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 recognized 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 it will prompt you to choose your language, set time and date and other on-screen instructions. After all this, then your device is back to its new state.
