We have an Ipad that became obsolete/useless. Wife and teenager used it about 10 years ago with a different apple Id to access abroad app stores with a much better and bigger selection of games, apps etc.
The Ipad became really old, so old that it stopped doing IOS updates for at least 3-4 years. All was fine and then one day the unthinkable happened. The Ipad did in automatic IOS updated and rebooted whilst we were asleep. You can guess the rest.
We (read wife and son) were unable to remember the apple id and much less its password. I’ve exhausted all avenues and recovery steps as advised by the Apple Store, but you never actually get to speak to a person to assist.
So save from exhausting my last avenue, which entails taking it to a local I-store for assistance, I thought I’d ask here.
Seeing as it is still an electronic device, can this thing be flashed and loaded with new software/firmware? Maybe this Raspberry Pi stuff?
I really just want to use it as an extra device to monitor my solar setup and the CBI smart device.
I really doubt if the Istore guys will be able to help, as we have no way to prove ownership. We still have the correct pin, but once we get to the apple id part and password, we cant go further.
Is there any way to remedy this?
