Thank you for the update.
It appears that I was incorrectly assuming that the password ***** were having problems with was the Apple ID. From your last reply to me, you say that you cannot get access to your iPads. That is a different story.
The iPad device password ***** ***** a passcode by Apple. And it is not the same as your Apple ID password. I know it is confusing. It was the same for me too when I first started using Apple products. I will explain why there are multiple passwords/passcodes.
The passcode for an iPad is either a 4 digit or 6 digit numeric number (depending on your security settings). This is the passcode you enter when the device is powered on and lets you use the device. This passcode protects the physical device (your iPad), so that if you leave the device unattended, or if the device is ever lost or stolen, your data is protected from unlawful access. The device will be disabled if an incorrect passcode is entered 6 times.
The Apple ID password ***** the other hand is a password ***** protects your Apple customer account. This is the account that identifies you as the owner of the account as well as any devices tied to the Apple ID. It also allows you to access Apple products and services including iCloud storage, and the iTunes store, also helps you to locate lost devices, etc.
Because the passcode to unlock the device is stored on the device, it cannot be retrieved from the device itself.
The process to get access to the device without knowing the passcode will require a complete wipe of the device including any data you have on it
The reason for this is because the device will be reset to a fresh factory state. The same state the iPad is in when you purchase it, and first turn it on.
Now, if there was at least one backup done of the device prior, a restore from that backup can be made after the device is reset.
If you would like to perform the factory reset, I will be happy to provide the steps to do that. Please let me know. Again any data you have will be gone after the reset.
