Factory Reset Your iPad

Please follow these steps before you turn in your iPad.

Restoring the iPad Mini to its default settings is also essential if you are thinking of selling or giving away your iPad to someone else as you can fully erase your personal info from the device before it leaves your hands.

Here are 2 simple ways to restore factory settings and erase all the content on your iPad Mini, with the help of iTunes, and without.

1. Restore to Factory Settings Without iTunes

It is just as simple to restore your iPad Mini without iTunes. Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap on Erase All Content and Settings.

You’ll then be asked if you want to continue; after the confirmation, your iPad will reset and the Apple logo together with a loading bar will appear on screen.

Upon the start up, all content, apps, music, photos, and personal account information will be erased from the iPad. And you’ll have to go through the process of setting up the device from scratch (choosing language, Apple ID, etc.).


2. Restore Factory Settings With iTunes

Start by connecting your iPad Mini to your desktop computer with the provided cable. Start iTunes. Locate your iPad under ‘Devices’ on the left panel and click on Restore.

If this is your first time restoring, you’ll have to wait for the firmware file to be downloaded. Once it is downloaded, it’ll ask if you really want to restore. Confirm to proceed.

Once your iPad starts up again, you’ll have a clean iPad with the latest firmware installed.
