Method 1 – How To Properly Reset Iphone To Factory Default

Hi everyone aaron here for zollotech and i want to show you how to reset your iphone to factory default. Meaning that it will be just like it was when you took it out of the box for the first. Time and so this will help you erase all data from it disassociate it from your account and make it. So the next person that either purchases it or that you give it to or maybe youre returning it can.

Sign in without having to sign in to find my friends or any of those accounts because it wont be. Locked to your account so in order to do this properly what youll need is a couple things youll need. The devices passcode to unlock it and youll also need the icloud account password if you dont have that you. Wont be able to reset it so if you need to reset that password go to icloud.com and then you. Can reset your password there now before you erase everything on your phone you want to make sure that you.

Have a backup if youre going to continue using iphone so if youre going from an old phone to a. New phone i have other videos to show you how to do that and transfer all of your settings including. The same app layout and all the app data and messages and everything else but if you want to just. Have a backup in general make sure that youre either using itunes on windows itunes on mac on an older. Mac or you use the finder click on your device and hit backup now however if you want to back.

Up using icloud thats even easier as long as you have the storage available and you do that by going. To settings under settings tap on your name then under your name or whatever phone youre on here you want. To go to icloud and under icloud down towards the bottom youll see icloud backup and under icloud backup tap. On this youll see that its on and as long as its backing up everything it will give you the. Last successful backup below and as long as its backed up youre good to go that will back up not.

Only your settings but your messages your mail settings you may have to enter a few passwords and things in. The future but it will back up even the layout of your apps and most of the app data as. Well so as long as you have that backing up or youve backed up on itunes you should be good. To go and once you know that you have your information secure we can move on to removing everything off. The device now in order to reset the phone what you want to do is once you have that information.

Go into settings and then at the top youll have your name or someone elses name whoevers it is tap. On the name here and go down to find my we need to turn off find my if its on. So tap on find my and youll see it says find my iphone and its on on my device so. I need to turn this off now in order to turn this off i need my icloud password so go. Ahead and tap on find my iphone and then turn off find my iphone it will pop up asking for.

Your apple id password once you put this in it will turn it off now that find my iphone is. Off we want to remove it from our account as well this will make it easier in the future unless. Youre setting it up for yourself so lets go ahead and do that so well go back now once youve. Turned off find my iphone on the same account page we need to scroll to the bottom to turn off. Icloud and disassociate the phone from our account so lets go ahead and scroll down and all the way at.

The bottom it says sign out so well tap on sign out now its saying do you want to keep. A copy of your data on this phone and you dont want to do that if youre erasing the phone. So make sure all of these are turned off if you did want to keep this and sign in with. Another icloud id then you would leave those on otherwise keep them off and hit sign out and it says. Are you sure you want to sign out and then go ahead and hit sign out and then it says.

Copying icloud data thats just to the cloud you wont necessarily have that on this phone and then well erase. The phone in just a moment once weve signed out now once youve signed out of the iphone what youll. Need to do is go down and reset it so under the main settings just scroll down and go to. General scroll all the way to the bottom of general and then you have reset so well tap on reset. And then theres a few options here we want to erase all content and settings so all of these other.

Things dont matter erase all content and settings and then its going to ask you for the passcode of the. Device itself so maybe your touch id wasnt working its that same passcode and this will work for face id. Phones as well once youve put that passcode in its asking you if you want to erase it again its. Just a safety check so it says this will delete all media and data and reset all settings so you. Want to hit erase iphone and then youll have to hit erase iphone again and it will take a moment.

And the phone will reboot now the same thing applies to all iphones so this is my iphone 11 pro. Max and you can see here it says erase iphone if i hit erase and erase again it will wipe. The phone so thats how you completely wipe it well wait for this to reboot and youll see that its. Back at the setup screen now will take a little bit of time to erase and reset and once its. Done it will look just like this and youre at the main startup screen again and so this is where.

You can set your phone up we just press home to open on this phone and well start set it. Up just like it was new you can hand this to someone else to use give it to someone else. Sell it return it either way all of your information has been removed from the phone and its good to. Go it wont be associated with your icloud account and it wont be activation locked or anything like that so. Youll be good to use it hand it to someone else and youre all set and if you dont have.

Of your data off of it or maybe give it to someone else this will fully wipe it and be. Just like it was when you first pulled it out of the box now before we do that i would.

Recommend you backup in order to do that let me show you here go to settings and under settings you. Want to scroll down until you get to icloud under icloud scroll down to backup and under backup it will. Tell you the last time it was backed up now this phone was backed up on 12 for last time. So we want to just go ahead and hit backup you may need to plug it in you also should. Be on wi-fi as well i dont have a sim card in here because like many of you ill probably.

Want to get rid of it or whatever well one wipe the phone so you can remove your sim card. You will need a sim card to activate a new phone now by backing this up this will allow us. To restore this on to any other phone as long as we have an os thats the same or newer. So if this is ios 8 or newer on it you can restore that if it has ios 9 youll. Need i oh s9 or newer on the new phone so well wait for this to backup and then well.

Come back and ill show you how to actually wipe the phone the backup took about five to ten minutes. And you can see it says backup now last backup 522 its 524 so were good to go so next. We need to go back and for those of you that wondered this will back up everything you have turned. On here so if youre worried about losing anything as long as its here and this includes not just these. Things but it also includes your messages as well your music if you bought it in itunes will be backed.

Up through itunes and you can just redownload it if you didnt youll have to resync otherwise thats what you. Have setup and this is what it will backup it will also backup contacts and things too but i get. Those questions a lot on some other videos but what youll need to do first is turn off find my. Iphone now you can go back and reset it but it will prompt you to turn this off if you. Havent already so since were here turn off find my iphone flip that off and then we want to go.

Enter the password its turning off find my iphone now its off and we can restore it so just go. Back go back again and then you want to go to general so this is just settings and then general. Once youre in general scroll all the way to the bottom go to reset and reset all settings so you. Can do reset all settings or you could do any of these things in particular we want to erase everything. So erase all content and settings it wants my password once you put the password in it pops up this.

Little dialog and says are you sure you want to do this hit a race itll pop up one more. Time and say are you really sure you want to do this so before we do this we can cancel. Or hit a race and it will fully reset and when it comes back up everything will be wiped not. One thing will be on here and ill show you what it looks like when it comes back up this. Will take probably another five minutes or longer it depends on the storage this is a 64 gigabyte iphone 6s.

Theres others that are 128 and those could take a little bit longer so it depends or even less with. A 16 gigabyte so well wait for this and well come back its 526 now so well see what it. Is when this restores the phone has reset and everything has been wiped off of it so youll get this. Screen where its saying hello and all these different languages just swipe and youll see that it goes right to. The set up to select your language or whatever you want to do and this is just as though you.

Bought it and took it out of the box for the first time so you can securely just shut it. Down and know that all of your data is wiped off of it and no one can access that it. Wipes all of your data all of your fingerprints everything is off of this and if you even restore from. A backup youll even have to put in your fingerprints again so all of that fingerprint information is gone its. All wiped off and thats pretty much all there is to it now if youre looking on how to restore.
