How to erase iPhone data?

Erasing iPhone data is extremely simple when you have the iPhone with you.

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Then, click on General>Reset>Erase all content and settings.
  3. If prompted, enter your Apple ID password or iPhone Password.
  4. Then, wait for your phone to restart. The device’s data would have been wiped out completely then.

Note that erasing content and settings on iPhone does not erase the data from your iCloud. It just erases the data that you have on your device.

How to erase iPhone data remotely?

It is possible to erase iPhone data remotely using the Find My iPhone feature. This comes in handy when your iPhone is stolen or lost. However, to erase iPhone data using the Find My iPhone feature, you must be logged into your account.

  1. Open the browser on your computer and visit iCloud.com.
  2. There, log in using your Apple ID and Password.
  3. Now, click on Find iPhone>Your iPhone>Erase iPhone.
  4. Then, follow the instructions and confirm to erase.

If your iPhone is on and has an active internet connection, all the data will be erased even when the device is locked. But if your iPhone is off or is in Airplane mode, the data will get erased the moment it connects to the internet.
