Unlock iPhone FAQs

  • A lot of iOS users have the same question "What is the difference between 'password' and 'passcode'?". Well, the password and passcode are two different things on the iPhone/iPad. The password on the iPhone usually is meant for Apple ID and iCloud account, which is used for iTunes and App Store purchases. While the passcode is usually meant for lock screen to secure your device from unauthorized access.
  • After you keep entering the incorrect passcode, your iPhone will show the messages below:

    1. 5 incorrect passcode entries in a row, it shows "iPhone is disabled, try again in 1 minute";
    2. 7 incorrect passcode entries in a row, it shows "iPhone is disabled, try again in 5 minutes";
    3. 8 incorrect passcode entries in a row, it shows "iPhone is disabled, try again in 15 minutes";
    4. 9 incorrect passcode entries in a row, it shows "iPhone is disabled, try again in 60 minutes";
    5. 10 incorrect passcode entries in a row, it shows "iPhone is disabled, connect to iTunes";

    After 10 incorrect passcode entries, your device will be completely locked and you will have to restore your iPhone to get it unlocked.

  • If you've forgotten your iPhone passcode, you can follow the steps below to reset the forgotten passcode using iTunes.

    1. Launch iTunes on your computer and connect your iPhone to computer.
    2. If you've synced your iPhone on this computer before, wait the iTunes to sync and backup your iPhone. Then click Restore iPhone. After the device is restored, set up your iPhone and tap Restore from iTunes backup.

  • The world knows GSM as Global System for Mobile Communication and CDMA as Code Division Multiple Access. One obvious difference between both terms is the SIM cards. You can find a SIM card slot across GSM phones, while CDMA lacks one in them. Instead, they had a handset-based standard with a phone number linking with the device. With a data rate of 42Mbps, GSM was much more common and widely used as compared to the 3.6Mbps CDMA.

    Steps to Check if your Phone is GSM or CDMA

    1. Lead into its "Settings" on your iPhone and find the "General" options. From the list, select the "About" option to proceed.
    2. As you get into the respective section, find the MEID, ESN, or IMEI number. Phones with a MEID or ESN number use the CDMA system, while devices with an IMEI utilize GSM. Phones having both numbers are GSM and CDMA simultaneously.
