One of the most common issues that iOS users face is dealing with an iCloud activation lock. It’s stressful and mostly unnecessary. If your iPhone is locked with iCloud activation and you cannot recover the password, you should try an iCloud activation lock removal tool to remove it.
In this article, we have selected the 7 most popular iCloud removal tools, displayed their pros and cons, and told you whether you should try them on your own Apple device.
Compared with free activation lock override tools, professional iCloud activation lock removal tools are relatively reliable and trustworthy. Some of the tools like iBypasser usually have a high success rate and are compatible with iOS 12/13 or even the latest iOS 14. However, before you pay for an app, there are a few things you should know.
1 Before you try it: tips and trivia.
Will it be compatible?
Although professional iCloud activation lock removal tools usually have better compatibility, you should still consider it as a determining factor. Does the program have a Windows / Mac version? Is your device compatible with the solution? Is the current iOS version of your device compatible?
To avoid buying the software for free, it is better to choose a product with a free trial version that allows you to make sure that your device can be effectively overwritten.
About the price
Most legal software products are charged per month, season, year or lifetime. However, there are some products that charge a fee for each individual test. Be careful with these products. Because some solutions are not very complete. This means that when you restart your device, you will have to pay for the bypass again.
Beware of fraud
Not all paid activation lock removal tools are authentic. Check these factors to detect a scam: does the product have a trusted official website? Do you have a money back guarantee? Are there authentic customer reviews? Always think twice before paying.

Activation lock probably has the highest level of security among all Apple’s privacy and security measures, and free tools are clearly not as effective as professional tools for bypassing iCloud activation lock. However, you can find some free tools or methods that can bypass activation lock for iOS 12/13 or some earlier versions for free. But the question is whether they really work.
Do free tools to remove iCloud activation lock really work?
One thing about free tools is that, as free as they may seem, they sometimes consume time and energy that is worth much more than a few dollars. Therefore, before you get into the myriad of “free” tricks and methods, you should take some time and check whether they are worth it or not.
Will the free iCloud bypass really work?
That depends. Since these methods and tools are free, developers or inventors don’t usually put too much effort into maintaining them. Either they work for some iOS modules/systems but not for others, or they used to work but no longer do. The truth is that you shouldn’t put too much hope in them if your device is running iOS 12/13 or iOS 14, because these new iOS versions are most likely not compatible with these free tools. The only option is to use professional software to bypass the activation lock.
But hey, they’re free, so there’s no harm in trying, right? Here are some of the most commonly used free tools and methods to bypass the activation lock.

Rest of the world: 109.17.60
Step 3. Click “Back” in the top left corner of your screen. Tap on your Wi-Fi network again to enter your Wi-Fi password and tap “Connect”.
Step 4. Tap the “Back” tab on the page button and your iPhone will attempt to activate and go to a new page. Quickly tap the “Back” tab in the top right corner of the page again and you’ll be back on the Wi-Fi page.
Step 5. You should now see “iCloudDNSBypass.net” at the top. Scroll down and tap the menu icon to access apps and various features.
Step 6. Choose an app that will give you the correct information about the owner of the app so that you can contact him/her to remove the iCloud activation lock from the iPhone.
