I just recently updated my iPhone 4S to iOS7 and it was pretty much okay at first.

After I turned on the passcode for lockscreen I am now unable to unlock my iPhone. I was so sure I put the correct passcode for it because that is the only passcode I used in my iPhone for years. How can I unlock my iPhone?


When you set the passcode, you are required to enter it twice to ensure that you don't make a mistake - if they don't match, you are requested to try again. If you are unable to use it to unlock your phone now then either you made the same typo twice when setting it, or you are not recalling accurately what you set it to. Either way, you will need to restore the phone via iTunes to rectify it.

  • when I turned it on, I enter the passcode twice and it was perfectly fine. i want to test it out so i locked the screen after setting it on, now it says i am putting a wrong passcode. And when I try to use siri while in lock screen it says i am not connected to the internet but in my control panel my wifi is on. If I restore my phone will it return to iOS6? THANK YOU VERY MUCH – sheena Sep 19 '13 at 9:32
  • No. You cannot downgrade the OS (unless you jailbreak it) – bobbyalex Oct 22 '13 at 9:22
