    My aunt passed away a few days ago and she had an iPhone 4S. She has a password to unlock it. Anyway to get around it so we can get the pics off? Thank you

    No there isn't. A reset through iTunes will put everything back to factory settings.
    If you have access to her iTunes you may be able to extract the pics from a saved back up. Would require her Apple Id and password.

    Doesn't help get photos off of a 4s. Does let you see contact list if completed correctly. iPhone 4 it will allow you to see pics if steps are completed correctly and at proper intervals.

    Isn't it this communities stock answer to say no there isn't anything you can do?
    If your aunt passed away I am sorry. Could also be someone who stole someone's phone.

    JWB, I hope you find a solution to your problem. I know that the photos there are the last treasure left back by your aunt. I'd start by going through her papers to see if by chance she wrote her password somewhere. Good luck and let us know how you make out. If I run into any other possible solutions, I will post them here.

    She had an I phone so I believe she had a computer. Plug the iPhone into her computer to see the pictures. If she didn't had a computer for back ups,then I don't know.
