Forgot My iphone Code And Cannot Access My Phone Now.

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

If you have an iOS device and you enter a wrong password for 6 times, your device will be locked and disabled. That means all the data in it will be lost, until and unless a back-up is done. What to do if i forgot my passcode on my iPhone?
