2. Can You Recover Data from a Disabled iPad Directly?

It's a common question asked by many iOS users who have a disabled iPhone or iPad. However, the answer is NO! You cannot recover data from a permanently disabled or locked iPad directly. You are required to use iTunes or iCloud backup to do that, but that will work only if you have created a backup before your iPad gets locked up.

When it comes to restore iPad, we recommend iMyFone D-Port Pro to you. It's a unique backup and restore software which can backup or restore your data selectively as well as completely with just several clicks. The software is compatible with iOS 11.2 completely, and also supports new iOS devices such as iPhone X and iPhone 8 too. It enables you to restore data from iTunes, iCloud or iMyFone backup selectively. For example, you can restore only WeChat, WhatsApp, Messages to your iPad from iCloud or iTunes backup. More data types will be supported in the next version.
