Many users may come up with some trouble on their iPhone or iPad and they perform the factory reset to work smoothly. If you are an Apple user, you will be driven nuts by a variety of questions about iPhone factory settings. “How to reset iPhone 4s/5/5s/6/6s/7 to factory settings?”, “How to recover data from my restored iPhone?” and so forth.
Whether you get your iPhone/iPad restored to factory reset by accident, or reset to factory settings for speeding up your slow iPhone iPad or other reasons, you must know that once you restore iOS device to factory reset, your data (contacts, text messages, phtos, apps, settings, and more) will be deleted from your iPhone or iPad.
After your iPhone/iPad is reset to factory settings, you can restore from an iCloud or iTunes backup to get back your photos, music, etc if you’ve ever had a backup.
