Let’s assume that you have already forgotten your iPhone passcode. This does happen to a large number of people. It is understandable though. You have to keep track of a large number of passwords. You have your social media accounts’ passwords, email accounts’ passwords, and passwords for your computer and mobile devices. Forgetting some of these passwords is a possibility.
If you are on an old iOS version, it is possible to unlock your iOS device quite easily without the need for a password using an emergency screen lock trick. In this article, we will be showing you how to unlock iPhone with an emergency call screen. However, does this trick really work?

How to Unlock iPhone with Emergency Call Screen (Only for iOS 6.1)
Does Emergency Call Work to Unlock iPhone?
The answer to this question will vary depending on the iOS version running on the iPhone you need to unlock. If you are on an old iOS version, that is, iOS 6.1, the emergency call trick can help unlock your iPhone. This is a loophole Apple discovered and decided to fix in its later iOS versions. Therefore, if you have a more recent iOS version, the trick might not work for you. But, don’t worry. Even if the trick fails to work for you, we will show you another easier and better way to unlock your iOS device without the need for the emergency call trick.
Note: Even though the trick below may work to unlock an iPhone running on iOS 6.1, it will not give you complete access to your iPhone. The trick will only allow you to gain access to the photos, phone dialer, and the contacts. If you try to access other features of your iPhone, you will be taken back to the screen lock.
Steps to Unlock iPhone with Emergency Call Screen
Step 1: Slide to unlock your iPhone. Type any passcode. The passcode has to be wrong for this trick to work.
Step 2: Cancel the iPhone passcode screen. Again, slide to unlock and instead of entering another passcode, tap the Emergency Call button. Hold the Power button until the turn off slider appears. Tap Cancel. You should notice that the taskbar available at the top of the iPhone screen changes to light blue.
Step 3: Dial 112 (an emergency number like 911), click the emergency call button and immediately after, click the Cancel button. Press the power button and release it immediately to turn off your iPhone screen.
Step 4: After the screen is off, press either the Home or the Power button to turn it on. Slide to unlock again. Hold the power button for approximately 3 seconds and then click the Emergency Call before the turn off Slider appears on the screen. This should unlock the iPhone.
How to Successfully Unlock iPhone (For All iOS Versions)
Immediately after learning about the loophole in iOS 6.1, Apple did release an Update, iOS 6.1.2, which fixed the issue. This means that the trick is no longer applicable in most of the iOS devices. However, this does not mean that unlocking your iPhone is impossible if you cannot remember your passcode.
