Let’s say I have an Apple ID that’s been disabled/locked for security reasons.
- This account is linked to my iPhone and in order to remove it or to simply disable find my iPhone, I have to answer the security questions on the account which I don’t remember anymore. So basically the account is glued to the device with FMI enabled.
- So then I get a new phone and restore a local iTunes backup that I made of the old phone with the account issue on to the new phone.
FMI shows as enabled on the new phone’s settings but I am not sure it’s actually enabled. IMEI checker sites such as imeipro show that it’s disabled but I want to get your opinion on the matter. I want to format the new phone and worry it too will become activation locked.
Does restoring a local backup using iTunes enable activation lock?
