iMyFone LockWiper Review

Setting permissions on your iPhone can prevent unauthorized use and protect your privacy, even if the device is stolen or lost. However, you may be unable to access your iPhone if you forget the screen password or Apple ID, repeatedly enter the incorrect password, or discover that it is locked by the iCloud activation lock.

So, how can you get your iPhone unlocked without a passcode? How can you get rid of the iCloud activation lock on your iOS device? You can use a specialized iOS unlocking tool to help you out. To save you time, I tested several iOS unlockers and chose one that performed well, namely iMyFone LockWiper. Read this review to learn about the features, strengths and weaknesses, and price of the iMyFone LockWiper.

Features

Some amazing features have been introduced in iMyFone LockWiper. The following are the main features of this iPhone unlocker.

Reset Screen Passcode and ScreenTime Passcode

iMyFone LockWiper can also remove your phone’s screen passcode as well as the screentime passcode. When you remove the six-digit screen passcode, your phone’s data is erased. The four-digit ScreenTime Passcode, on the other hand, can be removed without affecting any data.

Unlock/Change Apple ID without Password

You can use this function to delete an existing Apple ID on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. It does not necessitate the use of a password. However, any data associated with that Apple ID will be lost. As a result, until you sign in again with that Apple ID, you will be unable to track your device. Another advantage is that you can create a new Apple ID after uninstalling the old one.

How to Use iMyFone LockWiper

iMyFone LockWiper is handy in a variety of circumstances. If you’ve repeatedly input incorrect passcodes and the device is now locked, just follow these steps with LockWiper to unlock the device.

Step 1: Install LockWiper on your computer, then run the application by double-clicking on the app’s icon.

Performance: My Personal Experience

I have tested this software to have a better understanding of it. In this section of the iMyFone LockWiper review, I’ll detail my performance and provide my thoughts on it so that you can make an informed decision.

iMyFone LockWiper performed admirably in my tests. It worked flawlessly to unlock my iPhone. The speed was excellent as well. However, there are a few requirements that must be met prior to unlocking your iPhone. Before removing or unlocking the passcode, make sure Find My Phone is turned off. The screentime passcode is the only thing that can be deleted without causing data loss. However, iMyFone LockWiper will delete your phone if you wish to remove Apple ID, MDM, or Screen Lock. You will only be able to recover your data if you have a pre-existing backup of your iPhone.

In some instances, the unlocking procedure can be dangerous if you do not adhere to LockWiper’s instructions. However, it is very easy to use and you should not have unexpected data loss as long as you follow the on-screen prompts.

If you have a damaged screen, MDM limited, or locked iPhone, iPad, or iPod, iMyFone LockWiper is an excellent solution and the results are excellent.

Pros

LockWiper makes it simple to erase the Apple ID and unlock the screen passcode without needing a password. Its interface is intuitive and clear, allowing anyone to rapidly learn it. It supports a variety of password types, including 4- or 6-digit passcodes, as well as Face ID and Touch ID.

Cons

The disadvantage is that after conducting the unlock process, all data on your device will be wiped. And your iOS device will be automatically updated to the current version. Please keep in mind that you must buy the software in order to access all of the software’s capabilities.
