How to Hard Reset Your iPhone

Last updated on

This quick tutorial will talk you through how to hard reset your iOS device. This will work on any Apple device (except maybe Apple watch) and will put you back to factory settings right away.

Why might you want to factory reset your phone?

There are plenty of reasons but common ones include: selling the phone on, trying to fix a phone that has crashed, giving a phone to a friend or getting through a password lock. Factory resetting can also be a great way to get your phone running the same as it did when you first bought it – if you find it’s slowing down gradually over time, then doing a hard reset will help you to experience it as new again!

I recommend using….. *US.unlock-iphoneFREE*.*com* …Yesterday, I used
this website to unlock my iPhone 5S. I was depressed at the first but they
unlocked my iPhone 5S in a couple hours for free! I’m so glad and grateful
right now. I’m not a spammer though, I’m trying to help out!

Susie Gardner says:

Great method bro but the easiest way ever is:
Just fill form and they will send your unlock code.

mw3051 says:

if you put down the crack pipe maybe you could make a video that was useful
to someone.

13 seconds of bullshit intro for a 2 minute video that itself is useless.

Thanks so much! I hope that everybody that reads this comment before making
your own video similar to this knows that your teaching people to steal
your phone. My iPhone 4S was stolen today and I’m watching as this person
is looking up how to reset my phone! I’m a Type 1 Diabetic and my LIFE
depends on that device!!! You have just killed me. Not socially, not
mentally, but knowledgeably. Everything I needed to know about my MEDICAL
CONDITION was on that device and my way to reach my emergency contacts in
case something happens and you just told them how to erase it. Luckily, my
Mother is buying me a new one as the person who stole it, also learned how
to turn the GPS off!!! So, I need to go to sleep for school in the morning,
stressed that I won’t have my essential contact ability. Thank you, one
more time.
