How to Completely Delete Messages on iPhone before Selling

Posted by on .

At some point in life, one might need to change his device by acquiring a new one. The old device in most cases will have personal information such as contacts, messages, photos among other information that is capable of being stored in a iPhone device. No one would wish to have this information seen by the next owner of the device or any other person who may come into contact with the device. It is therefore wise to have the text messages erased from the device completely so that it does not land in the hands of an unintended person.


Failure to have the data permanently deleted can be damaging especially with the rise in use of the internet which can see the personal information circulated through the online platforms such as the social media sites. It can also result to the owner of the information becoming a victim of cybercrime which has been on the rise in the recent past. And don't trust that simple deletion will completely delete text messages on iPhone. The manual deleting of data from a device does not protect the data from being recovered through the use of right tools.

The software is compatible with various devices such as iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
