How to Backup iPad Without Passcode
It is very common to forget the passcode you set on your iPad or iPhone. Because you always set different passcodes for different software, applications, and devices. If you happen to forget your passcode on the iPad, you can read this guide to learn how to back up and unlock your iPad without a passcode.
A passcode on an iPad can help you prevent others from accessing your data like messages, pictures, or something else. But sometimes, you may forget the passcode. That would be trouble because you may lose the data on the iPad, and you don’t know how to unlock it. When you encounter this problem, you can take the solutions in this guide as references.
What if You Forget Your iPad Passcode
It would be great if you can recall your passcode, or unlock it after trying to enter different passcodes. If not, you can only try other methods to unlock it without a passcode even if it will cause data loss. However, if the following conditions are met, you can back up the locked iPad with iTunes to avoid data loss:
Have used iTunes to sync your device with your computer;
Have not restarted your device since last time sync;
Have not used up the times to enter the passcode, and the device is not “Disabled.”
To back up iPad without passcode via iTunes:
Step 1. Launch iTunes and connect your iPad/iPhone to the computer.
Step 2. Click "Summary" on the left side of the window, and then tap on "Back Up Now" to initiate the backup process.
What if Your iPad is Disabled
If you enter the wrong passcode in a row, your iPad will say “iPad is disabled.” You can continue to try other might-be passcodes when the disabled time is up. But if you enter the wrong passcode for ten times in a row, your device will display “iPad is disabled connect to iTunes.” In this case, you can not back up your device before unlocking it. You can only use iTunes or other methods to unlock your iPad so that you can continue to use it.
