locked out of iPad

I haven’t use my iPad in 2 or 3 days, so I couldn’t use touch id to open it, I have to put in my pin, which I forgot.

 

I tried like 10 times what I thought it was, but now it is disabled for an hour.

 

So how do I reset it?

 

I tried that DFU mode, I tried restore and update. But it said, itunes could not connect to this ipad because it is locked with a passcode.

 

Dumbass I know that. Why are they telling me something that I already know.

 

The I put it in recovery mode. It said, the ipad could not be updated because the firmware file is not compatible.

 

Why do Apple even ask you for your passcode? The whole point of touch id is so that we don’t have to use a password.

 

With all of our pin codes that we have to remember, credit cards, phones, tablets, computers.

What’s more secure then your own fingerprint? A 4-6 digit code?

It's like if you don't use if for 1 or 2 days, they require your passcode in order for you to use your fingerprints again.

Fn Apple. I did the restore with the iTunes app from the Windows store. That didn't work.

I uninstalled that, and downloaded it for Apple's site. Redid the restore. And that worked.

Maybe because the Windows app version doesn't have an option to check for updates.

Same as rebooting your iPhone tho. I mean one side is having a sort of 2FA security but other side is being bloody annoying ??

It's 1 thing to have good security., It's annoying to have it get in the way.

Imagine if a robber got his hands on your iPad. Do you want it to be easy for him to break into your photos and shit. No, right?

 

So don't blame Apple for your stupidity, remember your passcode.

Good security will always "get in the way." It's supposed to make it harder to access the device in order to protect your information...

and you have a passcode as a backup, that's the point. For example, say the fingerprint reader stops working, which is not all that hard to imagine, how are you going to unlock your device? and even if you sent it off to have the fingerprint reader replaced, you'll still be in the same situation since the new sensor wont have your fingerprint and you'll still need to unlock the device with your passcode and set up touch ID again

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.

And if you have an accident and that disfigures the pattern on your finger? Do you want to be locked out of your iPad? Or the finger print reader stops working?

You still don't understand. I did not say anything about not having a backup.

I am talking about needing to use your password when it has your fingerprint and the finger print reader works just fine.
