How to Reset Your iPhone Without the Password
For iPhones running iOS 15.2 or a later build, Apple offers a Security Lockout system for resetting an iPhone. On the lock screen, enter an incorrect passcode multiple times until you see the "Security Lockout" warning, where an option called Erase iPhone appears in the bottom right corner of the screen.
Tap "Erase [device name]" and repeat the step to confirm that you do, indeed, want to wipe the device. Now, enter your Apple ID to log the device out of your Apple account, and after entering the password, tap on the "Erase [device name]" option one last time to wipe all of the data and reset the phone to its factory default state.
Once the data wipe process is over, the phone will restart and require you to set it up again using your Apple ID credentials. If an iCloud backup exists, the data will be restored during the setup process and a new passcode can be set. Remember, only you as the device’s owner will be allowed to reset your iPhone if you’ve forgotten the password.
