How to Recover Ipad using iTunes

Sometimes when we lose our ipad pass-code, we are left wondering "what do i do" and the next question would definitely be "how do i restore my device" (These questions will come especially when the ipad is not fully yours and you as a result of trying to unlock it, entered wrong pass-codes several times)

simply put, restoring your ipad and making a new start is the best way to recover an ipad whose passcode has been lost. this will definitely wipe all personal data, but its better than losing the device right? but if you already did a back-up before loosing your passcode, you just wipe all data and restore from back-up and keep  flexing with your ipad.
Trying to Restore the iPad from iTunes requires a pass-code, but you can restore the iPad from Recovery Mode. This wipes the iPad completely and installs the latest version of iOS from scratch.

Note: You will need to possess the apple ID and password that was used to originally set up the device.
