Step 4 Click “File,” followed by “Devices” and the “Restore from Back up” option. Choose a backup with a date prior to the addition of the password.
Restore Using iTunes if No Backup Exists
Step 1 Hold down the iPhone’s “Sleep/Wake” button until the slider appears on the screen, and then use your fingertip to slide the slider to turn off the device.
Step 2 Connect the iPhone’s USB cable to an available port on your computer. Don’t connect the iPhone at this time.
Step 3 Hold down the iPhone’s “Home” button as you connect the other end of the USB cable to the device. The iPhone will turn on automatically.
Step 4 Continue to hold down the “Home” button until the “Connect to iTunes” message appears on the screen. Release the “Home” button. A message appears stating that iTunes detects the iPhone as a device in recovery mode.
Step 5 Click “OK” and then click “Restore” to start the restore process. This will erase all data currently stored on the device.
