The only way to bypass the passcode screen is to perform a factory reset on the iPad which will wipe the data. If you have a recent backup, you can restore from that backup and it will recover your data.

To perform the reset:

  1. From another device, go to
  2. If prompted, sign in with your Apple ID.
  3. Click All Devices at the top of your browser window.
  4. Select the device you want to erase.
  5. Click Erase [device] to erase your device and its passcode.
