Restoring Your iPhone


Restoring your iPhone is a bit more complicated because if you do it wrong you can seriously mess up your device. By that, I don’t mean brick your device (doing that is very rare). I mean many times people restore their iPhone without doing a backup first. Then when they go to reload all their data on it they find they don’t have any of that data saved.

Another issue arises when people restore their iPhone without dissociating their Apple/iCloud ID from it first and then sell their device. If you don’t disassociate your Apple/iCloud ID first, that iPhone will forever be locked to your Apple/iCloud ID, which means a future owner won’t have full access to it.

With that in mind, here’s how to restore your iPhone:

  1. Choose a backup method. This can be either via iCloud or a local backup on your desktop via iTunes.
    • To backup via iCloud go to Settings > iCloud > Backup. Tap iCloud Backup to turn it on. Tap Back Up Now.
    • To backup via iTunes connect your iPhone to your Mac or PC via its USB cable. In iTunes choose File > Devices > Backup.
  2. Once you’ve backed up your device, now disassociate your Apple/iCloud ID from it. Go to Settings > iCloud, then tap to turn off Find My iPhone.
  3. Now you’re ready to restore your device. Connect your iPhone to your desktop via its USB cable.
  4. When your iPhone appears in iTunes, click on its Summary panel and then click Restore iPhone.
