    hi there

    can anyone help me... i dropped my phone (down concrete stairs at work) and screen smashed and is falling apart. not sure if it is on or not i don't think so!
    i have looked online about getting photos off the phone but all asking for a passcode!! clearly i cannot put in a passcode on the phone...

    can anyone please help me? i haven't backed up on itunes or icloud.... i thought i had on itunes but i went to the last restore and nope that hasn't worked!!

    many thanks
    Michelle xx

    Look for a shop that can temporarily install a new screen so the passcode can be entered and a backup can be made.

    I'm sorry to say, there's no way past the passcode. In iOS devices, the passcode encrypts the device and entering it is the only way to access the data.

    How do you know it's beyond repair?
    How did you get "some" files?

    There's no way to get in without entering the password.
    Get the screen repaired if you really want the pics.

    Yes, but that would require you to have previously synced it/Trusted a computer. Have you?

    Contact a third party repair shop, ie not one affiliated with Apple, and ask what they would charge to temporarily install a screen to see if a passcode can be entered.
    I did this at a previous job on a regular basis with a high degree of success.

    Agreed. Considering it wouldn't be worth accessing without the necessary repair.
