While Apple tries to fix the latest iPhone problems, here’s how to recover passcodes in a few simple steps.

It wasn’t a very pleasant end of the year for Apple: the iPhone 15 gave problems as soon as they were released, due to overheating due to the conflict between the operating system update, iOS 17, and third-party apps. It’s still.

The sudden and mysterious nighttime shutdowns, the certainty that no new iPad will be released in 2023, for the first time since 2010. Without forgetting the delays in the use of native Artificial Intelligence, entrusted, perhaps, to the main US newspapers. Not only.

After the latest iOS update, iOS 17.2 specifically, there have been many reports of problems related to batteries and the inability to connect to network providers. In short, for 2024 Apple has a lot to do to catch up. In the meantime, it’s better to think about things that work on devices branded by the most famous bitten Apple in the world.

iPhone, how to reset the unlock code even without knowing it

In a tech world where we have tons of passwords, it happens that we forget the Apple passcode. Fortunately, recovery is not that impossible, a few boomer-proof steps and everything goes back to normal. With one clarification. Thanks to the advent of iOS 17, Apple has introduced a feature in this regard that allows you to reset the unlock code even without knowing it, with a 72-hour window that allows you to use the old passcode.

Having said that and starting from the assumption that we have entered the wrong code too many times on the lock screen of your iPhone, here Apple blocks us with the screen: iPhone disabled. No fear. The procedure, as we were saying, is very simple: we need to select “Forgot code?”, a nice tap and our iPhone goes into security lock.

A new panel will open, you need to tap again on “Try to reset the passcode”: iOS 17 will ask you to enter the previous passcode which, if correct, will allow you to choose a new one to enter twice to verify it. Remember to use this procedure only if 72 hours have passed since the last unlock, otherwise it will not be usable.

Finally, if you don’t remember the passcode when you try again, use a computer (Mac is better but it works the same for PC too) to activate recovery mode on the iPhone. Recovery mode allows you to erase your iPhone to access its configurations again. After erasing your iPhone, you can restore your data and settings from backup. If you haven’t backed up your iPhone, you can set it up as a new device and download the data you have in iCloud.
