How to Hard Reset an iPhone 4, 4s, 5, 5s With Passcode

Last updated on

This video shows you have to hard reset an iPhone that has a password. This gives you the ability to set a phone back to its factory settings and to use it as though it were brand new – but to do so you don’t need to get through the passcode first.

This is particularly useful for users who may have forgotten their passcodes or who have purchased second hand phones. The process is simple and easy to follow, so watch and learn and you’ll be able to get your phone running as new again in no time!
