All about Activation Lock iPads and iPhones!!!

Here’s how it works

Each time an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple Watch, or Mac computer that has an Apple T2 security chip or Apple silicon is activated or recovered, the device contacts Apple to check whether Activation Lock is turned on. 

Activation Lock turns on automatically when you set up Find My / After it’s turned on, Apple securely stores your Apple ID on its activation servers and links it to your device. Your Apple ID password or device passcode is required before anyone can turn off Find My, erase your device, or reactivate and use your device. 

How to remove iCloud activation Lock

Bypass the Activation Lock via iCloud

iPhone or iPad Activation Lock removal can also be done via iCloud. This is handy when the owner of an iPhone isn’t with you and can’t log into their own iCloud account. You’ll still need their Apple ID credentials, and they may need to verify the account activity via a separate device, but iCloud is a great option for remotely removing a device from a user’s Apple ID account. Here’s how to get Activation Lock off iPhone or iPad using iCloud: 

  1. Visit iosfiles.com using any browser
  2. Sign in (Note: At this point, the user may need to verify your login is legitimate via an iPhone or iPad associated with their account)
  3. Select your service you need icon (Note: This is the “Find My” service; Apple hasn’t updated the name on iCloud.com, but it works for all Apple devices)
  4. On the map, select the blue dot associated with the iPhone or iPad you need to log into
  5. Select “Erase [device]”
  6. Choose “Remove from account.”
