    Hey all!

    I know this will sound fishy but I'm being completely honest with you all.

    I work in a hotel cleaning rooms. When we find things that a guest has left behind we turn them in to the lost and found. If we're interested in having the item we can put a claim on it and when time is up we get first dibs. Well I was lucky enough, and some poor soul was unlucky enough, to find an iPad left behind. With expensive electronics we have to wait 3 months to take it. The guest never called in to inquire so I got to keep it.

    My problem now is that I can't unlock it. I don't have the password and it's telling me it's linked to the iCloud. Is it possible to wipe the device so that I can use it?

    Thanks in advance!

    You can sell it for parts.

    Better yet, turn it over to the police and have them figure things out.
