If you have forgotten your passcode, or if a message says that your device is disabled, follow these steps to remove your passcode.
1. If you can’t remember your passcode, you’ll need to erase your iPad, which deletes all of your data and settings, including the passcode. If you’ve never synced with iTunes or set up Find My iPad, you’ll need to use recovery mode to restore your device. This will erase the device and its passcode.
2. After you’ve erased the device, you can restore from a backup using iTunes or iCloud. If you don’t have a backup and you’re using iOS 11 or later, make sure that Find My iPhone is turned on in Settings > [your name] > iCloud. You might be able to use recovery mode to restore your device without losing any data.
3. If you can’t remember your passcode, or if someone guessing it too many times has disabled it, you won’t be able to use this method to remove the passcode. In this situation, contact Apple Support for help.”
