You can remove the passcode by restoring your device from iTunes or Find My iPhone if you've turned it on before. The catch here is that you will lose your data by following the above method, so you should be aware of that.

If you don't want any data loss, then you should first enter into DFU mode and use apps to get the passcode and paste the code somewhere, then exit DFU mode and input the passcode you just received. This method was recommended by a friend of a local workshop. More details can be found here, and you can leave comments for further requests.

Wipe the phone entirely using DFU mode.

Will I lost the data with this suggestion? Thanks

Yes, you will. If you have backed up to iCloud or PC before, you can get everything back easily. If you didn't back up, then your data is ALREADY lost. It is impossible to recover whatsoever.

Once you forgot iPhone password and want to reset it, you can follow the following steps:

Step 1: Connect iPhone to computer via a USB cable> launch iTunes on computer.

Step 2: When you launch iTunes, it will automatically sync your device. But if it doesn't, you need to do it on your own, which means you have to do the following steps: Click "View"> "Show Sidebar", then your iPhone will be displayed in the left sidebar.

Step 3: When iTunes have synced and backed up your device, please go to "Device" in the sidebar. Then click on Summary tab. Next go to "Restore iPhone" button.

Step 4: Finally, click on "Restore Backup" to restore iPhone from iTunes backup files and then you can reset your iPhone passcode.

If you have backed up data to iTunes previously, you can use recovery tool to extract data and save them to your computer.

Forgot iPhone passcode? Try resetting your iPhone by pressing both the Home button and the Power button together for 30 seconds. When it asks you if you want to slide to turn it off, ignore this message and KEEP holding.

Finally, the screen will go off and your iPhone will be re-setting. Wait for a couple of minutes and turn it on the usual way.

If it still asks you for the passcode, the only way to get back into the iPhone is to plug it into the original computer with the original itunes and press "restore".

Either remember the passcode or as tom says you need to enter dfu mode then iTunes will let you restore and yes you will lose everything that's on the device unless you made a iCloud or iTunes backup before you forgot the code

Unless you remember passcode there is no way to save you data don't be fooled by downloading data recovery software because it won't work..

Hi guys, I have a question to ask: I remember my passcode now that my iphone is disabled. Is there any way for me to be able to input the passcode one more time? Thank you.

by

I also remember my passcode, but iPhone is already locked. Is there a way to just unlock it instead of restoring and loosing all data? I typed the pin code by mistake, instead of the unlock code. Thanks a lot!

If you restore from iCloud backup the apps will be automatically downloaded. If you restore from iTunes backup the apps and music have to be in the iTunes library since synced media like apps and music are not included in the backup of the iOS device that iTunes makes.
