Is your iPhone throwing tantrums after updating to the latest iOS version? Fret not. It happens to many of us. And thankfully, resetting your iPhone will most likely fix your problem.

It’s pretty standard for iPhone and iPad devices to act wonky after a while. And when you update it to the latest iOS version, things mismatch and your iPhone starts to show problems out of nowhere.

You can reset your iPhone from the device settings or through iTunes on your PC. We recommend doing a reset via device settings as it ensures that the iPhone wasn’t forced reset via external programs.

How to Reset iPhone

  1. Make sure you backup your iPhone via iTunes or iCloud.
  2. Go to Settings » General » Reset.
  3. Select Erase All Content and Settings.

  4. If you’ve iCloud enabled, you’ll get a pop-up to Finish Uploading Then Erase, if documents and data aren’t uploaded to iCloud. Select it.
  5. Enter your Passcode and Restrictions Passcode (if asked).
  6. Finally, tap Erase iPhone to reset it.

Hot Tip: If the purpose for resetting your iPhone was to fix a problem, then we recommend you set up your device as new after the reset.

If you restore your iPhone from an iTunes or iCloud backup, the chances are your iPhone issue(s) might recur. Though it is not always the case and you can keep restoring as the first option. if the problem doesn’t fix, then reset again and do not restore from a backup this time.
