How do I clear all data from my iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad?

At Indiana University, if you have configured your device to connect to Exchange, you can use OWA to wipe your data remotely if your device is lost or stolen; see In Outlook Web App, how can I manage my Exchange ActiveSync device?

Warning:
The following will delete all data on your device.

To clear all data from your iOS device:

  1. Tap Settings > General > Reset.
  2. Tap Erase All Content and Settings.
Note:
On iOS 4 or later devices, this process takes about one minute. On earlier devices, the process can take several hours, depending on the storage capacity of your device; you should connect the device to a power source before beginning the process.
