Although it can be a hassle, It sometimes becomes necessary to reset our smart phones back to the factory default settings.
Let’s face it, sometimes the operating system or an app gets so messed up that a factory reset is the only viable option for fixing the problem without sending the phone off or hiring a tech to fix it for us.
It’s also a good idea to reset your phone before giving it away or selling it to a third party, even if the recipient is someone you trust.
It’s not difficult at all to reset an Android phone or iPhone back to its factory default settings. Here’s how to do it:
First, backup all the data on your phone that you’ll want to restore after you perform the reset, then continue as directed below depending on your phone type.
Tap Settings > Privacy > Factory data reset > Reset phone > Erase everything
1 – Tap Settings > General> Reset > Erase All Content and Settings
2 – Enter your iPhone’s passcode, then tap Erase iPhone
