How to Enable an iPhone When Disabled Without Using iTunes

Last updated on

Forgotten your password? Then you’ll likely have tried and failed to remember/guess it. The result is that you end up locked out!

Luckily the video below will show you how to get back into your phone without needing to wire up to iTunes.

Getting locked out is frustrating – even if it’s only for 30 minutes. It can also land you in trouble if you need to contact someone. A useful tip is to keep your contacts written down somewhere in case you need to resort to the landline. Sometimes going analog has its uses!
