Right, before I start this is a genuine request for help. I see how it can draw parallels to somebody who has stolen an iPad but it’s not the case here. I think I’ve been around here long enough for people to be able to judge my character.
I have just inherited a 6th Gen iPad from a relative who recently passed away. It was linked to an Apple ID but I have no idea of the password. It was setup by another relative who also is no longer with us.
I don’t use Apple devices so after reading I established the iPad could be reset. I connected it to my computer which has iTunes installed and held the home button down. This put it into restore mode and iTunes downloaded and installed new software.
However upon turning on the iPad not says it’s locked to the previous owner and I cannot get passed the activation lock. My intention is to enter my own Apple ID (once i get my password reset).
Is there any way to bypass this or do a complete restore that forgets the previous Apple ID login?
Thanks in advance.
