How to unlock your iPhone without a passcode or face ID

If you’ve accidentally locked your iPhone and you don’t have the passcode or face ID, don’t worry. In this article, you’ll get to know how to unlock your iPhone without a passcode or face ID with ease.

Passcode or Face ID ensures that your iPhone is safe and secure. However, you may forget your passcode or the device may fail to detect your face at times, yet you need to access your iPhone with either of these methods.

  4. Press on “Run custom gesture” and then type on the screen where the passcode would be. For instance, if your password was “1111”, you’ll have to press the top left 4x
  5. Once completed, you should press save and give this a go
  6. Head over to the lock screen and then use your phrase for running the gesture
