    Hi all some months back I suffered a stroke and as such have forgotten a lot of things one of which being my Ipad password now I have tried to reset it but cannot because support are sending an email to an email address that no longer exists so what can I do? I can not reset to factory setting because I do not have a password and if I did I would lose all my emails so any help would be gratefully received

    Hi, stevequa! Welcome to iPF!

    Here's what you can do when you forgot the password for your Apple ID: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5787
    I hope that's what you're looking for.
