This technique has been successful for a large number of people. The significant penalty, though, is that you would have lost ALL of your data. All of your contacts, photos, texts, music, podcasts, and notes will be deleted. There is a more straightforward, superior method that we shall discuss later down. For the time being, we’re going to stick to what Apple has to offer.

Step 1. To begin, go to Settings > General > Reset and choose “Erase All Content and Settings.”
