    While we were on break for the holiday my son locked his iPad. I figured now big deal it says connect to iTunes. Now that we're home I've conceded it, let it back up and all that fancy stuff. BUT... When I go to restore it, iTunes tells me that I have to disable "Find my iPad" first. I don't know how to do that while the iPad is still locked because I can't get to the setting. I thought that was the point of connecting it to iTunes at home where its been backed up prior was to unlock everything.



    Any help please?

    I believe dfu restore will help you: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201263

    But I feel you should know how to remove a device at some point. How to remove a device from Find My iPhone: https://support.apple.com/kb/PH2702?locale=en_US

    I totally agree!

    I was unaware that it would disable that when you remove it.
