If, unfortunately, you don't have a computer around or iTunes on your computer somehow can't recognize the iPhone, what can you do to unlock the disabled iPhone? Don't worry. This article will guide you through how to bypass disabled iPhone without computer.
iCloud and Find My app won't be effective if your iPhone's Find My feature is not activated before you are locked out. You can skip these methods and use an iPhone passcode unlocker to bypass a disabled iPhone.
Why Is an iPhone Disabled
Your iPhone shows an error message "iPhone is disabled" after you enter the wrong passcode on your iPhone lock screen too many times, usually 6 consecutive unsuccessful passcode attempts. That could unintentionally occur if you enter the incorrect passcode when the device is in your pocket or if you forget the correct iPhone screen passcode.
This is a security feature on your iPhone to prevent someone else from unlocking it when the iPhone is lost or stolen. The operating system disables your iPhone and protects your privacy after many incorrect passcode entries. Similar alerts include "iPhone unavailable" and "Security Lockout". If you continue entering the wrong passcode, your iPhone might be disabled for hours and even years.

If you need to unlock your disabled iPhone urgently but don't have easy access to a computer to use iTunes, you can use any internet-capable device to enter your iCloud account. Apple adds the Find My service to iCloud, allowing you to track and remotely reset your iPhone and other supported devices there.
How to bypass disabled iPhone without a computer via iCloud:
Step 1. Open a browser on an iPhone, tablet, or Android phone and go to iCloud's official website.
Step 2. Sign in with the same Apple ID on the iPhone that has been disabled.
Step 3. On the homepage, select Find My to open it.
Step 4. Click on All Devices at the top of the Find My window to find a list of all devices connected to the same Apple ID.
Step 5. Select the disabled iPhone from the list.
Step 6. Select Erase iPhone from the menu.
Your iPhone will be automatically reset to factory settings and restart like a brand-new phone. Just follow the onscreen setup steps on your iPhone and the "iPhone is disabled" has been removed.
If the Find My feature has been enabled on your iPhone before its disabled mode locks you out, another effective way to unlock your disabled iPhone without a computer is to use the Find My app, which lets you track and share the location of an Apple asset or other supported third-party accessories. You can also use it to bypass a disabled iPhone by resetting the system data including the screen passcode.
How to bypass iPhone disabled without a computer via Find My app
Step 1. Make sure you have an iPad or another iPhone. Borrow a friend's device if you don't have one.
Step 2. Go to the Settings app, click his or her name at the top of the screen, and scroll down to select Log out of the current Apple ID.
Step 3. Log in to the device with your Apple ID on the inaccessible iPhone.
Step 4. Open the Find My app.
Step 5. Tap on the Devices at the bottom of the screen to see all connected devices.
Step 6. Swipe up the window and tap Erase This Device at the bottom of the screen.
This option will factory reset your disabled iPhone, allowing you to reset a new screen passcode to unlock your iPhone. If you have any iPhone backups like iCloud or iTunes backups, you can restore your iPhone after the factory reset.
The above parts talks about two practical methods of iPhone disabled bypass without computer. However, neither of them will work if the Find My iPhone feature has been disabled.
