How to Unlock Locked iPhone or iPad on iCloud

1. DoctorUnlock

It is a site specialized in unlocking iPhones locked on iCloud. First, log in to the DoctorUnlock. Once you have accessed the site you will see this screen:

In the drop-down menu at the top select the model of your iPhone and below enter the IMEI of the device. If the iPhone once turned on shows the iCloud activation screen, by clicking on the icon "i"A screen should open with the indications of the IMEI code ...

Then click on UNLOCK NOW and a page will open where you will have to enter your contact details (your email) in order to receive information on the unblocking process. By clicking on "Continue”You will go to the payment page.


Once your iCloud account has been unlocked you will receive a confirmation email, usually within 3 business days.

2. 4MeKey (software per Windows e Mac)

One software (perhaps the only one) that can remove and bypass iCloud activation lock on iPhone / iPad is 4MeKey. With this program the "jailbreak" of the iOS device is first done and then the removal of the activation lock. With this program, you can remove your old Apple ID and then use your own. The only thing to know is that the call and data network function may no longer work after unlocking. But if you have a device blocked on activation and still want to be able to use it in other ways, this program is for you.

After installation and startup you will see this initial interface with the main functions of the program. You will be able to choose both the function that removes the iCloud activation lock and the function that can disable Find My iPhone without a password.

Click on the button START and then follow all the instructions until the final unlocking of the device.

The complete guide (in Italian) of the program is present on this page

3. Unlockbase

Besides the service there is also the UnlockBase service which could help you bypass the iCloud lock. Here's how it works

1: Go to and specify your iPhone model and IMEI in the relevant box. Then click on the green “Unlock Now” button.

2: In the next window you will have to proceed with the payment of the service and the insertion of your data

3: Once the payment has been made, you will receive a confirmation email which will also contain information on the waiting times for unlocking your iPhone. This is usually done within a week.


Go to the site and enter the IMEI of your iCloud locked or network locked iPhone or iPad. With this online service, you can get the device unlocked or get valuable information on how to locate the previous owner of the device and who has locked it on iCloud.

If you don't know your iPhone / iPad IMEI read our article on all ways to find iPhone / iPad IMEI. However, one of the easiest and fastest ways is to go to the iPhone in Settings -> General -> Info -> IMEI

On the website page, enter the IMEI and click START

In the next window you will have to enter the model of your iPhone and the possible network on which your iOS device is locked, or select "No network Lock" if the only lock present is the one on iCloud

Click on NEXT and select the “Yes I can't deactivate iCloud” option below if your iPhone requires you to enter an Apple ID you don't know and is therefore locked to iCloud.

By clicking on NEXT you will be asked to enter your email address and you will receive instructions via email on how (if possible) to unlock the device.

ipad 2 (given away after opening a bank account 10 years ago) with icloud block and forgotten email and user id and pssw… do I throw it against an applestore showcase? or does anyone suggest how to get it back?
thank you

  • hello, I bought an iPhone 6 on ebay, the old owner no longer remembers the psw and the apple id, the mobile phone is regular through imei, the old owner no longer has, having bought it 7 years ago, the purchase invoice, how can i get it unlocked?

  • I got this Iphone 8 from my cousin who, in turn, found it and then gave it to me, telling me, in fact, that it was blocked ... I turned it on and, in fact, after the first synchro phases it appeared to me this page with the words "Activation Lock" with under Apple ID: and passwuord:. Naively, I thought it was enough to change that by entering my credentials and, by mistake, I blocked the ICloud account.
    Now, my question is: Is it possible, in addition to making me unlock the device from the iCloud account of the old owner, to be able to reactivate the iCloud profile that I blocked, by mistake, always using these paid sites that you say they are effective and efficient, as well as reliable? Because they are RELIABLE, right ???
    Hoping to get an answer shortly, I salute you!

    • No, the former owner certainly reported the loss of the device and had it blocked by Apple. In these cases it is IMPOSSIBLE to unlock.

    Thank you

  • Just search on ebay .. There are those who do it. I had my ipad unlocked and it was as good as new.

    • Carlo can you also tell me privately where to look I have an iphone 5 connected to another apple account that I would like to recover in some way even to use it as a simple ipod would be fine for me

    • hi, I bought an IPHONE6 from spain through Ebay, complete with regular payment and invoice, only it is blocked by Icloud. I wrote to whoever sold it to me, who correctly wrote it in the ad, but it escaped me. He replied that he too picked up his cell phone in exchange for a new one in his shop. The cell phone was tested and worked, but he too did not remember to have it unlocked by the customer he picked it up from. Untraceable customer because he returned to Mexico. I tried to have it unblocked on the internet, but I found scammers twice, luckily in one case I didn't pay them, in the other case I was able to recover them with pay pal. another asked me for 300 euros, madness. The cell phone is not stolen, I checked that. So I wanted to ask you if you have an honest name, since you managed to get your IPad unlocked. If you need my data privately, I have no problems. I think you will see my email from this site, otherwise you can ask me in response.
      Greetings and thanks in any case. Nicola

      • If the Find My iPhone service is active besides iCloud, there is no way to unlock the device.
        Avoid ebay and classifieds sites of all kinds which are the primary source of wealth for scammers and dishonest who promise even the impossible.

    • Hi can you tell me if there is a method when I turn it on my iPad stops on Apple id and passw who sold it to me no longer remembers

  • Manjot are in the same situation as you
    I think changing the mii should unlock it but I have no idea how to do it

  • Hi I recently bought a used iphone 4s but when I turn it on and go to the part where I have to put the apple id and the password it tells me that it is already connected to another apple id and I also tried to do a hard reset with itunes but nothing changes and with these methods can you go?

  • hi i have an iphone 6 that they sold me .. i did not know about icloud since i have always had android .. when i turn it on, i connect to a wifi network and it asks me for the apple id and password .. what should i do? to unlock?

    • Unfortunately not ... difficult especially if Find My iPhone is active (it means that the phone has been found or stolen) ...

  • but if you want to use an apple device of a deceased loved one who has activated find my iphone, can you unlock icloud? if you go to an apple center with a death certificate and some document attesting to the close relationship or who knows what else?

    • try to go to an apple center ... but I don't think it's feasible as what ...

      • Thank you for the answer, I will go with a death certificate and a document from the land registry of the family status to the apple center of my city and let's see what they tell me, however I can understand the privacy they want to protect, but not be able to use the restored iPhone and therefore with all data deleted without violating the "privacy" of a deceased loved one it seems to me really absurd….

  • Hello but if the phone is reset in dfu, does the program work anyway?
    Thank you.

    • Yes, it should work anyway

    • Hi is it possible to unlock the telephone part today?

  • Hello
    a question: but have you tested them or do you have real testimonials that you have experienced that they really work?

    thank you

    • The solutions indicated are almost all working (I used SafeEraser)… unless Find My iPhone is activated on the device. In the latter case there is no way to unblock icloud.

      • only with SafeEraser can not be unlocked in case it is active find my iPhone I have with everyone

      • with all…
        If Find My iPhone is active, there is no solution: the device is unusable unless iCloud data is recovered

      • i have an ipad air 2 stuck with icloud

      • o un iPhone 8 block

    • how can i unlock my iphon 5
