If you forget your iPhone passcode, you can make too many incorrect tries and wind up with an iPhone that is disabled, the notification will indicate how long you must wait before attempting to unlock it again:

  • If you enter the wrong passcode five times in a row, your iPhone will be deactivated for one minute.
  • If you enter the wrong passcode seven times in a row, your iPhone will be deactivated for five minutes.
  • If you enter the wrong passcode eight times in a row, your iPhone will be deactivated for fifteen minutes.
  • If you enter the wrong passcode nine times in a row, your iPhone will be deactivated for sixty minutes.
  • If you enter the wrong passcode ten times in a row, your iPhone will be deactivated forever.

Thing you’ll need before restoring your iPhone :

  • A computer, If you don’t have access to a Mac or PC, you might be able to borrow one from an Apple Retail Store or a Mac reseller.
  • A lightning to USB cable will be required as well. If your Mac only has USB-C ports and your iPhone cord only has USB-A ports, this might be an issue… You’ll need an adapter or a USB-C to lightning cord in that scenario.

Restoring your iPhone using iTunes – iPhone Disabled

Instead, you’ll need to reinstall your applications and data from a backup after restoring the iPhone to factory settings. It’s worth mentioning that this is one of the reasons why you should always have a current backup.

  • Start iTunes on your computer and connect your iPhone using a USB cord.
  • Enter Recovery Mode

    Connect your iPhone to your computer and enter recovery mode as the first step. Whatever method you use will be determined on the iPhone model you have.

  • Once your iPhone or iPad has entered recovery mode, go to iTunes or the Finder and locate your device. You’ll be asked if you wish to Restore or Update your device. Choose Restore.

After you’ve restored your device, it’ll boot up like any other new iPhone or iPad. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the setup. When it’s time to restore a backup, go to the Finder, iTunes, or iCloud and choose the most recent backup you have.

Restoring your iPhone using iCloud -iPhone Disabled

If your iPhone is disabled, it’s likely that it won’t connect to iTunes, making it difficult to restore it using the instructions above. In this instance, you’ll need to use iCloud to restore your iPhone.

This approach will only work if you have already set up Find My iPhone and the disabled iPhone has internet access. Otherwise, we recommend going to an Apple Store or contacting customer service.

1. In any web browser, go to the Find My iPhone page.

After completing these steps, you may restore your data from an iTunes backup or an iCloud backup.
