Forgot iPhone Passcode

To protect data from being accessed by others, we usually choose to set passcode for our iPhone. But if we forget the passcode and input it wrong above 6 times, we will be locked out too and the iPhone will be disabled. That sounds strange but it just happens once in a while like we locked ourselves out of our doors, cars and email accounts, etc. Suppose that you are unlucky and forgot your iPhone passcode, you will not have any chance to get it back. The only way is to erase your device and reset it.



Note: It is important to make iPhone backup as there is no way to get data back if you erase your device without backup.
