How Do I Sanitize iPad 2 for Sale, Trade, Gift?
I will soon be giving my new iPad 2 Refurb to my daughter. I want to completely sanitize it prior to the event. I found the following "how to" at apple support:
You can remove all settings and information from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using "Erase All Content and Settings" in Settings > General > Reset.
If possible, your device should have a full charge before beginning this process. If it doesn't have a full charge, connect the device to power and leave it connected until the process is complete.
iPad, iPhone, iPod touch
When you opt to "Erase All Content and Settings," the process can take from a few minutes to several hours. The time this process takes will vary by iOS device:
Devices that support hardware encryption: Erases user settings and information by removing the encryption key that protects the data. This process takes just a few minutes.
Devices that overwrite memory: Overwrites user settings and information, writing a series of ones to the data partition. This process can take several hours, depending on the storage capacity of your iPhone or iPod touch. During this time, the device displays the Apple logo and a progress bar.
Just wanted to seek your opinion as to whether this is current and complete info. Additionally, I would like to know this will be totally independent of my iPhone 4S since they are both synced with iTunes.
