For a long time, buying a second-hand iOS-powered device meant walking into unknown territory because of the rather weird locks Apple puts on their devices when it comes to tying them to an Apple account. If for some reason you’ve forgotten the password for that Apple account or the seller on eBay, Craigslist, and such was malicious and didn’t provide these details (and didn’t remove their account from the device they sold), you might be in a rather tight situation as the device becomes unusable.
The same thing happens with the Passcode, Face ID, and Touch ID. While these technologies are very useful for protecting your device’s private data, they can be a pain on a second-hand device if the seller forgets to remove them (or doesn’t want to). 4uKey is a great solution when this happens. If Find My (formerly Find My iPhone and Find My iPad) is not enabled, you’re lucky! You can use 4uKey to bypass the old account and to remove the Touch ID, Face ID, and Passcode from the device you bought.
4uKey is also safe for the seller because the old data is removed automatically in the process of removing the Passcode, Face ID, and Touch ID, and therefore the buyer gets a factory reset device with no seller data on it. 4uKey can remove the Apple ID from the device if the device has iOS 11.4 or lower, and it can remove the Touch ID, Face ID, and Passcode on iOS 10, iOS 11, iOS 12, and even iOS 13 up to iOS 13.7. iOS 14 Beta is also supported.
The tool is rather easy to install and it is available for macOS, as well as Windows ranging from Windows XP and going all the way up to the latest Windows 10. Amongst other features, the 4uKey tool can bypass MDM Authentication Screen with one click, fix Disabled iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch without the need of iTunes or iCloud, and it is fully compatible with the latest iOS devices including the iPhone XS, XR, XS Max, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone SE 2020.
The program is rather easy to use for beginners and for the people who aren’t exactly tech-savvy. It installs like any other software on both macOS and Windows, and the interface is a clean one with only a few rather well-labeled buttons that are self-explanatory. Please consult the video down below to see how you can use 4uKey on your device.
