whatyou'll need is a couple things you'll need the device's passcode to unlock itand you'll also need the icloud account password if you don't have that youwon't be able to reset it so if you need to reset that password goto icloud.com and then you can reset your password there now before you eraseeverything on your phone you want to make sure that you have a 

backup ifyou're going to continue using iphone so if you're going from an old phone toa new phone i have other videos to show you how to do that and transfer all ofyour settings including the same app layout and all the app dataand messages and everything else but if you want to just have a backup ingeneral make sure 

that you're either usingitunes on windows itunes on mac on an older mac or you use the finderclick on your device and hit backup now however if you want to back up usingicloud that's even easier as long as you havethe storage available and you do that by going to 

settingsunder settings tap on your name then under your name or whatever phoneyou're on here you want to go to icloud and undericloud down towards the bottom you'll seeicloud backup and under icloud backup tap on this you'll see that it's on andas long as it's backing up everything it will give you the last

and most of the app data aswell so as long as you have that backing upor you've backed up on itunes you should be good to go and onceyou know that you have your information secure we can move on to removingeverything off the device now in order to reset the phone what youwant to do is once you have that

off icloudand disassociate the phone from our account so let's go ahead and scrolldown and all the way at the bottom it sayssign out so we'll tap on sign out now it's saying do you want to keepa copy of your data on this phone and you don't want to do that if you'reerasing the phone so make sure all of these are turned offif you did want to keep this and sign in with another icloud id 

then you wouldleave those on otherwise keep them off and hit sign outand it says are you sure you want to sign out and then go ahead and hit signout and then it says copying icloud datathat's just to the cloud you won't necessarily have that on thisphone and then we'll erase the phone in just a moment once we've signed outnow once you've signed out of the iphone what 

you'll need to do is go down andreset it so under the main settings just scroll downand go to general scroll all the way to the bottom ofgeneral and then you have reset so we'll tap on reset and thenthere's a few options here we want to eraseall content and settings so all of these other things don't mattererase all content and settings and then it's going to ask you for 

the passcodeof the device itself so maybe your touch id wasn't workingit's that same passcode and this will work for face id phones aswell once you've put that passcode in it's asking you if you want to erase itagain it's just a safety check so it says this will delete all media and dataand reset all settings so you want to hit eraseiphone and then you'll have to hit erase iphone againand it will take a moment and the phone will reboot now the same thing appliesto all iphones so 

this is my iphone 11 pro maxand you can see here it says erase iphone if i hit erase and erase againit will wipe the phone so that's how you completely wipe it we'll wait for thisto reboot and you'll see that it's back at thesetup screen now will take a little bit of time toerase and reset and once it's done it will look just like this and you'reat the main startup screen again and so
