My iPhone screen broke but I know my passcode.

Is there anyway I can enter my passcode from my Mac? If yes, what app/software?

  1. I already deleted my backup (iCloud) due to space, so I need to back it up before I wipe it. Can someone guide me through the process or a share a viable link? Apple Support Communities is too ambiguous for me.
  2. This image seems relevant:

My screen is not functioning. I've tried iExplorer/iBrowser, all to no avail. I need an app/software to control my iPhone from my Mac.

    AFAIK, There isn't any way you can do that from a Mac. – Jash Jacob May 18 '17 at 11:18

    I've voted to reopen this, as I think the question is clear enough - though I still think the answer will be "you're right out of luck" – Tetsujin May 18 '17 at 13:53

Solution 2: Bluetooth keyboard

If you had connected a bluetooth keyboard to your iPhone before you can use it to enter your iPhone's passcode.
