The Problem – Forgot your Passcode

So you have restarted your iPhone and you have forgot your Passcode.

This can be really frustrating however we should be able to step you through this problem.

The first and easiest thing to do is to try and remember the passcode. This might seem obvious, but it might be easier than wiping your device which is what we will have to do to get rid of it.

Step 2 – Computer with iTunes

Next up you will need a computer with iTunes. This is because you will actually need to restore the iOS software on your phone. Kind of like reloading the iPhone so it is the new as if you just brought it from Apple.
