Factory Hard Reset for iPhone 5, 5S, 5C

Last updated on

This video shows you how to hard reset your phone removing everything including the password. This is a useful trick if you have been locked out. It’s also super useful for anyone who just wants to restore their phone back to the way it was when they first got it.

Apple devices are great but compared with Android or Windows they’re very closed down. When something goes wrong, it can be hard to fix the problem as a result. SO use this trick and quickly reset your device.

Note: does not remove Apple ID.
