If you’re logged in to your iCloud account, you can go to Settings > iCloud > Find My iPhone and then turn off Find My iPhone. This will allow you to turn off and reset your device without needing iTunes at all.

The second way is to use the Recovery Mode on your iPhone. To do this, turn off your device and then press and hold the Home button whle connecting it to your computer with a USB cable. Once you’re in Recovery Mode, iTunes will open automatically and you can use it to disable or reset your device as needed.

The third way is to use a third-party tool like dr.fone – iOS System Recovery (from Wondershare). This tool can be used to quickly disable or reset any version of an iPhone without needing iTunes at all. All you need to do is connect the device to your computer with a USB cable and then follow the on-screen instructions for disabling or resetting the device.
