Hard Reset iPhone 6S/6/5S/5C/5/4S/4, iPad, iPod Touch to Factory Settings



Have you forgotten your iPhone, iPad, or iPad Touch password? Is your iPhone is disabled? If so, this video will demonstrate how to reset your iOS device to factory default settings, also known as a “hard reset”.  Below are the specific steps you will follow:

  1. Power off your device
  2. Connect a “Lightning” USB cable to your computer
  3. Press and hold the “Home” button, while connecting the “Lightning” USB cable into your iOS device
  4. Continue pressing the “Home” button until an “iTunes” notification appears on the screen
  5. Switch over to your computer
  6. A message should have popped up that states “There is a problem with the iPhone…”
  7. Click “Restore”
  8. A message asking “Are you sure you want to restore…” should pop up
  9. Click “Restore and Update”
  10. Wait while your device reboots and the restore finishes
  11. Run through the setup process
  12. Once you reach the “Apps & Data” setup, you have three options:
    • “Restore from iCloud backup” if you have one
    • “Restore from iTunes backup” if you have one
    • “Set Up as New Phone” if you don’t have an iCloud or iTunes backup, from which to restore
  13. Finish the setup process

Note: This procedure will wipe ALL existing data and settings on your device so if you need anything restored, you will have to have an iTunes or iCloud backup to restore.
