But this procedure will remove all your essential data, and you will also be needing a computer to restore your device. Here we will explain how to unlock the iPhone pass-code without a computer. The methods we are going to tell also helps you in saving your important data.
Method 1: Using Siri
You can easily reset your iPhone passcode without data loss by exploiting the Siri loophole. It is one of the best practices to unlock the iPhone passcode without a computer. Mainly it works for the iOS devices running with version iOS 8.0 and iOS 10.1. Before going to provide a detailed description, we would add one crucial point that it sometimes works and sometimes not. But we suggest at least give it a try to save your device from data loss.
Long press the home button to enable Siri. Make sure you have an internet connection; otherwise, it is not going to connect you with Siri.
Now ask Siri to display current time for you by merely speaking, “Hey, Siri, what is the current time?”
Siri will take you to the screen displaying the Clock showing the current time. This Clock is the feature of the iPhone to let you connect to world time. On the right, look at the top corner, there is an option of “+.” Tap on that icon to connect to another clock.
Connect to another country’s Clock and then select all the text you displayed in the text bar. After selecting all, it will start showing the options of “cut,” “copy,” “define,” and “share.” Go for the share option.
In the share option, you will get options to share, like through text messages, notes, and mail, etc. Out of all the options, select the message icon.
It will take you to the iMessage app, and here you will see an option of “to send” and text message. Write anything in the “to” section and press return on the keyboard to continue the process. After that, see for the “+” option on the top right corner to add more contacts in the text message.
In the adding options, select the option of creat new contact. Taping on this option, it will open an interface showing the different options. Tap on the add photo option. It will take you to choose a photo option, choose a photo from the library. It will open the whole photos media for you. After the wait of a few minutes or seconds, tap again on the home screen button, and if it all went well, then you will again be able to be in your device and can reset your passcode.
We recommend you to give a try to this procedure as it saves you from data loss and not dependent on the computer.
