The quickest way to get an iOS or iPadOS device to the Activation Lock screen is to send an MDM Erase Device command via the Options dropdown in GoLive.
However, wiping the device via Apple Configurator, Apple Music, iTunes, or the device itself also works.
With iOS and iPadOS devices, the MDM Bypass Code can be entered in two different ways.
- The end-user can input the code directly on the device
- If the device is synced to a macOS device, the code can be copied and pasted into Apple Music/iTunes or via the Finder in Catalina
This code can be dropped into the password field without an Apple ID. The images below show how a couple of those scenarios look as of the time this article was published. Additionally, if the bypass code was misplaced, the Managed Apple ID and password used to create the token for Automated Device Enrollment token can be input here to unlock the device.
