The Apple iPhone is designed to be safe, secure, and super fast. The level of performance that you can extract out of an iPhone is unparalleled to any competition, and the best part is that the device maintains the highest level of security while breezing through tasks.

However, there are times where a software update gets buggy and this causes a few features to misbehave. In such cases, Apple releases a fix in a very short time, but if you are not in a position to wait, another solution that can help fix this bug is the reset feature.

Now, resetting an iPhone from within the device is actually possible, but you need the Apple ID credentials. Now, if you are not able to recollect the passcode or if your iPhone is just not in a state to respond, there is another way.
