Here’s how to erase private data on your iPhone or iPad the right and easy way using our guide below.
The amount of private and identifiable information that you have on your phone is pretty amazing. The more we use our phones for our personal lives and business lives alike, the more data they collect.
And that kind of data could be bad when left in the hands of a third party. With that in mind you probably want to make sure that you fully erase these things when you sell or recycle them.
Sure, you can use Apple’s built-in options for erasing your device but that might not do the job depending on how secure you like to be.
What you need to try is an app like the Stellar ToolKit for iPhone. The app can permanently erase iPhone data to the point of 0% recovery chances. All third-party apps and data are obviously removed here, too.
Stellar says its app “guarantees data privacy” and that’s absolutely the kind of thing that you want to hear when you’re doing this kind of thing.
That’s data removal, but what if you need to restore data as well. This toolkit can do that as well, with support for all the latest iPhones and iOS versions with data recovered from your device, iCloud, and iTunes.
