What If Nothing Shows Up When You Forget the Passcode and Connect iPhone With a Windows Computer

Suppose a scenario:

You’ve forgotten your iPhone passcode and decided to unlock it with a Windows computer. What should you do if nothing shows up when you connect your iPhone to your Windows computer? It only charges instead of connecting, and the iPhone won’t connect to iTunes. Nothing pops up. What happens on earth? In this post, we’ll help you solve the problem. Don’t be frustrated; it’s a common issue for many people.

Through our tests, we’ve identified several possible reasons for failure in unlocking an iPhone passcode on a Windows PC.

The key reasons for the connection failure are related to iTunes.

Here’s what could be happening:

  • iTunes has some issues.
  • iTunes is out of date.
  • iTunes can’t be updated.
  • iTunes is not the latest version from the Apple official.
  • The iPhone is running on the latest iOS versions, which may be beyond the capacity of your current iTunes on PC.
  • iTunes has errors in updating to the latest versions on Windows.
  • Other unknown reasons.

If you have any one or any combination of the above issues or any unknown reasons not listed, you can try fixing the issue first, and then connect your iPhone. However, if you fail or spend too much time on it, we advise you to abandon connecting the iPhone to iTunes.
