Having trouble with your iPhone? Resetting it can help get it back to working order without losing any of your important data. Follow this guide to learn how to reset your iPhone without any data loss.
It’s important to know how to reset your iPhone without losing data, especially if you’re selling or giving away the device, or if you’re planning to reset your iPhone to troubleshoot a problem.
Resetting your iPhone to its factory settings will erase all of its content and restore the device to its original condition. It’s important to back up your device before you reset it, so you don’t lose any important files or data.
Step 1: Back Up Your iPhone
The first step in resetting your iPhone is to back up all the data on your device. You can back up your device either with iCloud or iTunes.
Back Up with iCloud: This requires that your device is connected to a Wi-Fi network and that the battery is charged. Go to “Settings” > “iCloud” > “Back Up” and turn on “iCloud Backup”. Once the “Back Up Now” button is activated, tap on it and your device will back up to iCloud.
Back Up with iTunes: To back up your device with iTunes, you must have the latest version of iTunes installed on your computer. Connect your iPhone to your computer, open iTunes and select your device. Then, click the “Back Up Now” button. Once the backup is complete, you can disconnect your device from your computer.
Step 2: Reset Your iPhone
Once you’ve backed up your device, you can reset it to its factory settings.
Erase All Content and Settings: To erase all content and settings from your iPhone, go to “Settings” > “General” > “Reset” > “Erase All Content and Settings”. Your device will then prompt you to enter your passcode or Apple ID password. Once you’ve entered the correct information, your device will begin to factory reset.
Step 3: Restore Your iPhone
Once your device has been reset, you can restore it with the backup you created earlier.
Restore from iCloud: To restore your device from iCloud, go to “Settings” > “General” > “Reset” > “Erase All Content and Settings”. Then, select “Set Up as New iPhone”. When prompted, select “Restore from iCloud Backup”. Then, sign in to iCloud and select the backup you want to restore.
Restore from iTunes: To restore your device from iTunes, connect your iPhone to your computer and open iTunes. Select your device and click the “Restore Backup” button. Then, select the backup you want to restore.
By following the steps outlined above, you can reset your iPhone without losing any data. It’s important to back up your device before resetting it, to ensure that all of your important files and data are preserved. Once you’ve backed up your device, you can reset it and then restore it with the backup you created.
