Frequently Asked Questions of iMyFone iBypasser

So far iBypasser is only compatible with macOS 10.13 to 10.15. Some users installed macOS on a Windows computer to use the software but came across unknown errors. So you are recommended to borrow a macOS computer if you don’t have one. We are working hard on developing the Windows version.
Apple Activation Lock is designed to prevent anyone else using the device if it's ever lost or stolen. Nobody but the original iCloud account owner can unlock the Activation Lock with correct Apple ID and password.
