How to Unlock a Locked iPod Touch

By Samuel Gibbs

The Apple iPod Touch is an iOS device that closely resembles the iPhone. The iPod Touch forms part of Apple’s iPod portable media line and packs several innovative features. As it’s name suggests, the iPod Touch uses a capacitive touchscreen for control and comes with 32 or 64 GB of storage. With WiFi and a mobile version of Apple’s Safari, the iPod touch is more than a media player and can also run iOS applications downloaded from the App Store. To save battery and prevent unauthorized use, the iTouch uses a lockscreen, which can be passcoded to prevent entry into the device.

Step 1

Press the power button on the top left side of the device or the home button on the front of the device to turn the screen on.

Step 2

Slide the bar at the bottom of the screen marked "Slide To Unlock" from left to right.

Step 3

Enter the correct passcode if required.
