Before you reset your iPhone 14/iPhone 14 Plus/iPhone 14 Pro Max!

To save your content and settings, back up your iPhone shortly before erasing or when you have time during the erasing process.

You can use the backup to restore your data to a new iPhone or iPad later.

Prepare your iPhone passcode. If you can’t remember, check the Apple Support article on Apple’s site.

If you forgot the passcode on your iPhone or if your iPhone is disabled.

Prepare your Apple ID password. If you can’t remember, visit the website to restore your Apple ID.

If you received your iPhone from someone else and it is still associated with their Apple ID, give it back to them and ask them to follow the instructions in the Apple Support article What to do first, or iPod touch. Otherwise, you cannot delete it.
