MOBILedit Forensic Express is able to connect to iPhones protected by passcodes. Most iPhone users use iTunes, especially for managing music and almost everyone has connected their iPhone to iTunes at least once. To get through the passcode, you need to access the computer that the locked iPhone
was connected to and obtain the 'lockdown file' that iTunes creates automatically for any iPhone that connects to that PC.
You will find the lockdown files located in the iTunes folder along one of these file paths, depending on your operating system.
Windows Vista, 7, 8, 10
Then select your lockdown file
Click on Open and your iPhone will reconnect and will be unlocked.
If your device is running iOS 9, or higher, the device will not connect if it was rebooted after it was locked. If the phone is still running you can use this method without any issue.
