How to Recover Data from an iPad With a Lockscreen

It’s unfortunate to lose all your data and can’t access it. There are a few ways to recover your data in such a situation. One way is to connect the device to iTunes and use its built-in tools. Another way is for an expert in data recovery to do it for you, but that can be expensive and time-consuming. The best way is to avoid losing the data in the first place by backing up your iPad regularly. Here’s how you can do ipad data recovery with a lock screen.

Why not use a lock screen

The lock screen is designed to protect your data on your device, but it doesn’t protect the data you have stored on the device. If you’re not backing up your iPad regularly, there is no way to recover that data if you lose it. It seems like an easy enough solution; make sure to back up your data and avoid using a lock screen. But some people turn off the lock screen to make it easier for their kids to use their iPads. We recommend not doing this. Yes, it will be easier for your child to use the iPad without the lock screen, but if they lose or damage it, they could lose all their data and any other information on the iPad.

Connect the iPad to iTunes

Start by connecting your device to a computer with iTunes installed. You can join the iPad using a USB cable or Wi-Fi. Once you’ve done that, click on “Backup”. A few moments later, you’ll be prompted with the option to restore data from an existing backup.

If you don’t see this option, make sure you’re on the correct screen in iTunes, where your backups are listed. You can then select the backup file you want to use and follow the prompts.

Restore from an iCloud backup

iCloud backups are an easy way to get your data back. If you don’t have any other backup, you can recover your data by restoring it from an iCloud backup. To do this, go to Settings, then scroll down and tap on iCloud, then select backup. The last iCloud backup should be chosen automatically, but if not, just select it. Now hit Restore From Backup, and it will do the rest of the work for you. You can also use iTunes to restore a backup you made with iTunes or iCloud.

You can also recover your iPad without restoring it from an iCloud backup if the device is not locked with a passcode (if it is locked with a passcode, skip this section). Connect your iPad to your computer and open up iTunes (or insert the recovery disk that came with the iPad). Once in iTunes make sure that your device is selected in iTunes > Summary > Backups > Restore Backup > Choose Backup File > Choose File.

Contact a data recovery expert.

The best way to recover your data from an iPad with a lock screen is to contact a data recovery expert. The professional will connect your device to their computer and run the necessary software to extract all of your files. This is usually done by restoring your data from iTunes or iCloud backups. If you don’t have any backups, the professional will use specialized programs to recover the data.


You can recover data from an iPad with a lock screen if you have the right tools and the skills to use them. But it’s important to remember that not all data can be recovered. And while some data can be recovered at a later date, the more time that elapses, the less likely it is that the data will be recovered. If you’re thinking about using a lock screen on your iPad, don’t. Instead, make sure that you back up your data to iCloud or iTunes before locking your device with a lock screen.
