    So, I disabled my iPhone XS until it had the screen where it said iPhone is Disabled, connect to iTunes, ad I found out that, with much searching, I can wipe my iPhone, which would be the easiest way to recover everything because I had my old phone backed up onto another computer. But the issue is that, in order to enter recovery mode, I have to have a trusted computer to connect it to and press a series of buttons. But my phone is brand new. I haven't connected it to any computers yet. Therefore I can't wipe it, can't get it off of the scree that says disabled connect to iTunes. Please help me, I've been trying without luck for hours. Does anyone know how I might possibly wipe my disabled iPhone clean without a trusted computer?????

    I don't understand why you are trying to disable a brand new iPhone, but advise to get help from Apple or the retailer.
