    Default ipad password

    I've an iPad but the password is not known (owner deceased).

    Is there any way of getting around this, or is the thing just a paperweight?

    I think you can do a factory reset or similar via iTunes.

    Usual disclaimer: Info comes from listening to feckless art students are their problems. They are all better with Apple stuff, actually computers in general, than I am.

    edit. Just noticed the typo, 'are' should read 'and'. Mind you maybe art students are their own problems?

    Think you can do it through a reset after it's in recovery mode (or something!!)

    You can easily reset it and lose all of the data on it. A bit trickier but you can root the device and recover all data (if it is irreplaceable).

    Is there an app for that?

    Looks like there is.

    Links to a google search with a long enough url to label every atom in the universe, twice.
