Whether you sell iPhone or take it to make it repair, you must “reset” to remove your different mail accounts or including your Apple ID, Facebook, eBay, E-mails and additional accounts and remove all your content including apps, Pictures and Music.

How to reset iPhone
Once done, you can start the reset process. It should also remember to remove your SIM card before you go on the iPhone or iPad, as this may have information stored on, and you want to continue using a new phone or tablet.
Here we used an iPhone with iOS 9 but it is exactly the same on an iPad and a very similar process in older versions.
Method 1. Tap Settings, and then tap General. Scroll through the list until the setting. (In iOS 9, you can also pull down the settings and search for Reset.)
Method 2. Press Clear content and settings. Depending on whether you set a password and / or Passcode restrictions (they are different), you may have to enter this code or password to clear and reset. There is no way to reset the device unless you enter the code (s).
Method 3. Now you want to enter your Apple ID Code. It is the account can be deleted from your device and locating my iPhone can be disabled. If you restore only an iPhone via iTunes, you will be prompted to enter the Apple ID and password when it restarts. Reset using the method that we describe here will ask the iPhone to an Apple ID when avoiding rebooting.
Method 4. The reset process may take a minute or two and then the Home screen will indicate whether you are scanning to continue taking. It is then ready to be sold or transferred to an Apple Store for repair.
