Have you ever found yourself in a situation where your iPhone is disabled and you don’t have access to iTunes? Don’t worry! In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of resetting a disabled iPhone without using iTunes.
Step 1: Connect to iCloud
If your iPhone is disabled, the first thing you should do is try to connect to iCloud. This will allow you to remotely erase your device and set it up as new.
- Open a web browser on any device and go to icloud.com.
- Sign in using your Apple ID and password.
- Once signed in, click on “Find iPhone”.
- In the “All Devices” dropdown menu, select your disabled iPhone.
- Click on “Erase iPhone” and confirm your action.
Step 2: Set up as New
After erasing your disabled iPhone using iCloud, you can now set it up as new. This will remove all data from your device, including the passcode that caused it to be disabled.
To set up as new:
- Turn on your erased iPhone by pressing and holding the power button.
- Select your language and region preferences.
- Connect to a Wi-Fi network.
- On the Apps & Data screen, select “Set Up as New iPhone”.
- Create a new Apple ID or sign in with an existing one.
1. If you have a recent backup of your disabled iPhone, you can restore it after setting up as new.
2. If you don’t have access to iCloud or your Find My iPhone feature is disabled, you may need to contact Apple Support for further assistance.
In this tutorial, we have learned how to reset a disabled iPhone without using iTunes. By connecting to iCloud and erasing the device remotely, we can then set it up as new and regain access to our iPhone. Remember to always keep your passcode in a safe place and regularly backup your device to avoid being locked out in the future.
