How to Unlock iPhone with Cracked Screen

iphone screen repairWhen the screen cracks on your iPhone, it can be quite frustrating to continue to use it. This is especially true if the crack interferes with unlocking your phone. Luckily, there is a simple way to unlock your iPhone, even with the cracked screen.

The best way to unlock your iPhone when you have a cracked screen is to ask someone to call you. When the call comes through, you will be able to answer it. After hanging up, the phone stays unlocked.

What if you can’t get someone to call you because you can’t access the phone feature? Try to open the camera with your finger. If you can do that, the camera comes up, snap a picture, and then you should be able to press on Home to get to your Home screen. This means your phone is unlocked for the time being.

What to Do After It’s Unlocked

Once it is unlocked, you should back up your phone immediately. This way, if you are unable to unlock later on, you won’t lose all of your data.

After backing up your phone, the next step should be to arrange to have the screen repaired. iResQ performs iPhone cracked screen repairs within 24 hours.
