The issue with “Touch ID passcode forgot” is that it has become a common complaint among iOS device users, and many of us tend to punish ourselves thinking we’re the cause. It’s not your fault that you forgot your iPhone Touch ID passcode; it’s Apple’s fault.
Nevertheless, before we dive into fixing issues relating to “Touch ID passcode forgotten,” we would like to address some of the following confusing questions about Touch ID passcode.
What Happens If iPhone Touch ID Passcode Is Forgotten
When iPhone Touch ID passcode is forgotten, your iPhone can still be accessed by using your finger on the Touch ID. However, if you switch off/on your iPhone, your iPhone passcode will be required before you can access your iPhone. If you’ve forgotten your Touch ID passcode at this point, then you can try the passcode you remember for 6 times, and if any of them doesn’t match your correct passcode, your iPhone will be disabled for 1 minute. The minutes your iPhone will be disabled will increase from 1 minute to several hours/days as you constantly fail to provide the right passcode in previous trials.
How to Unlock iPhone When Touch ID Passcode Wasn’t Accepted

At that case, you can reset your forgotten your Touch ID passcode.
