If you have forgotten your password, you are locked out of the iPhone. Unfortunately, it is not possible to recover the password yourself. It's gone. But not everything is lost. In such cases, your biggest concern is the data. What if you end up losing all your precious pictures and messages? Don't worry, there's a safe way.
You can still restore your iPhone to the state that it was before you were locked. And you won't even lose any of your data in the process. The process is going to be a bit complicated. You must delete the phone and then restore it again. But you will be able to recover the data from a backup.
The Catch …
Even though the iPhone is locked, you can still back it up. This is the only official way to recover iPhone without losing the data.
Don't worry, as long as you have backed up your iPhone to a computer once, and you've added your Mac or PC to the trusted list of devices, you can back up your iPhone again without unlocking it first. However, if you have not backed up your iPhone to a Mac or PC before, this method does not work.
Step 2 : Open iTunes and select your device from the top left menu.
Step 3 : Just wait while iTunes starts syncing the device automatically.
Wait for the backup to complete. Return to the main menu and you will see the timestamp for the latest backup. Verify that it is for the backup you just made.
If your backup does not work automatically, you may have turned on a feature that prevents iOS devices from automatically syncing. Open iTunes Preferences go to Devices and uncheck Prevent iPod, iPhone and iPads from synchronizing automatically “/>
