The iPhone is packed full of lots of little features to make things easier for users. One such feature is the restrictions passcode. It enables parents to manage which features, apps, and content their kids can and can't access on the iPhone or iPad.

The problem is that it gets in the way sometimes, especially if you forget it. So, is there an iPhone restrictions passcode default you can rely on? The short answer is no, but there are options if you forget or want to change your passcode.

How to Remove the Restrictions Passcode without Knowing Password?

Restore Your iPhone via iTunes - You'll Lose All of your Data

A factory reset of an iPhone will remove all of the data and settings from your device, re-installing the latest version of the iOS. Start out by ensuring that you've already got the latest version of iTunes on your computer ready.

Step 1. Open up iTunes on your computer and connect your device to the computer with the syncing cable. Choose the device when it appears on the screen in iTunes to open up the settings and move on to the next step.

Step 2. Click on "Restore iPhone" beside "Check for Update".


Step 3. Then confirm the restoration. iTunes will then completely erase the device, including the iPhone restrictions default password, and install the latest operating system software. You can then set up the device as new and get back to using your phone without delay.



After the above steps, if you want to restore your iPhone from a backup, you must ensure there is no passcode in the backup, or you'll find the passcode is still there after restoring from that backup.
