Release Notes on November 18th, 2016

Updated on September 30th, 2020

iOS activation lock management and bypass

Activation lock for iOS was introduced in iOS 7 to provide additional security when a device is lost or stolen by preventing anyone from using the device without knowing the Apple ID and password of the end-user. When a user turns on Find My iPhone, activation lock is automatically enabled and the device prompts the user to login with his/her Apple ID and password during factory reset.

When thinking about Supervised corporate devices, this can become a problem if the device must be reset or allocated to a new user or an employee leaves the company. Activation Lock Bypass feature of Miradore can be used to circumvent such problems.

In short, activation lock bypass code is automatically queried from Supervised iOS devices and shown in Miradore console. Administrators can use this bypass code to disable activation lock when needed.
