Forgot iPhone passcode and receive message “iPhone is disabled connect to iTunes”? Or perhaps your iPhone is physically damaged and the screen is unreadable. How can you fix a disabled iPhone X/8/7/SE/6s/6/5s/5/4s with/without iTunes? Read on and you’ll find full solutions to bypass disabled iPhone in this post.

Situation 1: iPhone is Disabled Due to Wrong Passcode

Whatever the reason sometimes you entered the wrong passcode 10 times in a row, your iPhone will automatically disable itself and say that it needs to be connected to iTunes to be restored. If you ever synced your iPhone with iTunes, then you’ll be able to factory reset your iPhone without passcode from iTunes.

What if you have not synced your iPhone with iTunes before? I’ll recommend you an iPhone passcode bypass tool – Tenorshare iPhone Unlocker. It will restore an iPhone without passcode. Download it and start with iPhone disabled fix without iTunes.

Update: We've tested the latest version of this unlocker, it removed the passcode of an iPhone after disabled for 7 days.
