IPHONE - Restore Your iPhone

There are a couple of different reasons you’d want to restore your iPhone, whether to resolve a stability problem or simply prepare it prior to selling or donating it. Note that performing a restore will completely wipe the device of songs, videos, contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data and files you’ve added; your restored iPhone will be factory fresh.

Start by making sure your computer is running the latest version of iTunes. Apple’s iTunes software automatically checks for version updates when you start it, but if you want to check manually, click Help from the top of the iTunes interface and then select Check For Updates. The software will display a pop-up informing you either that you currently have the latest version or that a new version is available. Click the Download iTunes button and follow the onscreen prompts to complete the operation.

Next, connect your iPhone to your Mac or PC, and then select it in iTunes. If your iPhone is frozen and iTunes fails to recognize the device at this point, press and hold the Home and power buttons simultaneously for roughly 10 seconds, then release the power button while still holding the Home button; this puts your iPhone in DFU (Device Firmware Upgrade) mode and iTunes should detect your iPhone. Next, select the Summary tab (in DFU mode Summary tab may be the only available tab), click Restore, and then follow the onscreen prompts.

You may be prompted to back up your settings; it’s a good idea to do this prior to initiating the restore. Once the restore is complete, iTunes will give you two options—Set Up As A New iPhone or Restore From The Backup Of—followed by a list of dated backups in a drop-down menu. Click the radio button adjacent to the option you want (and select the dated restore if you chose the Restore From The Backup option) and click Continue.
