Method 2: Disable Passcode for iOS 7 Using Recovery Mode

"iTunes could not connect to the [device] because it is locked with a passcode. You must enter your passcode on the [device] before it can be used with iTunes."
"You haven't chosen to have [device] trust this computer"
- Hold down the Power button and the Home Button at the same time until your device turns off.
- Press and hold the Home button and connect the device to the other end of the USB cable attached to your computer. The device should turn on.
- Continue holding the Home button until a window pops up in iTunes. iTunes will alert you that it has detected a device in recovery mode. Click OK, and then restore the device.
