The steps to use this device are very straightforward:

Step 1. Visit AppleiPhoneUnlock on your browse.

Step 2. Input the IMEI of your iPhone. To find the IMEI number of your device:

  • Tap on “i” icon on the screen from the activation screen, then you will get your IMEI number

Step 3. Choose one of the payments and order it, after this, you will receive a confirmation email.

After the above steps, what you should do is waiting for them to unlock your device, it usually takes 2-3 working days.

2. Bypass iCloud via DNS

You can bypass iCloud activation lock easily via DNS (Domain Name System), which was found by Ihor July. The main principle of it is to change the activation request path from the original Apple server to another server.

After changing DNS address via WiFi settings, your blocked iDevice will send a request to DNS Server, through which you’ll be able to surf the Internet, watch and shoot videos, take pictures, listen to music, etc.

Here is how to bypass iCloud via DNS:

Step 1. Starting the process by selecting Country and Language.

Step 2. Then you’ll be directed to “Choose a Wifi Network” interface. Tap on “i” icon beside your Wi-Fi network. If there is no “i”, you need to press the Home button and then select “More Wi-Fi Settings”

Step 3. Insert the custom DNS. Choose one of them according to your IP:

  • USA:
  • Europe:
  • Asia:
  • Rest of the world:

Note: your device should not be connected to this Network before changing the DNS, if connected, you need to forget this network.

Step 4. After step 3, tap on “Back” at the top left, then enter the password to connect to your Wifi.

Step 5. After connecting, your iPhone will be directed to the nested interface, which says “It may take a few minutes to activate your iPhone.” Wait for about 2 seconds and tap on “Back” at the top left.

Then you’ll see a pop-up screen. Scroll down and select “Menu” to start using your iPhone.

Cons of this method

  • There are a lot of limits and restrictions when you bypass iCloud successfully. Only a small part of functions are available to you, such as watching a video, browsing websites, playing games, chatting with friends, listening to music and radio.
  • What’s more, this is only a temporary solution.
