How do I unlock my locked iPad

My iPad is locked, how to unlock it. If this is the case with you as well, hope this post is of use to you. All these are tested to be effective by me.

1. Put the iPad into recovery mode and then connect it to iTunes to restore. This is for a situation where the iPad has not been synced with iTunes. Suppose your iPad has been synced with iTunes, then you can directly connect to iTunes to restore the iPad.

2. If Find My iPhone is enabled on the iPad, you can visit www.icloud.com to log in to your iCloud account to erase the locked iPad.

3. Or, trying an unlocking tool is also effective in wiping a locked iOS device. You can have a shot at Joyoshare iPasscode Unlocker, which I have used. Or you could google such tools as well and choose the one you like.

Re: How do I unlock my locked iPad

Ah, you mean unblocking the SIM after too many failed PIN attempts, not unlocking the iPad to use on another network.
