“My friend got locked out of her iPhone, so, I told her to use Siri to unlock the device. I have read about that so I even told her how to do it but it is not working.”
Unfortunately, the Siri method used to take advantage of a specific iOS glitch, it was useful but with iOS 11 the glitch was fixed and there is no way you can ever do that again. So, how to bypass iPhone passcode without Siri? Fortunately, there are other options available and we have discussed 4 of them in the article below. Take a look:
Method 1. Bypass iPhone Passcode without Siri via an iPhone Passcode Unlock Software
The use of Siri was a really essential way to bypass an iPhone lock screen, effectively. As effective as this procedure may be, it was possible due to a loophole on iOS. But that particular loophole has since been closed after the launch of iOS 11.
Even after the launch of iOS 12 and on iOS 13, the situation stayed the same but most of the users are not aware of this fact. So, when they try to make use of Siri for bypassing an iPhone, they are setting themselves up for a fail.
Although, there are other official ways to bypass iPhone passcode without Siri, there is both iTunes and iCloud methods available but the simplest and the most effective way to execute this procedure will be to use professional 3rd party software, capable of bypassing iPhone lock.
There are a considerable number of iPhone passcode unlock software lurking on the internet but after due consideration, we came to the following conclusion. As per our opinion and of course after a few trials, these 2 programs came up on the top. Let’s have a look at the guide below;

It will also be very easy to bypass iPhone 5 passcode without Siri via Tenorshare 4uKey. This is another effective software, just like the previous one; capable of bypassing iPhone passcode with ease.
So, without further ado, let’s have a look at how to bypass iPhone 8 passcode without Siri with Tenorshare 4uKey;
Step 1: In the beginning, you need to download and install Tenorshare 4uKey on your computer.
Step 2: Then, run the program on the computer and select “Unlock Lock Screen Passcode” option to proceed.

The procedure will be long, you have to wait patiently but the progression will be visible on the program panel. After the bypass is complete, you will be able to unlock the device and set up a new lock.
Method 2. Bypass iPhone Passcode without Siri via iTunes
Even though the 3rd party programs are very effective, we can’t ignore the fact that there are actually official ways to achieve the same feat. There are 2 ways also; at first, we have iTunes. Let’s have a look at the guide;
Step 1: First of all, make sure that you have the latest version of iTunes on your computer. Then, connect your iPhone to it, via USB cable.
Step 2: iTunes is supposed to detect the device, automatically. If not, you have to do it manually, and confirm the sync.
Step 3: Then, click on the “Summary” tab on the left side of the panel. Then, click on “Restore”.
Step 4: After that, click on “Restore from iTunes Backup”. You will be asked to choose a backup file from the list, you can choose the most recent back.
After executing the following steps properly, your iPhone will be restored but all the data will be erased along with the password that was stopping you from entering the device.
Method 3. Bypass iPhone Passcode without Siri via iCloud
iCloud is also an official application with the capability to bypass iPhone passcode without Siri. Let’s have a look;
Step 1: You need to get hold of another device and connect it to the internet. Then, go to https://icloud.com/find.
Step 2: You have to sign in using your proper Apple ID, in order to enter the account.
Step 3: In your iCloud account, click “All Devices” and select your iPhone from the list of devices. So, click on your device and select “Erase iPhone”.
After executing those steps, your iPhone will be erased completely, along with your password. This seems like a very effective procedure but there is a catch. In order to use this method with iCloud, the “Find My iPhone” feature needs to be activated beforehand, without that activation this method won’t work.
Nonetheless, each and every discussed method has the potential to unlock a locked iPhone effectively. But the iCloud method is only applicable if you had activated Find My iPhone and as usual iTunes removes all the data from the device. And without the Siri method available, users are looking for something more effective, less complicated and something that does not erase the iPhone data completely. That is where iMyFone LockWiper and Tenorshare 4uKey software are successful.
