Customer Question
I have an iPhone...

I have an iPhone 6plus that I gave my son, he changed his passcode and now he can’t remember the passcode and Siri not Touch ID works on his phone, how can I get into it to change his passcode the iCloud information is all in my name being as he’s only 14 years old

Technician's Assistant: When did you last change your password ***** Apple ID?

About two months ago and it’s ONLY the passcode to unlock screen

Technician's Assistant: Did you try resetting through Apple's online account reset tool?

I don’t know how to do that but some help would be very much appreciated

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

No thanks I appreciate it

He’s a teenager of course and doesn’t want “mommy” checking his phone so about two months ago he changed the passcode and doesn’t remember what he changed it to! The Touch ID nor is Siri activated on his phone prior to the lockout
Mac Support Specialist: Kris R, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 4 months ago

Do you have a computer it can be connected too?

If so we can reset it to factory and remove the pin

Can you sign into icloud.com on a web-browser, If you see them all on there, it means they are saved to the cloud and will not be lost if we reset the phone

Is there anyway I can reset the phone without going through iCloud? The reason I’m asking when I tried that technique last night, I signed in with my iPad and also tried my phone and it’s resetting the iCloud info on those two devices, although my sons phone is under another iCloud account I have with my info, it’s resetting it on my primary devices and I don’t want that
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I have an older iPhone that was his with the iCloud info on it so everything is already backed up to it I just need to change this passcode to get into his phone

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
