Answer:
Answer:

I would simply try restarting it first and see if it behaves as expected and only requires the 4 digit code. If that fails, you will have to restore it in order to unlock it. If you have a backup, you can restore the backup after you unlock the iPad.

If you forgot the passcode for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, or your device is disabled - Apple Support
