Hi Admin! I use Passcode to secure my iPhone, but I forgot the pass so I entered it incorrectly many times so the device went into disabled mode, so how do I handle this error?
Hello, in the case of setting a password on the iPhone and forgetting the pass, leading to the disabling situation happening to quite a lot of iPhone users, to overcome this situation, you do the following:
Scenario 1: You frequently connect to your computer and have iTunes synced regularly.
Step 1 : Connect phone to computer via cable and launch iTunes.
Step 2 : Press and hold the power button and Home button at the same time until the screen lights up, the connection message is also displayed on the computer.
Step 3 : Select “Restore iPhone” or “Restore iPhone“, after the restore is complete, you will use the phone as usual without entering the passcode.
Case 2: No synchronous time.
Step 1 : Power off the iPhone.
Step 2 : Launch iTunes, the computer will show a notification that iPhone is in disable mode.
Step 3 : Put iPhone into DFU mode (Device Firmware Update) by: When connecting iPhone to computer via USB cable, we press the power + Home button for about 10 seconds, then release the power key and still hold the Home button until a new notification appears on the computer screen. Remove the Home button as soon as a new notification appears. At this point, your phone screen will only be black and not show anything.
If you hold down the Home button for too long, the iPhone may restart. You have to do it again to enter DFU mode one more time.
Step 4: On the computer, the message “iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. You must restore this iPhone before you can use it with iTunes.” you select OK.
Step 5: Click “Restore iPhone” or “Restore iPhone” to start restoring the device.
So we have shown you how to restore iPhone when it is disable, be cautious in the next use.
