    Hey

    I recently purchased a used iPad Mini that was logged in with an iCloud account no one has access to and I forgot so and restored it with iTunes, but obviously I cannot use it now since it is still connected to the iCloud account that belongs to no one. My question is, is there any workaround the iCloud activation when setting up the iPad, or should I give up and use it for a prank instead?

    It's not possible to circumvent iCloud's activation lock. If you don't know the previous owner, it won't be possible to unlock and/or use the iPad.
    It has to be removed from the former owner's iCloud ID.
