Modified on Thu, 29 Jun 2023 at 05:01 PM



To change the passcode/PIN on your iPad, follow the steps below:

  1. Unlock your device using your current passcode/PIN.
  2. Go to the "Settings" app on your device's home screen.
  3. In the Settings menu, scroll down and tap on "Face ID & Passcode" or "Touch ID & Passcode" (depending on the model and iOS version).
  4. You will be prompted to enter your current passcode/PIN again to proceed.
  5. Once you have entered the current passcode/PIN, you will see the option to change it. Tap on the "Change Passcode" or "Change PIN" option.
  6. Enter your current passcode/PIN one more time.
  7. Now, you will be asked to enter a new passcode/PIN. Choose a new passcode/PIN that is easy for you to remember but difficult for others to guess. It's recommended to use a combination of numbers, letters, and symbols for a stronger passcode/PIN.
  8. After entering the new passcode/PIN, you will be asked to confirm it by entering it again.
  9. Once you have confirmed the new passcode/PIN, it will be set as your new device unlock code.
  10. Remember to choose a passcode/PIN that is secure and not easily guessable to ensure the security of your iPad and the data stored on it.
