Restore Your iPad Or iPhone Using Recovery Mode

The best way to go about for an iPad or an iPhone, if you have forgotten the passcode or password is to restore it and restart it. This will remove or erase all of your personal information from the device and it will be reset to factory settings. However, if you have a backup for your personal data, it can be restored and it will be as good as new.

In order to restore the iPad or iPhone from iTunes, a passcode will be required. But you can restore it without a passcode using the Recovery Mode. This will wash out your iPad or iPhone completely and install the latest version of iOS, which at the moment is iOS 10.
