However all things considered, it is absolutely free and does not require any third party application to bypass. All it needs is access to your wifi through DNS. 

You need to keep in mind though that this method does allow you to use the features like YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook etc. on the iPhone but only a limited number of those. What you are essentially doing is using your WiFi to override the apple security system and are not using the iOS anymore. This is a method to be used generally in the case of a stolen iPhone finding its way to you and you have to track down the owner.

Steps to follow:

  • Begin with turning the phone ON.
  • You should be starting with the setup process of the device with the first screen asking you to choose language.
  • Go through the entire setup process until you reach the selecting WiFi screen.
  • Once you see your WiFi network, click on the small “i” next to it.
  • Now click on the “Configure DNS” and then tap on “Manual”.
  • Select “+Add Server” and a blank screen should come up.
  • In here enter the new DNS server details based on your location.
    1. USA/North America:
    2. Europe:
    3. Asia:
    4. Other areas:
  • Tap on “Back” > “Done” > “Activation help.”
  • Once you accomplish the above mentioned easy steps, a message would appear saying you have successfully connected to my server.
  • Tap on the “Menu” on the top right.
  • Scroll through a number of applications available for use such as YouTube, Mail, Maps, Social, User chat, Video, Audio and more.
  • Select the appropriate application which you think can provide with the information you require for the owner of the phone.

To understand the above steps a little better, you can watch the video shared below guiding you through the entire process of bypassing the activation lock using DNS.


You can also use LockWiper to unlock your iCloud activation lock. It is a paid method to do so but is cheap enough and works perfectly for sure if your model is compatible to their tool. To check this you have to download the free trial version, which as the name suggests is ABSOLUTELY free. 

Do make note that the free trial does not help you bypass the activation lock for iCloud but rather just helps you connect with their tool and check the compatibility of your device. 

You can check that your phone supports LockWiper or not through the trial version. If it is then you should go buy the paid version of the toll and unlock your Apple iCloud Activation lock.

We would suggest you use this method only in case all the other free solutions for the bypassing mentioned here fail. 


This is something which involves the company APPLE itself in your little trouble.

In certain cases Apple itself would help in removing the iCloud lock from your device but this method has certain pre requisites to it. 

Firstly, you need to have either of the two things for sure with you if there are any hopes at all of apple helping you with your bypass.

  • Proof like receipts etc. that you are the owner of the device that needs a bypass.
  • Any proof that the ownership of the iPhone has been transferred to you.

Post this hurdle, Apple would check whether the iPhone you wish to bypass has been reported stolen or missing. If it is found to be so, you would be notified.

In case the proof of ownership that you provided turns out to be inadequate, Apple would not help you with the Bypass operation.
