Are you facing issues with your iPhone 12 and want to reset it? Resetting your iPhone can help resolve various software-related problems and restore it to its default settings.

In this tutorial, we will guide you on how to reset your iPhone 12. Let’s get started!

Before You Begin

Before you proceed with the reset process, make sure to back up all your important data. Resetting your iPhone will erase all the data and settings, so it’s essential to have a backup to restore your data later.

Resetting iPhone 12

To reset your iPhone 12, follow these simple steps:

Step 1: Access Settings

Unlock your iPhone and go to the home screen. Tap on the “Settings” app icon represented by a gear-shaped icon.

Step 2: Navigate to General

In the Settings menu, scroll down and tap on “General.” It is usually located towards the top of the third group of options.

Step 3: Find Reset Options

In the General menu, scroll down and look for “Reset”. Tap on it to access various reset options.

Step 4: Choose Reset All Settings

In the Reset menu, you will find various options like “Reset All Settings,” “Erase All Content and Settings,” etc. For a soft reset without losing your data, choose “Reset All Settings.” This option will not delete any of your personal files but will revert all settings back to their defaults.

Step 5: Confirm Your Decision

A pop-up window will appear asking for confirmation. If you are sure about resetting your iPhone, tap on “Reset All Settings” again to proceed.

Step 6: Enter Your Passcode

To authorize the reset process, you need to enter your iPhone’s passcode. Enter the passcode and tap on “Reset All Settings” to continue.

Step 7: Wait for Reset

Your iPhone will now begin the reset process. It may take a few minutes, and your iPhone may restart multiple times. Wait patiently until the process is completed.


Congratulations! You have successfully reset your iPhone 12.

Remember that resetting your iPhone should only be done when necessary, as it erases all settings and preferences. Make sure to set up your device again and restore any backed-up data if needed.

By following these steps, you can easily reset your iPhone 12 and resolve any software-related issues you might be facing. We hope this tutorial has been helpful to you!
