Sometimes it happens that you forget your passcode and you are not able to crack it. Now, what to do? Every problem has a solution, you just have to find the best way out. One way out is to reinstate the iPhone but the problem in restoring is you will be losing all your data. So, for this, you just have to read this article in which I am going to write some way outs which are complex ones but I assure you that you will not lose your data and this will help you restore your iPhone as well.
To do so, you just need an iMac or a PC in which you have backed up your iPhone once in the past. If you haven’t done that, this method won’t work because your iPhone needs to be added in the trusted devices list in your PC.
Step 1: Plug in your iPhone with iMac or PC with the help of lightning cable.
Step 2: Launch iTunes menu and choose your iPhone from the list which you can find on top left corner of your computer screen.
Step 3: Once you select your device, your iMac will automatically begin syncing your iPhone with the PC. Wait until it is done. You can navigate to Main Menu to find the time of the latest backup taken.
In case, the backup has not started automatically, then it is possible that you have activated the feature which stops the iOS devices to sync automatically. Open iTunes preferences >devices and then uncheck the option that says “Prevent iPads, iPhods and iPhones from syncing automatically“.
