Way 1: How to Reset a Forgotten iPhone or iPad Passcode Using iTunes

When you are locked out of an iPhone, the first thing you should consider is whether you have already synced your device with iTunes on your computer. If you have, way 1 is suitable for you to reset iPhone passcode. If not, directly go to way 2.

Way 2: How to Restore a Password Locked iPhone Using Recovery Mode

If you've never synced your device with iTunes, this way can be helpful. Just note that this way of unlocking your device will wipe out all of your data on iPhone and set it up as new.

Besides the above-mentioned 2 ways, you can also use Find My iPhone to restore a disabled iPhone, if you have Find My iPhone turned on. Go to icloud.com/#find, and sign in with your Apple ID. Select your device and click "Erase [device]" to erase your device and passcode.
