What to do before selling iPhone? Before you sell or trade in your iPhone, you need to back up all the important data to computer or iCloud and remove your login cookies on social platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat etc.

Actually, you should delete everything on iPhone to ensure your personal information won't be used by the next person to own your iPhone. This tutorial will give you the solutions on how to back up iPhone to computer and how to clear iPhone before selling.

How to Delete Everything on iPhone before Selling

The most important part of preparing your iPhone for sale is wiping all of your personal data on iPhone. Don’t ever trade in or give away an iPhone unless you delete everything. What’s more, don’t manually delete photos, music, or other data while signed in your iCloud account, because this also delete the content from iCloud server and other iDevices that share the same iCloud account. Is there any way easier and safer?

Step 1: Go to Settings.

Step 2: Scroll down and tap General> Reset > Erase All Content and settings.


Step 3: Enter your passcode. If you have enabled a passcode (unlock code) you will be prompted for it. And tap “Erase” when the pop-up appears.
