Security Wipe An Ipad
Performing a security wipe on an iPad might be necessary if you are interested in reselling the iPad you own in order to be able to afford the new version of the tablet or another tablet that has captured your attention. If that’s the case you should know that securely wiping an iPad is not difficult at all as long as you are aware of the right tools that you can use.
There are actually two methods that you can use in order to securely wipe an iPad, but one of them is better than the other because it makes sure that you will find it easy to set up a new iPad. This better method involves focusing on your iPad and accessing the Settings app which will lead you to General from where you will be able to choose Reset. What you will have to do after choosing Reset is tap on Erase All Content and Settings. In the next step you will have to enter your passcode as long as one is available. If it’s not you should definitely consider adding it by going to Settings, choosing General and tapping on Passcode lock. What you will have to do next is click Erase and wait until the process that you have launched is completed. Once a success message is displayed you will have to restart the iPad in order to make sure that the changes have entered in effect.
The less desirable method of securely wiping an iPad involves connecting the device to a PC or Mac and launching iTunes. In the next step you will have to choose your iPad from the interface of iTunes and focus on the Summary tab where you will find the Restore option. By clicking this button you will initiate the Restore process that once completed will give you the chance to set up the iPad as new device. When you are done with the setup as new device you are supposed to disconnect the iPad from the computer chosen and restart it in order to validate the changes made. This second method of secure wiping is less desirable because it automatically overwrites the iTunes backup of your iPad. So, if you are interested in getting a newer version of iPad, you won’t be able to restore it to a configuration that you already know you like because no backup will still be available. So, if you want to reduce the time necessary for setting up a new iPad, you should go with the first method specified which is also slightly easier to complete.
Now you know all about securely wiping an iPad and making it suitable for an upcoming resale.
