If you have decided to sell or give away your iPhone or iPad, there is a procedure to completely erase your personal data from your device. The first thing to do is to back up the contents of your device you can watch the previous video I made available to you to save to either iCloud or iTunes, you have a choice. The idea is to restore this backup to your new device when you are separated from it If you are using an Apple Watch paired with your iPhone you have to end the pairing, open the application “Watch” press “My watch” you will press the button “i” and you will choose to “Break the Apple Watch”. The second very important thing, I would say almost the most important, after the backup is to unlink your iPhone or iPad from your iCloud account, you go to “Settings” you press your name>iCloud and you will start with disable iMessages, if you switch to a non-Apple branded phone. Go back and here at the very bottom you have “Logout”. When you activate the disconnection of your device, it will no longer be linked to your Apple account, you will be disconnected from the iTunes Store, the App Store, iCloud of course, but also the function “Locate my device”. Go to “Logout” and enter the password for your Apple ID. Do “Disable”. Since you want to sell or donate your device, you do not need to keep a copy of the data. Make “Disconnect” here and validate. There, he is removing all iCloud data from my device, that does not prevent that there is also local data that we will erase later. Here, as you can see, I’m not connected to my Apple account, nor to my iCloud account, App Store, etc. on this device. To reset it and restore it to factory so that your buyer found a brand new iPhone, we will go in “General” and we will go down on “Reset”, we will choose “Erase content and settings”. If you choose “Reset all settings” your files and your personal data will still be there. Choose “Clear content and settings”. Enter your code and confirm by pressing “Clear iPhone” (or “Clear iPad” if it’s an iPad “) I will not do it here but especially before doing this manipulation, make sure you have made a backup! I really insist because if you delete your data without saving them, they are lost forever. Make a backup beforehand. Once the reset is over, it takes about 15 minutes, your iPhone will start with the choice
language, country, etc. you will let the buyer configure his phone as if it were new and you, in the meantime, you can turn it off and put it back in its box until the day of the sale.
