My iPad screen comes up saying “ipad is disabled”. Then it tells me how many minutes I must wait to try again. I have tried all my known passwords, but do not have what is required, and I don’t know why. What is required, it seems, is something called a “passcode’. That is entirely new to me. Is there some way I can fix the problem, which seems to have occurred out of nowhere. It showed up when I left off reading a book on my Kindle, and left it for a minute to get a drink of water. When it first show up, it gave me a minute to fix the problem, then five minutes, then fifteen, then sixty….
Is there any reason this sort of thing should happen?
