this is not possible the only way to get your data is to fix your ipad.

Maybe, but I'm not sure. You should give a try to data recovery tools like Recuva and EaseUs. Both are effective and most importantly FREE. You must try them.

All modern apple mobile devices come with full hardware encryption so once you have set a pass code pulling the data off the chip will not work.

The way that professional data recovery labs recover data is we use forensic tools that can access the data as long as you have the passcode.

The iPad Mini belonged to my son who died unexpectedly last November. He wasn't one to sync with iTunes or iCloud. We were hoping to save the family photos, otherwise we lose another piece of him and irreplaceable memories. My oldest son thought he might be able to guess the passcode and security questions, but just ended up disabling the device after multiple attempts. I appreciate you responding! Maybe someday someone will find a way. Thanks.

@imichealo Your best and safest chance of recovering the device is to take it to the apple store and plead your case with them . this is a security issue and apple may want to seem as secure as possible but if you plead your case to them there may be someway they can recover your lost memories. otherwise chances are slim. So sorry for your lose i cannot imagine the pain of loosing one of my kids

No. You have to either put the chip on another iPad or get the current one working to access the flash memory from the iPad. Practically speaking at least.

Any way to get into a disable iPad Mini that wasn't backed up without losing everything?

by

Nope. I've never seen it done. https://discussions.apple.com/message/24...

Something in the thread above might help. I doubt it though.

Not possible. This thing is designed to block such attempts to prevent security breach. Your data is no longer inside, you can consider it already lost.

I recently had a customer bring in his iPad and we established that the unit was not tethered to the cloud.

By hooking up the unit to a desktop we were able to create an Apple ID that allowed us to back up the unit, capture data, save to the desktop then we ported the info to a new iPad. Hope this helps.

You have entered into one of the most frustrating problems with the new Mac security system. We will be keeping a good thought for you. Good luck to you.
