If you put the wrong password or passcode six times in your iDevices like iPhone, iPad, or iPod, your device will enter disable mode. This helps your device to be protected against any unauthorized access, but if you have forgotten your own passcode and passwords, then it can be problematic.
After 1 minute, the disable mode is exit, but it you continuously enter wrong passcode, you can face further issues.
If Settings -> Passcode -> Erase Data is switched ON, all of your device data will be erased from after 10 attempts entering the failed passcode.
The iPhone will re enter the disable mode itself even if you have switched off Erase Data option. At this moment, you must know how to get help and exit disable mode.
