Transcript:How to Restore Your iPhoneHi, I'm Devita Jacobs and today I'm going to show you how to restore your iPhone.
To Restore Your iPhone, Check for Software UpdatesMake sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed and running before attempting to update. iTunes generally prompts you upon opening to download the latest update. However, if it doesn’t simply visit the iTunes section of the Apple website for the latest download. Connect your iphone to your computer using the USB cable that came with your iphone. Select your iPhone when it appears in iTunes under Devices. The sync menu will appear.

Select the Restore option in the “Version” menu. iTunes will provide a warning informing you that restoring your phone means losing all the data present on the device. This is the main screen for your iphone data. You have the option to cancel or continue with the restoration to factory settings. When prompted to back up your settings before restoring, select the Back Up option
