It is said that everyone has some sort of skeleton in their closet (I don’t). Be that as it may, even without skeletons in our closets, we all don’t want everyone having access to our closets. In essence, we all love the feeling of security, safety and to a large extent privacy-assured. That is why we want to erase iPhone data at times.
Sometimes, we erase data because we have to sell or gift out the iPhone. Or sometimes, we have to return company phone because we are leaving, and sometimes because we simply want to remove everything that points to a particular history. Either ways, erasing iPhone data is something we all have to do.
