So quite, unfortunately, in such a typical case, there is only a disabled iPhone from which the photos can be restored only with iTunes. So, here the take-home-point is that the user loses his data, including his apps, the data of those apps, his iPhone contacts, photos, audio/music and everything that was residing on his iPhone.
