I forgot my caccess code and I disabled my iPhone. I really need some help solving the problem and getting access to my iPhone! What should I do?

Some access codes are so effective that you forget them. Sometimes, even worse, after trying to use different passcodes (6 times), a window appears saying that theiPhone is disabled and asks to try a few minutes later.
This is the situation that many iPhone owners face every day, for various reasons. When you forget the access code to the device you can try one of the following ways to unlock the iPhone depending on the situation:

Solution 1: Unlock iPhone by restoring it if it was previously synced with iTunes

If you have synced your device with iTunes before, you can try resetting the login password by restoring the device with an iTunes backup. Here are the steps:
Step 1. Connect your iPhone to the computer via a USB cable and launch iTunes. Make sure the computer is the one you used to sync your iPhone with iTunes. If it's not the same computer, iTunes will ask you to enter the code. However, if you can't find the computer where iTunes doesn't ask for a password you could try the second way which is to reset your iPhone.
Step 2. If your iPhone is still disabled or iTunes doesn't sync your iPhone automatically, you need to sync your iPhone with iTunes manually. Click View> Show Sidebar, your iPhone will be displayed in the left sidebar.
Step 3. When the backup and sync finishes, click on “your iPhone” below DEVICE in the sidebar. On the right side, click the Summary tab. Click the "Restore iPhone" button.
Step 4. Access the Summary tab again. In the Backup area, click on “Restore Backup”. Then you can reset your iPhone's passcode.

Solution 2: How to unlock iPhone if you have never synced your iPhone with iTunes

If you have tried solution # 1 but Tunes cannot connect to your iPhone because it is locked with a passcode or you are trying from another computer then we recommend that you use one of the following two solutions.

La first solution is to use the program Dr.Fone Unlock which allows you to unlock iPhone with forgotten password, too WITHOUT USING iTunes.

La second solution instead, perhaps more complex and manual, is to put the iPhone in DFU mode as indicated below. Note that by following the instructions below you will be able to reset your iPhone (all data on your iPhone will be erased):

Step 1. Press and hold the power button (some people call it the Sleep / Wake button) of your iPhone for a few seconds until the red slider appears. Slide the slider to turn off your iPhone.
Step 2. Reconnect your iPhone with the computer via the USB cable and press and hold the Home button.
Step 3. Don't let go of the Home button until you see the "Connect to iTunes" screen on your iPhone screen. iTunes will detect the device in recovery mode. Click OK to restore (reset) your iPhone.

Solution 3: How to Unlock iPhone with Forgotten Passcode via dr.fone

As a last, desperate attempt to be able to recover your iPhone data before the eventual reset, we recommend that you give it a try Dr.Fone for iOS. This is a program designed to recover data mistakenly deleted from the device memory but in many cases it can be useful to unlock iphone with forgotten passcode, in the sense that it can also access the internal memory of the iPhone to back up data before making reset (reset) the device.

hi, my iphone crashed suddenly

    My favorite is this: "Hi everyone I have an iPhone5, I forgot my password and I don't have an iTunes account, what can I do?"
    Holy shit they wrote it in big letters, what the hell are you still going to ask:

  • I love you <3

How can I go about solving the problem? Without connecting it to the PC. Thanks for the help if possible. Thanks.

  • But if I do option 2, is the data saved? Before forgetting the password, I did not make any backups

    • no, they made the premise on purpose, nothing is saved with option 2, I'm sorry.

  • but it also applies to iphone 4 s, because mine has become a bit slow.

    • Reset it all.

      • Hi! I wanted to ask you but did you manage to unlock iPhone 6 in the end? PE right to understand why it happened to me too! If you can tell me something, do I listen to you very willingly?

      • Send it in dfu, reset and log in with iCloud credentials

      • change the internal memory and you will have your iPhone as good as new. in an unauthorized center or you do it yourself. very simple. you will lose the data but you will have your iPhone again.

  • But does this procedure also apply to an iPhone 8 with IOS 8?
