How-To Guide: Resetting Your iPhone Passcode

Learning how to reset your elected password of an iOS device is very difficult if you do not know what you are doing. This is because every time you reset your passcode, you are essentially creating a new key for the device that requires that you enter your new passcode before it will allow you to use your iPhone or iPad again. It is in Apple’s own interest to keep people from being able to reset their elected password, because doing so would allow people to gain access to the user’s data on the devices. Fortunately, though, there are programs that you can download on the internet that will bypass any security measures that Apple puts in place to stop you from simply resetting your passcode. More details areĀ explained here.

If you want to skip the step of resetting your elected password, then you should first try resetting the Secure Memory (SMC) card. To do this, first remove the SIM card from your iPhone. Place the card into a special case that is made for it and plug the device into an electrical outlet. Turn your iPhone on, and it should display an option that displays “Wallet”. Tap on this option and follow the instructions provided.

Once you have done that, you need to go into ‘Settings’ on your device and tap on the various options that are available there. On the next screen, scroll down to the bottom and tap on “Reset”, which will replace the current lock with a series of numbers. Follow the onscreen instructions, and your phone will be reset and you can use it again without having to provide your password. If you are worried about resetting your elected password, then you should skip to the fourth step below.
