Can’t we reset ?
You can reset your passcode if you know your passcode. But if you’ve forgotten your passcode, then you have to recover your account. Recovery can take roughly three days to three weeks. I’m in recovery.
Went through the same thing a few years ago. That’s why my code is a bunch of expletives directed at apple. Not going to forget this one...
better yet, use a password vault or worse case a paper in a filing cabinet. Oh and be sure to backup your disc drives. We all know what to do, we just don't always do it, until it bites us in the ass.
Update: @bixby ftw. Serendipitously, I located my passcode on an old piece of paper that has somehow followed me through two moves. This allowed me to reset my passcode and, finally, set up my new iPad Pro.
