Being locked out of your iPhone can be a frustrating experience. Usually, we have to enter the passcode, Apple ID, and password to perform a factory reset on iPhones and iPads. Fortunately, you don’t have to wait for an Apple Store appointment or take your phone to a repair shop in order to get back into your device. There are some tools that let you easily and quickly factory reset your iPhone without a password.
If your iPhone is acting up and you can’t figure out why sometimes restarting it or resetting it can be the best solution. But if you’ve never reset your iPhone before, it can be a little confusing. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to factory reset your iPhone without a password.
Before we get started, keep in mind that a factory reset will erase all of the data on your iPhone, including any pictures, videos, apps, and other files. So be sure to back up your iPhone before you begin. You can do this by connecting your iPhone to iTunes and syncing it with your computer or using iCloud.
What is a Factory Reset?
A factory reset is a complete restore of an iPhone or iPad to its original factory settings. This means that all your personal data, including photos, videos, contacts, text messages, and apps, will be permanently erased from the device. A factory reset is also sometimes called a hard reset or master reset.
If you’ve forgotten your iPhone passcode, or if you want to remove all the data from your device before selling it, you can do so by performing a factory reset. Remember that once you’ve factory reset your iPhone, there’s no going back. So, be sure to back up your device before proceeding.

Other Ways to Factory Reset an iPhone
1. Using iCloud Account
There are a few other ways to factory reset your iPhone with a password. One way is to use iCloud. If you have an iCloud account, you can go to Settings > General > Reset and select Erase All Content and Settings. When prompted, enter your Apple ID and password. In case you don’t have it, use a tool like EaseUS MobiUnlock or do it using DFU Mode via Recovery Mode. This will factory reset your device and log you out of your iCloud account.
2. Using iTunes
Another way to factory reset your iPhone with a password is to use iTunes. If you have synced your device with iTunes, you can connect it to your computer, open iTunes, and select Restore iPhone. This will erase all content and settings on your device and restore it to its factory settings.

You can also factory reset your iPhone without a password by putting it into Recovery Mode. To do this, turn off your device, then press and hold the Home button while simultaneously connecting it to your computer with a USB cable. Once in Recovery Mode, follow the prompts on your screen to restore your device to its factory settings.
Finally, if all else fails, you can put your iPhone into DFU mode and use special software to factory reset it without a password. These options may require technical knowledge, so if you are not comfortable attempting them yourself, you can contact Apple Support for assistance.
