Resetting All Your iPhone’s Settings

Sometimes if your iPhone isn’t working properly, you can reset all the phone’s settings and fix the problem.

Watch the video and check out the article below.



I am using an iPhone 5s with iOS 7.1.2 installed. This will work with any iPhone or iPad running iOS 7.
Resetting all your settings only deletes your iPhone’s settings. No media or data is deleted. Your apps, your photos, mail, messages, all remain on your phone.

I don’t have a complete list of all the settings that will be deleted, but here are some examples.

  1. Your network settings (Wi-Fi networks and passwords)
  2. Your Home and Lock Screen wallpapers
  3. Your passcode
  4. Your Touch ID fingerprints
  5. You’ll have to reenter Apple passwords


To reset all your iPhone’s settings, follow these steps

  1. Tap Settings
  2. Tap General
  3. Tap Reset
  4. Tap Reset All Settings
  5. Enter Your Passcode (if you have one)
  6. Tap Reset All Settings to confirm (This will reset all settings. No data or media will be deleted)
  7. Tap Reset All Settings again to confirm (Are you sure you want to continue? This will reset all settings. No data or media will be deleted.)

Once completed, your phone will restart. Check to see if that solved whatever problem you have with your iPhone.
