I had to repair my iPhone camera, and I had to back it up and delete it so that the workshop could access the camera app without being able to access my data. After retrieving it after the repair, I wanted to restore the backup but had to enter the password. Every password I could think of is wrong. iCloud passwords, Mac passwords, iPhone passwords, pins and all other kinds of passwords.
When and where was this hell password set? There were no questions that asked me for a password before I backed up the phone. I have spent hours entering passwords and nothing works. It’s amazing that this does not use the Apple password, Mac password or any other device password.
Is there anything I can do to either recover the password or at least find out when and where it was set so that I can at least get a hint or reminder of what the password might be?
I should mention that I looked through my keychain and found nothing with “Iphone backup” or “iOS backup”. My Macbook pro is from the end of 2017, and I have never made an iPhone backup before. I do not remember ever setting a password: /
A friend asked me to call Apple. There’s probably no way they can help me with this, right?
