Apple iPod: How to unlock disabled iPod Touch using iCloud

If you haven’t backed up your iPod Touch in your computer but you have an iCloud backup, then you can use that as well to unlock your disabled iPod Touch. Here’s how.

  1. Use this method if you don’t have access to your computer. You can reset your iPod using the Find My iPhone website, as long as your iPod was registered with your Apple ID and Find My iPod was enabled in the iCloud menu. This will only work if the iPod is currently connected to a wireless network.

    • Because you’ll be doing this remotely, you won’t be able to create a new backup. This means all of your data will be lost, but you’ll be able to load any previous backups you may have created.

  2. Visit on another computer or device. You can use a web browser on any device or computer, or the Find My iPhone app on another iOS device.

  3. Log in with your Apple ID. Make sure you log in with the same Apple ID associated with your iPod.

  4. Click the “All Devices” button at the top of the window. This will display all of your Apple devices that are connected with your Apple ID.

  5. Select your iPod from the list. The map will center on it, and details will appear in a card.

  6. Click the “Erase” button and confirm. This will send a signal to your iPod to begin the reset process. The reset process will take a little while to complete.

    • If your iPod cannot be contacted by Find My iPhone, you’ll need to try another method in this article.

  7. Setup your iPod like new. Once the reset is finished, you’ll be prompted to setup your iPod as if it were new. You’ll be given the option to load a backup if you’ve made one in the past, otherwise the device will be fresh and need to be reloaded with music.
