How to Erase All Content and Settings on iPhone 7/6S/6/5S/5

As an iPhone user, it's highly possible to change his old iPhone by acquiring a new one at a yearly basis. The old device in most cases will have important personal information such as contacts, messages, photos, and music as well as other information that is capable of being stored in a device. No one would wish to have the information accessed by the next owner or any other person who may come into contact with the device. It is therefore wise to have the data erased from the device completely so that it does not land in the hands of an unintended person. Failure to have the data permanently deleted can be resulted to the owner of the information becoming a victim of cybercrime.


With the challenges listed above posing a threat to iPhone users who want to dispose, sell or donate their devices, iPhone Data Eraser is the best software to have private data erased permanently from the iPhone. The software is compatible with various iPhone models such as iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. It ensures that the information once deleted can't be traced even with the most advanced data recovery software. Manually deleting data from iPhone does not protect the data from being recovered through the use of right tools. iPhone Data Eraser can also be used when the owner of a device wants to free some space. This increases the performance of a device.
