I recently dropped my iPhone and half of the screen is broken. I directly ordered a new one but I cannot manage to backup my old one. I can still interact with the bottom half but when I plug it into my Mac, it asks me for my password which contains a "1" and I cannot type it. Face ID is locked so I cannot do anything. Is there a solution for me to backup old data ? I really cannot afford to lose it all so my last resort will be to replace the screen just to make the backup...
- Connect your iPhone with a Mac(that is trusted by your iPhone) using USB cable.
- open iTunes.
- Select your iPhone.
- Select the Backup method to your iCloud account or This Computer. It will not ask for any passcode, but if it does, you could enter it using a Bluetooth keyboard.
Note: I am not sure if a not trusted Mac or PC connected it will work. Also See the attached image.
