How to Remove Activation Lock on iPhone Without Previous Owner

The iPhone 14 was just released, which means that the second-hand market is brimming with older iPhone models, much as it happens after every new Apple release.

Well, if you end up buying one of these iPhones and find out that it’s stuck in iCloud Activation Lock, you need to figure out a way to use the phone. Thankfully, there are ways to remove the activation lock without the previous owner’s help.

How to Remove iCloud Activation Lock Without the Previous Owner

Removing the iCloud Activation Lock so you can start using your new (for you) phone isn’t the easiest thing to do, but it’s thankfully possible.

Using DNS Bypass

This method can help you get control of your new phone in just a few minutes. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Power up your iPhone and choose the language and country from the menu.
  2. Tap on the Proceed button and enter the Wi-Fi settings page. You’ll find an i in a circle near the Wi-Fi tab, so click on that one.
  3. Enter a DNS server IP address to bypass the iCloud activation lock. You’ll have to choose one based on your location: USA: 104.154.51.7 Europe: 104.155.28.90 Asia: 104.155.220.58 Australia and Oceania: 35.189.47.23 South America: 35.199.88.219 Other areas: 78.100.17.60
  4. Go back to the previous screen, turn on the Wi-Fi, and choose your network. Enter your passcode.
  5. Do not click on the Next page option. Instead, press Back to return to the iCloud Bypass screen.
  6. Scroll all the way down to the Menu and set up your apps and everything else you need on your iPhone.

This method only works with devices running iOS 8 through 10. Plus, not everyone everywhere the world can use this method. Alternatively, you can use AnyUnlock to have a more streamlined experience.

Using AnyUnlock – iPhone Password Unlocker

Unlike the previous method, this one is a lot more user-friendly. While less tech-savvy users may have issues with the first method, AnyUnlock should raise no issues. Plus, this iCloud Activation lock bypass tool has a high success rate guaranteed, so you won’t be left struggling to figure out how to unlock your new phone.

Here’s what you have to do to make this one work:

  1. Get AnyUnlock for your Windows or Mac computer. Install the tool and check out all the options.
  2. Then, you need to plug in your iPhone and connect it to your computer.
  3. Choose the Bypass iCloud Activation Lock from the grid.
  4. Click on Start Now to kick off the unlocking process.
  5. Done! Any traces of the previous owner have been removed.

The whole process feels like it takes a blink of an eye, which is a lot easier than any other DIY solution you may use. Plus, it’s a lot faster than contacting Apple support, reaching out to the seller again, and so on.

We do have to mention that AnyUnlock is a complete iOS unlocking toolkit and it works to resolve so many other issues. For instance, it can unlock the screen passcode, Apple ID, and bypass the mobile device management.

The tool can also remove SIM lock, the iTunes backup encryption, and you can even unlock the phone without a screen time passcode.

Easy Way to Unlock Your New iPhone

Unlocking your new iPhone can be a job that takes a few minutes if you use the right tools like the iCloud Activation lock bypass tool we’ve shown you here resulting in fewer headaches.
