Hello all. I am very new to the site. so I really don't know where to put this question. so sorry in advance.
I'm looking for a recommendation for a specific iPhone data recovery software, preferably one that someone has had success retrieving photos with after performing a factory reset on an iPhone without a backup.

Embarrassing backstory- I changed the passcode on my iPhone 6s a couple of days ago. Right after changing it I tried testing the new passcode and was not able to unlock my phone using that code. I frantically tried a few more times in disbelief that I had entered the new code incorrectly or somehow mistaken what I thought I changed it to, and ended up deactivating my touch ID by doing so. I attempted several more versions of what I thought I could have possibly changed it to, got the "1 minute/5 minute/15 minute/1 hour" disabled warnings, and am now at the point where I have one attempt left at guessing this fricken passcode before my phone is disabled indefinitely.

I spoke with Apple support and they informed me that I will have to do a factory reset in order to remove the passcode. I'm fine with wiping the phone, I just want to be able to retrieve my photos/videos as I have a four-year-old and a six-year-old (even more reason why I should have been utilizing the cloud, I know, I know), but there are so many data recovery software options and I'm leery of what is legit and what isn't.

Unfortunately, the factory reset is my only option since I was not using iCloud, and I did not connect my phone to my laptop at any point over the past two years that I've had it, therefore never backing it up to iTunes. Yes, I know, I'm kicking myself for it now.

If anyone has a recommendation for any data recovery software program they have used and had success with I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!
