Its really painful, when u have forgotten your iPhone icloud password, with Find my iPhone activated on it. Its really difficult to remove it as I have called customer care for my client, they asked each and every detail about the concerned iCloud id. I have been throught this, I have a gadget shop I have accidently taken a iPhone 4S ( two years back ) and but I forgot to take down the icloud id or have not said him to remove it from the device.
But when I asked him about the details he said he has forgotten about the id and password thing. So these years it was in my closet,,
Now its time to activate the iPhone.
And also if you have found any lost iPhone, You can by-pass activation lock and get the email or any contact details of the owner and you can return it ( you must not steal ). It only works for iPhone updated from 8.2 to latest.
How to Bypass iCloud Activation Lock in iOS 9 or iOS 8 for iPhone and iPad
Step #1: If the phone is in recovery mode try to update it to the latest version in iTunes ( you can’t get the data back ). If its in the activation lock status make sure you have the updated version of iOS. You can just plug in your device, open up iTunes > iPhone connected > update
Step #2: So the next step is to connect to the DNS, You can make changes by pressing home button and then tap on the WIFI settings > “I” symbol next to the WIFI symbol and then You need to type in the desired DNS in location of yours.
Step #3-4 : You have to type in the DNS settings depending upon your location, Here are some of different DNS settings for desired location.
DNS Settings :
- So if you are living in USA / North of America, enter 188.8.131.52
- Same as if you are in EUROPE, enter Europe, type in 184.108.40.206
- If are in Asia, type in 220.127.116.11
- In rest of the world, type in 18.104.22.168
Step #5-6: Now tap back to the Activation screen, Click on Activation help and then now you can see some text on the iPhone that reads, “You have successfully connected to my server”.
That’s it .,.. now you have by-passed the activation lock of the iPhone and make sure you use it for helping out others, like getting back the iPhone to the original user or guys who have forgotten the password of their and its not possible to retrieve it back.
