Answered by Cody Janus

To factory reset your iPhone 6s using the buttons, follow these steps:

1. Backup your data: Before performing a factory reset, it’s important to backup your iPhone to avoid losing any important data. You can backup your iPhone using iCloud or iTunes.

2. Power off your iPhone: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button located on the right side (or top, depending on the model) of your iPhone until the power off slider appears on the screen. Slide it to power off your device.

3. Enter recovery mode: Press and hold the Home button located on the front of your iPhone, and while holding the Home button, connect your iPhone to your computer using a USB cable. Keep holding the Home button until you see the recovery mode screen with the iTunes logo and a Lightning cable.

4. Open iTunes: Launch iTunes on your computer. If you don’t have iTunes installed, you can download it from the Apple website.

5. Restore your iPhone: A message will pop up in iTunes, stating that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode and needs to be restored. Click on the “Restore” option to begin the restoration process.

6. Confirm the factory reset: iTunes will display a warning message stating that all your data will be erased and your iPhone will be restored to its original factory settings. Click on “Restore and Update” to proceed.

7. Wait for the process to complete: iTunes will download the necessary software and restore your iPhone to factory settings. This may take some time, so be patient and ensure that your computer remains connected to the internet and your iPhone remains connected to the computer.

8. Set up your iPhone: Once the factory reset process is complete, your iPhone will restart and display the “Hello” screen. Follow the on-screen instructions to set up your iPhone as a new device or restore from a backup.

It’s essential to note that performing a factory reset will erase all data and settings on your iPhone, so make sure to backup any important data before proceeding. Additionally, ensure that your iPhone is sufficiently charged or connected to a power source during the factory reset process to prevent any interruptions.
