Unlocking an iPhone without an Apple ID or Password

Unlocking an iPhone without an Apple ID or Password

There are a number of instances where you may be trying to get into an Apple device without knowing any of the information that you may need in order to do so. For example, if you have a family member or friend that is ill and you need to get in their phone for information, or if you have gotten hacked and all of the information for your Apple account was changed for whatever reason, you may need to get around that failsafe.

What are you supposed to do at that point? Here are some tips that you can use in order to unlock your iPhone without any of the Apple ID or password information that you would otherwise need.

  • Siri is always a great way to try and get around the issue at hand. You may be able to talk to her using her commands in order to get around the lock feature. Sometimes this works, but sometimes it will not. Try this before you do any of the other suggestions that we have for you here.
  • There are a number of websites out there that can help you to get past the Apple ID and password requirements that a locked phone usually has. Make sure that you do your research on the websites in question before you try them out so that you can make sure that they are reputable and that you aren’t going to end up with issues with any of your electronic devices. These basically help you to skip that step of unlocking the phone.
  • Hard resetting the phone is another way that you can get into the device without actually knowing the information related to the Apple ID. While this may not be appealing if you have a myriad of information on it, the option is there if you need it. This is also a good thing to know about if there is a software malfunction or someone else has given you the phone without wiping it. The way that you hard reset it is going to depend on the generation of iPhone that you have, so refer to the owner’s manual in order to get that information.

No matter which method that you use to unlock the iPhone, you want to make sure that reset all of the Apple ID information that is related to it once you get back in. This can save you a lot of hassle later on and prevent you from having to go through the processes above once again.

Are you still having issues with your iPhone? If you need the touch of a professional to figure out what steps you should take next, you can take a look at all of the service that we offer at We can help you to figure out what the problem may be so that you can get back into your phone and start using it again.

Samsung Races Ahead Of The Mobile Market With The Galaxy S7

Samsung Galaxy S7 MelbourneSamsung seemed primed to dominate the mobile markets in 2012, with the launch of their flagship S3 smartphone. The S3 kickstarted a healthy market run, with five successive quarters of profits.

Unfortunately, Samsung weren’t able to keep their winning streak going, as each successive generation of Samsung Galaxies failed to capture their customers’ imaginations, leading to seven quarters of reported losses.

This decline seems to be turning around, as the South Korean electronics manufacturer reported a profit of $5.8 billion for 2016’s first quarter – a 12% increase over last year’s first quarter. Samsung even managed to exceed analysts’ predictions, which is a great sign for the future of Samsung’s mobile department.

Samsung’s turnaround couldn’t have come at a better time, with the company reporting an operating profit of $3.89 trillion – nearly a 42% profit from 2015’s first quarter, and the highest for Samsung since 2014.

Although the manufacturer doesn’t release specific figures, it’s estimated that Samsung shipped 9.5 million Galaxy S7’s this quarter, surpassing the expectations of many financial speculators. Samsung’s chip division is also reportedly in the black, with a net profit of $2.63 trillion won, despite being a 10% decline from 2015’s first-quarter chip sales.

Samsung is predicting healthy sales for the second quarter, as well, due to the new Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.

Considering that most smartphone manufacturers have reported a decline in sales, this quarter, these figures suggest that Samsung is stealing back the hearts, minds, and imaginations of savvy smartphone lovers.

Physical Retailers Are Offering Premium Experiences, To Win Back Customers

Telstra Shops In Melbourne

Flagship Stores Like This Telstra Shop In Melbourne Are Rejuvenating Physical Retail Sales By Offering Boutique Retail Experiences

The Internet and mobile technology have offered us countless thrilling innovations in our daily lives. Need to find your keys? There’s an app for that. Want the latest and best in Asian cinema? You can have that as well.

The one thing that e-Commerce cannot offer us is a fun day on the town; individualized attention, advice, and recommendations in real time; or a sense of community.

In fact, we are starting to see a backlash against e-Commerce, as more and more people are conducting increasing amounts of their daily interactions through a screen. We’re all getting a bit burned out, and need a break. Which we’re starting to see, considering the surprising statistic that, despite years of flagging sales, 85% of consumers prefer to shop in physical retail stores, according to TimeTrade.

Boutique Experiences To Lead Retail Innovations

To take advantage of the changing tides, many stores are upping their game, unleashing brand-new top-of-the-line flagship stores, which will equal parts luxurious retail, clubhouse, and amusement park. Flagship stores, like Telstra’s flagship store in Melbourne, along with other retail leaders like Blackmores and Microsoft, are offering a crazy array of services, to get people in the doors. Free smoothies, in-store baristas, and free health assessments – absolutely anything goes, to make a storefront stand out from generic, shopping mall commerce.
The recent trend in upscale retail, like Telstra shops in Melbourne, will see an integration of “human, digital and tactile experiences,” leading to “next-gen” interactive retailing, according to Blackmores’ Acting Director David Fenlon.

Even Blackmores’ retail spa was inspired by Telstra’s flagship store in Melbourne, which is being billed as more of a laboratory and discovery hub than merely being a shop. Given how often electronics are updated, and how pricey each update can be, physical retail is a great chance to explore the latest products, software, and receive personalized recommendations and service.

You can’t do that online.
