Way 4. Reset Your iPhone without Passcode and Computer [100% Working]

If your iPhone is running iOS 15, all you need is your iPhone. But if your iPhone is running iOS 14 or earlier versions, you have to unlock your iPhone using another iPhone or iPad.

After resetting, all the existing content and settings on your iPhone will be wiped off, including your forgotten passcode. Therefore, you can regain access to your iPhone without passcode.

Before we start, make sure you have an iTunes/iCloud backup to restore from, otherwise, you’ll permanently lose the data.

For iOS 15:

Step 1. Press Erase iPhone on the bottom right of the screen.
