the bonus tip to help you with it.
