How to Reset Iphone
Here’s our quick guide on how to factory reset an iPhone so you can ditch the data before passing on your phone. The exact process for doing so may vary slightly depending on which version of Ios your iPhone is running, but it’s essentially the same regardless if you’re performing a factory reset using iTunes or merely your untethered phone. Furthermore, feel free to follow the same directions when performing a factory reset of your iPod Touch, iPad, or iPad Mini.
Click the iTunes menu located on the left side of the main iTunes toolbar, select Check for Updates from the resulting drop-down menu and ensure you have the latest version of iTunes. If not, download and install the latest version thereof. Afterward, connect your iPhone to your computer via USB and click the gray Back Up Now button when viewing the Summary tab for your given device in iTunes. Alternatively, follow our guide on how to use iCloud to back up the device you Apple’s remote servers. Although backing up your device is not necessary, doing so will store your photos, apps, contacts, settings, and other data so you can automatically restore other iOS devices from the backup down the line.
