Many sooner or later forget the password for their iPhone or iPad. This is especially true after Apple added alternative ways to unlock the screen using Touch ID and Face ID. Or if the device has not been used for a long time: I myself do not remember what password is on my iPhone 4s, which has been in the closet for many years. For such cases, third-party developers have created a special application for macOS and Windows that allows you to quickly reset your iPhone or iPad password.
Forgot iPhone password? There is a quick way to reset it!
The utility is called Tenorshare 4uKey and can not only remove forgotten password, but also remove Apple ID and iCloud account from the device, as well as disconnect it from the corporate MDM system. It works so simple that even an unprepared user can cope with password reset. Actually, this is its main feature, since advanced users probably know how to do all this using iTunes.
How to reset iPhone password
To unlock your iPhone , first download the utility on your Mac or Windows computer. After installation, the program will immediately prompt you to connect your iPhone / iPad to reset your password.

The program only removes the forgotten password, so the owner will have to log in anyway with their Apple ID and password after the hard reset is over.
Even if you don’t forget passwords, you can use the utility, for example, before selling an iPhone. It is a good tool for removing all personal data from a gadget, which excludes data recovery after a reset even by third-party applications. For example, you can delete all of your iCloud account data.
The utility also allows you to delete Apple ID data
Corporate device owners who are restricted from using the iPhone due to MDM will appreciate the ability to bypass it and use the phone as usual.
Some people use iTunes to reset the password, however, iTunes sometimes gets errors that you can’t recognize without Google, and sometimes after recovery you can get a “brick” at the exit. It’s one thing if you’ve been using an iPhone for a long time and you know how to get out of this situation, but what if the user is less prepared? For example, the older generation is not so easy with iTunes.
