iPhone Backup Disabled, Get Password To Unlock

My iPhone got disabled by typing wrong password. Now its showing disabled connect to iTunes. I did the backup and restore. At last its showing can’t backup since it’s locked by a password. So need to unlock password. How to receive it?

For encrypt iPhone backup, first, it is just but a password on the backup so not anyone can use it. Every time you connect your iPhone to iTunes it makes a backup.

Second, updating iTunes, or updating your software on you iPhone does not, and should never permanently delete your songs. What it does when you update, it has to put new software onto your iPhone, but it can't just add it on, instead it deletes the software, and then installs the new software. In this process, yes everything on your iPhone is deleted, but remembers that backup? It loads everything back, on top of the new software from that backup. So everything should be the same.

If you feel that it isn't the same, then connect your iPhone, let it do its thing with iTunes, check it while keeping it connected, if it still doesn't feel right, under the iPhone tab to your left in iTunes, click "Restore iPhone" or something about restore. This should fix any issues.

How to remove encrypt backup password for my iPad?

I am relatively new to iPad and iTunes. As I initially purchased my iPad Mini, I was using syncing/backups via iTunes. During those times, I created an encrypted backup and tried out the entire process of recovering via the backup. Back then, I made no note in the password that I used. Given that I have my iPad build the way in which I want, I attempt to support it via iTunes. The sync and backup appear to finish correctly; however, easily attempt to restore through the backup or perhaps make an effort to backup without a password, iTunes appears to require the initial password which I used by my initial practice sessions. I need to break the encryption on any backup. I only would like to backup the current state of my iPad so maintain my backups to come.

I did try many ways for further operations without the previous forgotten iPad backup password. But things are not easy.

I've tried installing iTunes on different computers, deleting all previous backups, and seeking to backup with no password and have absolutely been unsuccessful as of yet. So it appears that if you ever have used a password to backup your iPhone and you forget it prior to taking off the password protection, the only course of action to create (and restore from) an iPad backup is to start from scratch with a complete wipe of your iPad's settings. But at least you can move music, video, apps, and contacts to your computer first and restore them afterwards.
