IMyFone Lockwiper Review – Only the users of the iPhone or other Apple devices will know the pain of losing or forgetting their Apple ID or its password. Because without an Apple ID, you cannot download an app from the apple store or access the iCloud. You need an Apple ID password to perform most of the operations on an iDevice.

The software can also help you in bypassing the lock screen password or pattern if in case you forgot it. So with the software installed, you no longer need to approach an Apple service center for removing your Apple ID, bypassing locked screen and other iPhone repairs as you can do each of these operations by yourself.

Similar to iMyFone TunesMate, the installation of iMyFone LockWiper is also a simple process which can be completed with just a click. Once the installation starts, it takes only a few seconds to complete after which you can start using the software to remove your Apple ID.

It also offers tools that let you service your Apple devices by yourself. Let’s take a brief look at some of the features and benefits the software offers its users.

How simple is the user interface of the software?
The user interface of iMyFone LockWiper is very simple, clean and neat and can be used by any iDevice users with ease. As soon as you open the application on your desktop, you will be seeing two options on your screen. One is for unlocking your Apple ID and the other is for unlocking screen passcode.
Now, based on your scenario, select the appropriate option to proceed further. If you forgot your Apple ID, then select the Unlock Apple ID option to remove the Apple ID and create a new one.
If your iPhone has a lock screen and you have forgotten the password, passcode, lock pattern or if your screen is damaged, then select the Unlock Screen Passcode option to bypass the lock screen and log in to your iPhone.
Unlock Apple ID:
So using this option, you can remove the Apple ID for which you forgot the password. Please remember Apple ID is very important for performing almost any operation on your iDevice. So if you cannot use it, then there is no other option than to remove it.
Now connect your iDevice to your PC and unlock your iPhone and trust the device to which your iPhone is connected by tapping the trust button on your iPhone.
Please remember you cannot run the software on those devices that run on iOS11.4 and above and ‘Find My iPhone’ app is enabled.
Now you can start the unlocking process by clicking the ‘Start to Unlock’ button. It will take some few seconds for the software to successfully unlock the Apple ID on your iDevice. Once your Apple ID is unlocked, the Apple device restarts automatically.
Once the process completes, the Apple ID will now be removed from your iDevice and you can create a new one to continue enjoying your iDevice to the fullest.
Remember all your files will be deleted completely at the end of the unlock process. So try to back up your files using an iMyFone Backup software before proceeding with the unlock process
Unlock Screen Passcode:
Unlike the other option where the entire process is completed in a few steps, here you need to perform some additional steps to clean the lock code and browse your iPhone.
So after selecting this option, now click on the ‘Start’ button to start removing the lock screen on your iPhone. The next step is to plug your iDevice on to the computer and see if the software can recognize your iDevice.
Now to remove the lock screen, you need to download the iOS firmware package before proceeding further. So, select the target location where you like to save the firmware and select the iOS version for which you are downloading the firmware.
The firmware is a large file may be 2 to 3 GB depending on your iOS version. So it may take time depending on your internet connection speed.
Once the firmware is downloaded, you need to extract the firmware to start unlocking your iDevice lock screen.
Now, after the firmware is extracted, click the start unlock button and enter the confirmation code on your screen to confirm the unlocking process and start the process.
Please remember while unlocking your iDevice, all the data and settings present on your iPhone will be erased completely.
So, once the process completes, your iDevice restarts automatically and you can now start using your iDevice and create a new lock screen.
One important suggestion that we like to give our users is that try unlocking the Apple ID or bypass the lock screen on your iPhone after buying the software. Because you cannot unlock the Apple ID and lock screen using the trial version and you will be asked to buy and register an account at the final step of the process.
Help and Support:
For any help on how to use the software, access their user guide or FAQ section that can be found under the menu option that is present at the top right corner of the screen. For reporting any problem on your software or to contact their support team, then click on the chat button or the support center option respectively.
What is the word of mouth for the software?
The reviews for iMyFone LockWiper are mostly good though most of the reviews pointed out certain issues on the software. The common concern which most of the reviewers bothered about is the wiping out of all data files in the process of unlocking. Other than that, there were no major setbacks for the software.
On the other hand, I could find only a few user comments and they were not so encouraging. They feel let down after using the software as it asks you to register for an account in the final step of unlocking your device which even crashed the device for some users. So we recommend you to first buy the software and then try unlocking your Apple ID or the device lock screen.
Please find below some of the positive and negative testimonials that I came across on the internet.
“Ultimately, LockWiper is a brilliant tool that will drag you out of some tricky situations. Its ease of use, rapidity, and security are some of the standout features, but it's a well-designed piece of software all around.” – Tech Times
“All in all, if you have no other way of using your locked iPhone, don't care about the data that's stuck on the device and already have the latest iOS version (and prefer it that way), you can consider using iMyFone LockWiper. It won't magically make the passcode disappear, but will make your iPhone usable again.” – Softpedia
What are the limitations of the trial version of the software?
There is a free version of iMyFone LockWiper available for the users to try it first before buying the software. But there are limitations in the trial version which restricts you from unlocking the Apple ID or the lock screen without buying the software. You can just make a check if your device is getting detected by using the trial version.
