How to Open an iPhone Without Password

Most of us have experienced the frustration of forgetting our iPhone password. Whether it’s due to a recent change or simply a memory lapse, being locked out of your device can be incredibly inconvenient. Fortunately, there are a few methods you can try to regain access to your iPhone without the need for a password.

Bypassing the Lock Screen on iPhone

If you find yourself locked out of your iPhone, here are some tips to help you bypass the lock screen:

Method 1: Using Siri

Note: This method only works on older iOS versions (iOS 8.0 – iOS 10.1) and may not work on newer devices.

  1. Activate Siri by pressing and holding the Home button or saying “Hey Siri” if enabled.
  2. Ask Siri what time it is. Siri will display the current time on the lock screen.
  3. Tap on the clock icon to enter the Clock app.
  4. In the Clock app, tap on the “+” icon to add a new clock.
  5. Type any text into the search bar and select it, then tap “Share”.
  6. In the sharing options, select Message and type any random text in the “To” field.
  7. Tap return and then tap on “+” beside “To”.
  8. A new interface will appear with various contact options.

    Tap on “Create New Contact”.

  9. Add a photo to this new contact by tapping on “Add Photo”.
  10. Browse through your photos or take a new one using the camera option.
  11. After selecting or taking a photo, tap on “Choose”.
  12. Now, you will be redirected to the contact editing page. Tap on “Add to Existing Contact”.
  13. Select the newly created contact and save it.
  14. You will be redirected to the contact list. Now, you can access the phone’s data by tapping on “Home” and then going to the Photos app.

Method 2: Using iTunes

This method requires you to have previously synced your iPhone with iTunes on your computer.

  1. Connect your iPhone to the computer using a USB cable.
  2. Open iTunes. If prompted for a password, try connecting your iPhone to another trusted computer which has previously been synced with your device.
  3. Select your iPhone icon in iTunes and navigate to the Summary tab.
  4. Click on “Restore iPhone” and follow the instructions provided by iTunes.
  5. This process will erase all data on your device but will allow you to set up your iPhone as new, without requiring a password.

    Note: If you have enabled Find My iPhone feature, you may need to enter your Apple ID and password during this process. If you don’t remember them, please refer to Apple’s official support documentation for further assistance.


    In conclusion, while it can be frustrating to find yourself locked out of your iPhone without a password, there are still methods available that can help you bypass the lock screen. However, it’s important to note that these methods may not work on all devices or iOS versions.

    It’s always recommended to keep your passwords secure and regularly back up your device to avoid data loss. If all else fails, contacting Apple Support or visiting an Apple Store is the best course of action to regain access to your device.
