When your iPhone is disabled, you usually don’t need to connect directly to iTunes via a computer. The iPhone usually gives few chances for the user to remember the correct passcode and try again after “X” minutes to unlock the iPhone.

For example, for every 5 wrong passcode attempts, your iPhone will be disabled for 1 minute, and you can try entering the correct passcode again to unlock the device after 1 minute. Likewise, after every 7 wrong password attempts, the iPhone will be disabled for 5 minutes, giving a chance to enter the correct password after 5 minutes. During this time period, the iPhone remains disabled, and it is only when you cannot enter the correct password after the time-lapse that the request to connect to iTunes appears.
