Hi Shaktikumar. There are several options. If you have a Mac, or a Windows PC plug your iPhone into the computer, and change the passcode from there. On the Mac, it's in iTunes, after you plug in your iPhone, go to iPhone settings on the computer, and there will be an option for changing the passcode. On other computers, I have no idea. I only have a Mac. If you don't, have a computer, the only option is to do a factory reset to your iPhone. That is, as far as I know. I'm not sure if there are other options. Hope this helps.

Do you have touch ID enabled? If so, you won't need to worry about changing your passcode.

Got my phone restored through ITune. Thanks to Mr. BigPawedBear and Igna.

Now that you have your iPhone restored, this is just a suggestion. you could set the touch ID so if you forget your passcode again, you can just unlock your phone with your fingerprint. Just a suggestion.

Yes Igna. I have set the touch ID and hope that I will have no such problem in the future. Really thankyou so much.

Though the touch ID thing can be great, still make sure to remember the code to unlock the phone. You'll need the code every time the phone restarts for almost any reason, including manual power off. Also, as it seems many folks aren't the most fond of iTuns, you might want !make sure you have a trusted computer despite any misgivings.
