Part 3: Unlock A Disabled iPhone without Computer
The first two methods on this post have one common significant condition: you need a computer. This can be hard if you’re outside the house and can’t get a computer nearby. In this case, you may try the Find My iPhone feature of Apple to fix your disabled iPhone without iTunes and a computer.
When you’ve signed into your Apple account on this disabled iPhone before, Find My iPhone is normally activated unless you’ve turned it off specifically on the iPhone Settings app.
To use Find My iPhone to fix your disabled iPhone, we have two ways depending on the device you have. Read on and choose one to undisable your iPhone.
Option 1: Unlock A Disabled iPhone via Another iDevice
If you have another Apple device like an iPad or iPhone, this method may help you. However, you need to make sure one thing: your disabled iPhone needs to share the same Apple account with the second one.
Only when the same Apple account is logged on both devices, can we use the Find My iPhone to unlock the disabled one.
On the iPhone or iPad, find the Find My app and launch it. On the app, go to Devices. Locate the disabled iPhone icon from the map. Hit Erase This Device from the bottom of the screen.
Option 2: Unlock A Disabled iPhone via Find My Web
Besides an application version, Find My iPhone also has this web entry and we can unlock a disabled iPhone on a browser.
On any browser, open Find My iPhone. Try to complete the login with the target Apple account and password.
During login, it will ask you to verify your identity. To pass it, you will have to enter a code into the website. When you don’t have another Apple device and the iPhone is disabled, you need to click the Didn’t get a code option on the login window.
Then, ask Apple to send the code again to
- a phone number: you can remove the Sim card from your current disabled iPhone and plug the Sim into another phone;
- email: sign in to the email that you used to create this Apple account.
Enter the digits and complete the verification.
Then, on the digital map on Find My iPhone, choose your disabled iPhone and hit Erase iPhone.
