    So my niece has an iPad which she stupidly blocked and doesn't know the Apple ID password, as such I have tried the popular methods out there and while I've done them properly it didn't unlock the iPad. The damn thing is still locked and asks for her Apple ID.

    I honestly have no clue why a 10 year old would need an iPad.

    Oh, and the screen is broken in half already as it is (she also has an iPhone 6 which miraculously the screen isn't broken yet)... Yay.

    Does anyone know of a way to unlock it?

    By the way, I think it's an iPad Mini.

    Thanks.

    I think you would have to contact Apple and provide some personal info to prove that you didn't just steal it. iCloud protection is notoriously impossible to bypass.

    Thanks. That's it then.

    She should've never had an iPad but that's not up to me so whatever.
