Erase Your Locked Device Without a Computer in iOS 15.2

As long as you are connected to a mobile network or Wi-Fi

A new feature added in iOS 15.2 lets you reset your iPhone or iPad from the lock screen without a computer, as long as you still have an internet connection.

iOS 15.2 is coming, and it brings several new features, including one that lets you wipe and reset locked iOS devices right from the lock screen. Previously, resetting a locked iPhone or iPad required putting it in DFU mode and connecting it to a Mac or PC to complete the process. Now you can reset your device as soon as it is connected to a cellular or Wi-Fi network.

According to Apple, you must have iOS 15.2 installed, be connected to the Internet, and have (or remember) your Apple ID and password.

After several unsuccessful attempts to unlock the phone, a “Security Lock” will appear on the screen, prompting you to try again later. It will also display an option to “Erase iPhone” or “Erase iPad” depending on the device you’re using, which you can tap to start the process.

It is important to remember that if you are not connected to the Internet or cannot enter the correct Apple ID information, you will not be able to reset your iOS device using this method. In this case, you need to use the more classic reboot method to enter DFU mode and connect to the computer.

If you haven’t already, iOS 15.2 is now available for download on compatible iOS devices.
