What to Do When your iPad,  iPhone or iPod is disabled

We recently had someone, a bored students perhaps, come in and create a passcode on our Demo iPod which locked every customer out who was looking at the iPod’s.  After so many tries of entering the passcode, the iPod then became disabled which allowed no one to open it.  How annoying for customers. But, the good news is that there is an easy fix for anyone who has a passcode on their iPad, iPod or iPhone and was locked out.

The first thing you should realize though is this-

This process completely wipes your device clean and restarts it. What this means is that any and all of your music, movies and all other data is wiped as well.  Make sure your have all this saved on your Mac/PC before anything like this happens if possible.  iCloud is definitely the preferred choice, then you can just restore your device from iCloud. The very least you should make sure of is that you have synced your device with iTunes which can perform the restore as well.  

However, if you have never synced your device with iTunes and you’re not using the benefit of the iCloud, you can perform this easy trick to unlock your device without restoring data.  It will be like a new device.

First- Shut your device off.

Second- Open iTunes on computer.

Third- Get your charging cable plugged into your computer through the USB port.

Next- Hold down Home Button (Without Releasing) while plugging the other end of charging cable into device. Look for “Connect to iTunes” that appears on device before finally releasing Home Button.

Then- Look for “Device in Recovery Mode” in iTunes on computer, then click ok and restore device.

Below is an Apple Support link that can help walk you through restoring and resetting a passcode with iCloud if you used it to back up.

Apple marbles

Sometimes, we take so much for granted, like knowing how to open apps on Apple mobile devices and that using an iPod, iPhone or iPad is very similar.  Recently, we were teaching a group of people how to use an iPod and then we were explaining how to use the iPad.   It was more difficult for the generation of people who did not grow up using these devices and were not exposed to their many uses. After playing with both the iPad and the iPod at our demo table and getting over their initial fear of the “unknown”, they were quite impressed with how intuitive Apple has created them. One of them eventually inquired about manuals for the devices.  I am including a link for manuals at the Apple Support site.

 At the touch of your fingers, you can automatically create documents and send them by email or even AirPrint them or share what you are working on in the classroom with an overhead projector and even use AirPlay  to display pictures and video you took with your Apple mobile device.  Some long time users still do not know everything that their Apple device is capable of like AirPrint or Airplay. Below are links to learn how easy these are.
