How To Factory-Reset Your iPhone or iPad iOS Device




There are various reasons why you may need to factory reset your iPhone or iPad. Reasons arising from slow performance, poor battery performance and other reasons.

Because a factory reset deletes all your files and information, it is recommended that you backup your iPhone or iPad data before wiping it. This article walks you through the whole process of backup and reset.

The specific steps may differ a little bit from one version of iOS to another, so do not panic if one or two steps are missing on your device.

How to reset your iPhone or iPad


  • Backup your device. Using its supplied cable, connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer. When it is recognised by iTunes, click on the left-hand pane to access the Summary screen. Click “Back Up Now” and follow through.
  • Open your device’s Settings menu and follow this path: General -> Reset.
  • Select Erase All Content and Settings. If you have a passcode on your device, you will be required to supply it at this point.
  • Enter your Apple ID password.


After rebooting is complete, the phone will be in its factory state where you have to choose your language, set time and date and other on-screen instructions it may asked of you to set. After doing all that, you can now sell off the device without the fear of exposing your data and information to the new user, or you can as well use the device in its clean new state.
