ipad 4 forgot 4 digit pin

I have an ipad 4 (so it is old) and I have forgotten my 4 digit pin. I have not been on it in 3 + years.
I know the password to my itunes account but cannot remember my id.
Is there anything that I can do?

I do not have the original PC that this was setup with so I am at a loss.
I would be fine to reset it to factory defaults, but cannot see anyway how to do that.

The worst part is I think I know the 4 digits that are used but cannot remember what order they are in and it just keeps adding timeout amounts.

Do you also have an Apple Account?  You may be able to reset it that way.

Otherwise, you need to take it to the Apple Store and see if they can reset it for you.

I actually just remembered my id and am now logged into itunes. How can I reset my pin?
I do not have the computer I originally synced with so it says error attached.

You would have to try to sync the iPad with another iTunes on another computer

Start iTunes, hook up the iPad and see if you can connect it / trust it.
