What is the right way to completely erase an iPhone? I heard the default easing option is not secure.

Since you don't want whomever gets your iPhone to have access to your personal data you'll need to wipe the phone clean of all of your personal data. Follow these instructions to clear the data off of your phone.

1. Tap the settings (gear icon) from the home screen (or whatever page it happens to be located on your iPhone).

2. Tap the "General" settings menu item.

3. Choose the "Reset" menu item.

4. Tap on the "Erase All Content and Settings" menu item.

But this won't completely erase your data from iPhone, and the data can be easily recovered by some data recovery tool.

So, I suggest you try Safewiper iPhone data eraser to wipe your iPhone clean without recovery before selling.

As I said in my last mail, you can wipe your all content and settings by performing the "erase all content and settings", but this will not erase your data from iPhone permanently, may be easily recoverable.

Safewiper is a professional data wipe software which can help you erase everything from iPhone.

Hello,

Can you please tell us what exactly you are going to do once your iPhone is reset?

So I can explain it in a better way.

Thank you,
Tandy
