How many failed passcode attempts on iPhone restrictions?

We've been hearing this for some time and I suspect the figure is close to a billion or more. A company in Germany has just admitted that they allow anyone to unlock iPhones without a password. Of course this means if you lose your phone, it can't be protected by passcode and you'll be in danger of having all your data and personal details released for theft.

As noted on that site, an iPhone 6 can't generate more than ten random characters even if you turn off the auto-generation function. This gives some insight as to the number of unsuccessful attempts.

You can find a list here of which models have failed the maximum attempt limit a number of times. In case you're wondering why someone is going to the effort of breaking your passcode when there's lots of other things to go after, then this guy's comment explains it: So you can use this information to lock out anyone who doesn't have access to your phone. Your number is known and if you are in control of their phone they will likely know it either through having had your phone previously, knowing you personally, being your family member, seeing you at a bar or through any other contact that has ever had possession of your phone.

We've noticed there is another trend of people trying to hack the phone, by finding apps that can remotely wipe the entire device. Here's one report: It seems many people have taken the iPhone 4S from a deceased relative and tried to do the wipe command via their iphone. Unfortunately for them I know several ways they can circumvent this and it won't be possible using Apple software. These methods are actually quite simple and take no more than a couple of minutes to implement. I will not name these methods and the ones that work I will provide in detail below. All you need to understand is the phone needs to be fully powered off and rebooted. Some methods can be more successful if you power off, however you will never completely clear a drive with a simple power off and restart. You will always need to physically wipe every piece of data on the phone.

Once you know how to clear an iOS device you'll never want anyone else to have it.

How do I unlock my iPad after too many attempts?

This is my iPad 2 with the black screen I want to fix. ? Apple will usually lock out the device if the battery needs to be replaced, or if the phone is damaged and the screen cracked, but it's never just your own fault. Apple won't tell you how often you're prompted to re-set your passcode, as this would give away its effectiveness, so you can always enter a new password.

I've got an old iPhone (3G) that won't hold a charge anymore. Even when charged, it has absolutely no power at all.

The reason I'm getting "Battery Service" and "Low battery message" every single day is because I keep forgetting to put the charger away properly. I have two iPad minis at home, one of which only holds a charge for about 3 hours (or maybe 6), so I'm probably not the only one who could ask this question. But since I don't have a Mac around, I have to ask it here.

So the question is, how to you reset a password for an iPad that has been locked out? Update: Apparently the iPad "locks itself" only if the battery needs replacing. This means the battery is almost dead.

If the device locks itself because of low battery you can just plug in the power cable and it'll boot up. If it refuses to let you in, then you should take it to an Apple Store.

There is no way to reset your PIN or your device without having access to the device itself, and there's no way for Apple to see it.

What is an Apple restrictions passcode?

What are the requirements to enter an iPhone in your car? Is it possible to bypass them?

I had to pass this test in order to get my own iPhone. The first thing I would say, especially for noobs like myself, is that the passcode is the strongest security tool you can get your hands on. I can't stress that enough. You can change the passcode any time you want to and it's impossible to break unless you have access to a computer.

What makes an iPhone so secure is Apple's use of biometrics and the difficulty in resetting the device without a passcode. A passcode is like your lock to your home. A lock isn't very useful if someone can just pick the door lock. On the other hand, if someone has the key to your home, they can easily let themselves in. The same is true with your iPhone and its ability to keep others out.

How Does It Work? There's actually a pretty good reason why iPhones are so secure: fingerprint readers. These days, fingerprint sensors are standard on new iPhones and almost every Android device you see has one.

Essentially, the security system works like this: when you turn on your iPhone, it will unlock itself automatically after you touch your finger to the screen. The screen will ask you for your passcode (usually 6-8 characters long) and then allow you access. It's worth noting that you can also use a fingerprint to unlock your phone if you forget your passcode.

Biometrics are much more secure than traditional passcodes because no one else besides you should have access to your information. Even with access to your information, Apple is constantly evolving its security system. The most recent updates have introduced stronger password rules, 2FA (two-factor authentication), and other features.

What Can Go Wrong? You've probably seen tons of posts online about people being locked out of their phone. Some people even lose their phone while trying to find out how to bypass the restrictions.

How many failed passcode attempts iPad restrictions?

I had this issue, which I'm sure a lot of people are going to hit. My iPad was locked down with Touch ID because we all thought it would help if I couldn't brute force it. So the first 5 attempts weren't allowed. There was a 7th attempt, the system didn't want to let me login. I went to the Settings menu and tried to disable the biometrics (fingerprint scanner). But when I hit the Settings button, it says that all of my data is being sent to iCloud and all settings saved will be deleted.

I had no fear of that happening, because I was only trying to do that to set it to factory defaults. And it doesn't delete anything because I was able to disable it. So I'm still locked out. I don't think it's been over a day now and I'm still locked out.

The only other issue I was having is that every once in awhile I get messages telling me that some other apps are using up resources and that they have to make room. What's the deal with Touch ID? Should I not be relying on it? Does it actually help anything, or just create other problems? Should we just disable it and be done with it? It sounds like you need to restore. If you're running iOS 9.3.5 on your iPad, then that's what you should use.

And, as stated in the Apple documentation linked below, if you don't pass all 5 finger swipes that will be sent to your device (because you have only 4 fingers), you'll be asked to enter a passcode instead. So, yes, you probably had a legitimate reason to enter the passcode instead of allowing the 5 attempts of fingerprint authentication to finish.

Quote: How do you disable Touch ID? Open Settings, tap Touch ID & Passcode and then select No Authentication or choose Use Passcode to enter your device PIN or Password. This will prevent Touch ID from trying to authenticate and allow you to type in a password. When prompted for a passcode to type in, type any random password and then press Enter.

After restoring your device, should you enable or disable Touch ID? If you choose to enroll your Apple Watch and you want to continue using Touch ID on your device, you can do so by following the steps here.
