Erase iPhone Verification Failed? Try Some Common Tips

If you’ve tried verifying your iPhone and you keep getting failed messages, you may need to do the following to get it fixed as soon as possible

1. Ensure Stable Network:

In general, the reason for “Verification failed there was an error connecting to Apple ID server” is the poor network connection. Try both WiFi network and cellular data. To refresh the network connection, you can also put your iPhone into Airplane mode and then turn it off. Then just try the data erasure again.

2. Reset Network Settings:

If you’ve connected your iPhone to too much WiFi before, it could cause the failure to link with another WiFi. To do this troubleshooting, go to “Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings”. When it finishes, reconnect your iPhone to WiFi.

3. Sign Out of iCloud or Turn Off Find My iPhone

Except the previous ways, you can also try to sign out of iCloud or just turn off Find My iPhone first before you erase your iPhone.

  • Sign Out of iCloud Steps: Go to Settings > [your name] on your iPhone and scroll down to find “Sign Out”. Enter your iCloud password and tap “Turn Off”. Turn on the data that you want to keep a copy of on your device and tap “Sign Out” to confirm.
  • Sign Out of iCloud
  • Turn Off Find My iPhone Steps: Go to Settings > [your name] > iCloud > Find My iPhone and enter your iCloud password. Click “Turn Off” to confirm.
