How To Unlock iCloud Activation Bypass iCloud on iOS 16 and iOS 15

Ever since it was introduced on iOS, iCloud Activation was meant to prevent thieves from stealing your phone, but it inadvertently made it possible to lock yourself out of your own device as well. Since iCloud activation is activated by default once you sign in to an Apple account in order to get apps, many people found themselves locked outside their own devices when they created throwaway accounts and ended up forgetting the credentials.

Of course, iCloud Activation did very little to protect against thieves stealing iOS devices. Instead, those stolen and locked devices ended up online on eBay, Craigslist, and similar websites where people got scammed thinking they are buying a functional secondhand device when instead they got a locked one.

The same story applies to SIM lock which remains popular to this day. In many countries, the SIM lock is not removed even if you’ve completed the contractual obligations towards the original carrier.

Can iCloud Activation and SIM lock be bypassed on iOS 16?

Fortunately, there are multiple ways nowadays to go about it. In the past, vendors used access to Apple’s GSX in order to process iCloud removal, others used various tools based on the checkm8 exploit which was released back in 2019 but works only on iPhone X and older.

Nowadays there are many ways to unlock iCloud activation, so in this article, we will check out one of these methods, called SIMUnlockPro. While their name implies they only do SIM unlocks, they actually provide iCloud Bypass as well.

SIM Unlocks tend to be more straightforward. Usually, the devices are locked to a specific carrier when they are purchased under contract for a period of years until the device essentially paid off. However, many carriers across the world do not automatically release the SIM lock from the device when the contract is over and instead charge an additional fee for this.

If a device is SIM locked, you will not be able to activate and use any other SIM from any other network on that device until you unlock it.

Bypassing iCloud Activation is completely legal as long as you do it on your own device that you’ve purchased. It’s illegal to attempt to bypass activation on stolen property and iCloud-locked devices tend to be tracked via GPS in FindMy on Apple’s website. Please use the content of this article responsibly and within legal borders.

If you forgot your Apple ID & password, or you got a second-hand device and you were scammed and the seller vanished, this is a perfectly legitimate reason to attempt to unlock the device you paid for.

If you found a lost device on the street, please contact local authorities and give them the device. SIMUnlockPro does NOT support unlocking devices that are in Lost / Stolen mode to prevent fraud.

How To Unlock iCloud Activation / Bypass iCloud on iOS 16 and iOS 15

If you want to unlock the iCloud activation for your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, or Apple Watch that YOU LEGALLY OWN, you can use SIMUnlockPro’s unlock service which allows you to unlock the device via IMEI number. SIMUnlockPro is a New Jersey company specializing in SIM and mobile unlocks across the globe.

Here’s how to Unlock iCloud Activation using SIMUnlockPro:

  1. Navigate to the iCloud Removal page on SIMUnlockPro.
  2. On the Service & IMEI section select your device model/
  3. Type the IMEI or SERIAL (S/N) of the device in the IMEI field. IMEI numbers must be 15 characters long. Please double-check it to avoid typos.
  4. Submit your order and pay.

It’s that simple. Now you just have to wait. It may take a few days to even a few weeks for your device to be unlocked. This is because different devices have different grades of difficulty to unlock them. If your order takes too long, you can request a refund at any time, but please check their refund policy to ensure your case qualifies.

Do keep in mind that SIMUnlockPro does not issue refunds if you submit a request for unlocking a device that is placed in LOST or STOLEN mode by its owner. To ensure your device can be unlocked, it’s best to pay a few dollars and have SIMUnlockPro first check your IMEI number and tell you exactly what kind of lock you have and if it can be safely unlocked.

Remember, stolen or lost devices will not be unlocked.
