Solution 4. Forgot iPhone Passcode - Erase with Recovery Mode

In case you have never backed up your iOS device with iTunes or set up the Find My iPhone feature in iCloud, then you can use the recovery mode. This will erase everything on your device and its passcode.

Step 1: Put your iPhone into Recovery Mode.

  • (If you have iPhone X or later, or iPhone 8 or later): Press and release the “Volume Up” button. Then do the same with the Volume down button. Press and hold the side button until your phone goes into Recovery Mode.
  • (If you have iPhone 7 or 7 Plus): Hold the side and volume down buttons simultaneously until the Recovery Mode Screen pops up.
