I need to break into my own iPad without wiping my data while – help?
I tried to update my iPad on Thursday afternoon to iOS 12. When it rebooted and took me through the setup, I pressed “skip” on all of the passcode screens, because I don’t use them on my tablet.
For some reason, it began asking for one anyway. I tried my iPhone passcode, as well as defaults like “000000” and “123456,” but nothing has worked, and I’ve sent it into disabled mode a few times now.
I don’t have any recent backups (I’ll be better about this now ?), and I can’t even get it to trust my laptop since I can’t get around the passcode. Find my iPhone is enabled, but it won’t connect to my WiFi.
“Restore” through iTunes and DFU modes haven’t gotten me anywhere so far either.
I have at least a year’s worth of illustration work and reference that I need to pull before I can reset it. Does anyone know how I could do that?
