2 Never Set up An iPad Passcode? Try This

If your iPad requires a passcode after you have updated it but you have not previously set it up before, the simplest way to go by this is to trying the default passcodes.

  • If it asks for 4-digit passcode, you can try “1234” or “0000”.
  • If it asks for 6-digit passcode, try “123456” or “000000”.

Apparently, the restriction code is set by the latest iOS 12 update. If the default passcode works, be sure you reset your iPad passcode to something different and take note of the new passcode. Or you can just force reboot it.
