But for now, let’s get to know a little bit more about the activation lock and disabled Apple ID first.
Part 1: About Activation Lock and Apple ID
Why is Your Apple ID Disabled?
If you can’t remember the correct password of your Apple ID, and tried too many times with wrong passwords, then your Apple ID may very much likely get disabled, leaving you no option but to reset your password. Under this circumstance, you can’t get into your device even if you have suddenly remembered the correct password. You can only reset the password with the original Apple ID information.
The situation is even worse if you happen to have an activation lock on your device.
What is Activation Lock?
The activation lock is a feature that is intended to forestall any other person from utilizing your Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, or iPod) if it's at any point lost or taken. The Activation Lock turns on naturally when you turn on Find My [device]. This feature helps to keep your gadget secure, regardless of whether it's in an inappropriate hand, and can improve your odds of recovering it.
However, this useful security insurance can also cause some problem for us as well.
One of the most common situations is that when you buy a second hand iPhone or iPad, and the user does not have the original activation lock removed. In this case, your device would be locked by the activation lock, and you can not have access to it unless you have the information of the original Apple ID.
Another scenario that happens to a lot of people is when you restore your own device, only to find it is protected by activation lock. This usually would not be a problem because all you need to do is input the password to unlock it. But if you don’t remember your Apple ID password, it could also cause dramatic inconvenience.
It could be tricky to bypass activation lock, especially when you have a disabled Apple ID logged in. However, bypassing activation lock when Apple ID disabled is not impossible. You can either reset the Apple ID and remove the activation lock, or directly bypass activation lock without any Apple ID information. We will get into both solutions now.
