How to factory reset Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus (iOS 9 tutorial)

The Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are two of the best selling smartphones to date, but for smartphone newcomers or Android switchers, the menu can be a confusing place to be in. 

One question that you might bump into is how to do a factory reset on the iPhone 6s running the latest iOS 9 platform. Search for it in the universal search and nothing comes up!

In fact, Apple prefers to avoid calling this a factory reset, and instead has several options that allow you much more control over what you reset in your phone. The equivalent to a factory reset is something called 'Erase All Content and Settings' in iOS 9, but you can choose to erase only network settings, or just the layout of icons on the home panel. We show you how to do all of this in a few simple steps right below, take a look.
