If your iPhone/iPad is disabled, you cannot bypass the passcode and use the device. Unfortunately, in most cases, you cannot unlock your iPhone using iTunes.

LockWiper can remove the Apple ID from your device, and then you can use a new ID.

Bypass Screen Passcode/Touch of Face ID

If you don’t remember the passcode, the device is disabled, or you have bought a secondhand iPhone/iPad with a screen passcode, Touch ID, or Face ID, you can’t use your device unless you bypass it using powerful unlocking software.

Bypass MDM
