To reset your iPhone is the last resort option and one you should only take in exceptional circumstances such as when you’re selling the device or if you’re sure nothing else will fix whatever issue you’re having with the device. The method we have described below works on all the latest iPhones such as iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone X, etc. In case your device is not responding or your iPhone is frozen, you might want to consider a hard reboot instead. That will restart your iPhone without erasing data. But if you know resetting your iOS device is the only option, here’s how to proceed and get it to its factory state.
Go to Settings > General > Reset. Here you will see several options. To reset your iPhone or iPad, the option you want to select is called Erase All Content and Settings. You may see a prompt that asks you to update your iCloud backup before erasing. You should tap Back Up Then Erase. If you don’t want to update your iCloud backup, tap Erase Now. You will see the same option once more and will have to enter your passcode. Once you do these things, you will be able to reset your iPhone or iPad.
