When you enter wrong password incorrectly six times, you'll need to erase your device. You can back up your iPhone with iTunes as shown in our tutorial. Then, you need to restore your device. You can learn how to do it in this tutorial. This way, no data will be lost.

If you have not synchronized your device with iCloud or iTunes, then you need to connect your iOS device to your computer. Open iTunes. Press and hold the power and home buttons until you see the recovery mode screen on your smartphone. You will see the option to restore or update the device in iTunes. Click "Restore". iTunes will start resetting your smartphone.
