Restore your device from an iCloud backup

  1. Turn on your device. You should see a Hello screen. If you already set up your device, you need to erase all of its content before you can use these steps to restore from your backup.
  2. Follow the onscreen setup steps until you reach the Apps & Data screen, then tap Restore from iCloud Backup.
  3. Sign in to iCloud with your Apple ID.
  4. Choose a backup. Look at the date and size of each and pick the most relevant. After you choose, the transfer starts. If a message says that a newer version of iOS is required, follow the onscreen steps to update.
  5. When asked, sign in to your Apple ID account to restore your apps and purchases (If you’ve purchased iTunes or App Store content using multiple Apple IDs, you’ll be asked to sign in to each). If you can’t remember your
    password, you can tap Skip this Step and sign in later.
  6. Stay connected and wait for a progress bar to appear and complete. Depending on the size of the backup and the network speed, the progress bar might need a few minutes to an hour to complete. If you disconnect from Wi-Fi too soon, the progress will pause until you reconnect.
  7. Now you can finish setup and enjoy your device. Content like your apps, photos, music, and other information will continue to restore in the background for the next several hours or days, depending on the amount of
    information there is. Try to connect often to Wi-Fi and power to let the process complete.

Restore your device from an iTunes backup

  1. Open iTunes on the Mac or PC that you used to back up your device.
  2. Connect your device to your computer with a USB cable. If a message asks for your device passcode or to Trust This Computer, follow the onscreen steps.
  3. Select your iPhone, or iPad when it appears in iTunes.
  4. Select Restore Backup in iTunes.
  5. Look at the date and size of each backup and pick the most relevant.
  6. Click Restore and wait for the restore time to finish. If asked, enter the password for your encrypted backup
  7. Keep your device connected after it restarts and wait for it to sync with your computer. You can disconnect after the sync finishes.

How to remove iCloud

Use these steps to remove your personal information from a device.
Unfortunately, we cannot accept any device that is locked to an iCloud account.
You will need to remove your account before sending your device to us.

iOS Devices

Before you sell or give away your device, you should remove your personal information. You shouldn’t manually delete your contacts, calendars, reminders, documents, photo streams, or any other iCloud data while you’re signed in to iCloud with your Apple ID. This would delete your content from the iCloud servers and any of your devices signed in to iCloud.

Follow these steps:

  1. If you paired an Apple Watch with your iPhone, unpair your Apple Watch.
  2. Back up your iOS device.
  3. Tap Settings > iCloud (Fig. A). Scroll down and tap Sign Out. In iOS 7 or earlier, tap Delete Account
  4. Tap Sign Out again (Fig. B), then tap Delete from My iPhone and enter your password.
  5. Go back to Settings and tap General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings (Fig. C). If you turned on
    Find My iPhone, you might need to enter your Apple ID and password.
  6. If asked for your device passcode or Restrictions passcode, enter it. Then tap Erase [device].

*When you tap Erase All Content and Settings, it completely erases your device, including any credit or debit cards you
added for Apple Pay and any photos, contacts, music, or apps. It will also turn off iCloud, iMessage, FaceTime, Game
Center, and other services. Your content won’t be deleted from iCloud when you erase your device.

When you are ready to trade in your Mac, there are some steps you should take. You’ll want to back up your computer, disable some features and services, and erase the hard drive.

  1. Create a backup – Be sure you have an up-to-date backup of your important files and data. Learn how to back up your data in OS X.
  2. Sign out of iTunes – Open iTunes. From the menu bar at the top of your computer screen or at the top of the iTunes window, choose Account > Authorisations > Deauthorise This Computer (Fig. A). When prompted, enter your Apple ID and password (Fig. B). Then click Deauthorize.
  3. Sign out of iCloud – If you use Find My Mac or other iCloud features on your Mac, you should first archive or make copies of your iCloud data. After that, choose Apple Menu > System Preferences, click iCloud, and then deselect the Find My Mac checkbox (Fig. C).
  4. Finally, sign out of iCloud. In System Preferences, click iCloud, and then click the Sign Out button (Fig. D). When you sign out of iCloud, you’re asked whether you want to remove iCloud data from your Mac. Your iCloud data wil remain on any other devices that are using the same Apple ID.
  5. Sign out of iMessage – If you’re using OS X Mountain Lion or later, sign out of iMessage. In the Messages app, choose Preferences > Accounts. Select your iMessage account, then click Sign Out.
WARNING! Do not delete any data manually while signed into iCloud, as this will remove the content from your iCloud account and any linked devices .

How to back up your iPhone or iPad

If you are trading in your iPhone, or iPad you will need to back up all your information.

Choose a backup method

Before you get started, learn the difference between making backups with iCloud and iTunes and choose the method
that’s best for you. In case you ever need an alternative backup, you can make one in iCloud and another in iTunes.

iCloud

  1. Connect your device to a Wi-Fi network.
  2. Tap Settings, then scroll down and tap iCloud (Fig. A).
  3.  Scroll down, tap Backup (Fig. B), and make sure that iCloud Backup is turned on.
  4. Tap Back Up Now. Stay connected to your Wi-Fi network until the process completes.
  5. Make sure that the backup finished: Tap Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage, then select your
    device (Fig. C).
    The backup should appear in the details with the time and backup size.

Automatically back up with iCloud Backup

To let iCloud automatically back up your device each day, here’s what you need to do:

  • Make sure that iCloud Backup is turned on in Settings > iCloud > Backup.
  • Connect your device to a power source.
  • Connect your device to a Wi-Fi network.
  • Make sure that your device’s screen is locked.
  • Check that you have enough available space in iCloud for the backup.

iTunes

  1. Open iTunes and connect your device to your computer.
  2.  If a message asks for your device passcode or to Trust This Computer, follow the onscreen steps.
  3.  Select your iPhone, or iPad, when it appears in iTunes.
  4. If you want to save Health and Activity data from your iOS device or Apple Watch, you need to encrypt your backup: Select the box called Encrypt [device] backup and create a memorable password. Write down your password and store it somewhere safe, because there is no way to recover your iTunes backups without this
    password.
  5. If you don’t need to save your Health and Activity data, you can make a backup that isn’t encrypted.
    Just click Back Up Now.

After the process ends, you can see if your backup finished successfully in iTunes Preferences > Devices. You
should see the name of your device with the date and time that iTunes created the backup. If you encrypted your
backup, you should also see beside the name of your device.
