You’re getting ready to sell or give away your iPhone, iPad, or Android device. But first you want to wipe all traces of yourself and your data.
Fortunately, Apple and Android phones and tablets offer built-in features through which you can erase all your personal information, applications, and other content. The process brings the phone back to factory conditions so a new owner can’t retrieve any leftover information.
The steps for wiping your phone differ between an iPhone or Android phone but are still quite doable with either type of device.
