    So i got an iphone 6s and its activation locked. I can't get in touch with the owner and Apple won't help. Can I smash it now or is there something for this?

    Nothing you can do or apple can do. iCloud locks are extremely hard to bypass, and they're encrypted in the iBoot partition, which is locked away.
    You would need a iBoot exploit to bypass it, and there are none for 64 bit devices :/
    I would say instead of smashing it, you use it for parts, or maybe (I don't know if it's possible) swap the flash memory out?
    I don't know where to buy one but that's speculation of how to restore that iPhone.
    Although, the iCloud lock could also be a server thing, which is near impossible to bypass :/

    That is not full usage though. There i no way I can have full usage of that phone.

    Could I replace the chip in the iphone 6s that stores the activation lock with a different iphone chip?

    Where did you get the phone? A store will replace it and ebay will refund your money. If you found an iphone on the street and you can't activate it, you could try and take it to a police station where they'll hold onto it and wait for the owner to come find it.

    3. Put your phone in there.
    4. Wait until the gold is cold again.
    5. Youtube. Upload it.

    7. Sell your phone as a golden iphone.
    8. profit.


    I think you can't do anything. Just give it back to the store or wherever you bought it or replace the motherboard.

    Where did you buy it? Don't they have some kind of return policy?
