How to Completely Erase iPhone Before Selling

After years of usage, your iPhone has begun to look a bit dull now. So, you’ve decided to sell it out and upgrade to an all-new smartphone.

When it comes to sell your iPhone, you can't just power it down, take out the SIM card, and hope everything will be okay. There's valuable data on your iPhone, and you need to get rid of it. Completely erasing or wiping data on iPhone is the right way to reduce the risk of personal data falling into the wrong hands.

Here, we are talking about two ways to erase iPhone before selling.

Way 1. How to Erase All Data on iPhone Through Settings APP(Recoverable)

As long as you use a passcode, iOS devices are hardware encrypted. That means making your data absolutely inaccessible is as simple as throwing away the encryption key. iOS will still erase everything, however, and return you to the setup process, so that you have a nice, clean device to start over with or sell.

Simple Steps to erase all data from your iPhone:

  • Launch the Settings app from the Home screen of your iPhone or iPad.
  • Now tap on General.
  • Scroll all the way to the bottom and tap on Reset.
  • Tap on Erase All Content and Settings.
  • tap settings

  • Tap on Erase iPhone.
  • Tap on Erase iPhone again to confirm.
  • erase iPhone

  • Enter your Passcode.
  • Enter your Apple ID password to turn off Activate Lock and remove the device from Find my iPhone.
  • enter password

Once you’ve done this, the iPhone will power up as though it’s just come out of the box.
