    Hi:
    Is it necessary while restoring, we have to enter the same Icould account which we entered in the phone?
    Or no with any apple account we can restore it?

      Hello Dear Ghulam Abbas
      If the “find My iPhone” feature is enabled then it will require the apple with the password and it’s not necessary while setting up your iPhone to sign in with your iCloud or Apple ID. It’s optional, but I am recommending to setup it with your Apple ID.

      1. Faiz Orz

        Remember: if you don’t know the Apple ID that is enabled “Find My iPhone” with that Apple ID, then don’t restore your iPhone. Because you will not able to Sign in without that Apple ID.

      Yeah, Dear Faiz Orz.
      Mr. Ghulam Abbas when you want to reset your iPhone or iPad, make sure that “Find my iPhone” is disabled or if it’s not disabled so 99% you’ve to know your iCould or Apple ID that for the first time your device is setup. Because while setting the device you’ll be asked to enter the apple ID.

    I don’t think so that most of the iPhone or iPad users don’t buy it and it will be gifted by someone. I think this case is in some places like Quetta, Pakistan or some other cities. But we talk about worldwide not only one city or one country. Second, We just show the way of resetting password every body want to know the way. And third we can’t find anyone to trough their device if they have gotten that erroneously or gifted by someone.
