Thanks for your sharing, this is the useful way for us to restore iPhone to factory settings. However, if you want to recover data from your previous iTunes backup file, you can choose FonePaw iPhone Data Recovery to scan your iTunes backups and then you can save those data to your computer.

This doesn't work. It tries to update when you click restore. When it's almost done updating a message pops up saying it can't restore without the password......if I remembered the password I wouldn't be restoring it to factory setting. I've searched for hours on the internet and there IS NO FIX or bypass for this. apple can suck it

In step 12: you can also restore from an iCloud backup if you restore for the iPhone and not iTunes.

I meant restore from the iPhone and not for the iPhone. :)

But restore from the second option not first then hold shift.

If you just hold Shift and choose update instead restore, it would be much quicker process which wouldn't delete all the data and you don't have to restore your phone from the backup after your phone is restored to previous firmware

That wouldn't be restoring your iPhone to factory settings.
