This guide will show you how to reset settings on iPhone 13 Pro Max such as location, privacy, Home Screen layout, cellular plan, keyboard, network, and all other settings. But first, let us explain why you might wish to reset your device. Then you’ll learn how to reset your iOS 15 or iPadOS 15 devices.
Why reset your iPhone 13/13 Pro Max settings?
There are seven reset options on iPhone 13 Pro Max (listed below), including Erase All Content and Settings. These reset settings buttons aren’t designed to be used every day, but only when something isn’t working correctly. We frequently suggest resetting the iPhone settings in our troubleshooting tutorials if anything isn’t working correctly.
When you reset a setting, your iPhone loses its customizations and reverts to the default settings, which are the same as when you first got your new iPhone out of the box.
To summarize, you should only reset your iPhone settings if something isn’t working correctly and all other solutions have failed.
Before resetting your iPhone
- Aside from Erase All Content and Settings, no other reset option deletes your music, photos, movies, files, documents, applications, app data, and additional personal information.
- Even so, you should back up your iPhone or iPad. This ensures that if your device fails to restart or bricks after the reset, you have a backup to restore and get all of your data back. Even if you don’t have enough iCloud storage, you may perform a full, temporary back up with this new iOS 15 feature.
- Make sure you know the passcode and Apple ID password for your iPhone. Depending on which reset you select, you’ll have to input them if requested.
How to reset settings on iPhone 13 Pro Max?
All of the reset options are grouped into one option. Here’s how to reset your iPhone on iOS 15.
- Open the Settings app on your iPhone 13 Pro max
- Select General
- Tap Transfer or Reset iPhone at the bottom of the screen.
- You have two choices here: Ease All Content and Settings and Reset.
- Then, confirm that you want to proceed by tapping one of the reset choices and entering your iPhone passcode.
Reset location and privacy settings
This restores the default location and privacy settings. After you’ve completed this step, go to the Settings app > Privacy and make the modifications you want. Location Services is one of the most significant. You won’t utilize apps like maps, weather, food delivery, and others until you activate them.
After resetting your location and privacy settings, you may see popups asking for access to your photos, microphone, and camera when you start applications.
Reset Home Screen Layout
Resetting your Home Screen app layout, reorganizing how applications and widgets are arranged on your iPhone Home Screen is one way to address this inconvenience.
The applications on your initial iPhone Home Screen page, as well as the Dock, will revert to their previous configuration after this. To put it another way, they’ll look the same as they did the day you acquired your new iPhone. The remaining Apple programs and a folder will be located at the top of the second Home Screen screen. All of your downloaded applications will be grouped alphabetically below that.
Reset Keyboard Dictionary
If you reset the keyboard dictionary, all custom words you’ve typed and added to the iPhone dictionary will be erased. “You add words to the keyboard dictionary by rejecting terms suggested by iPhone as you type,” Apple explains.
Please note that, as previously stated, it only removes the custom words that your keyboard has learned due to your typing. It does not affect the keyboard settings, Text Replacement phrases, or anything else.
Remove All Cellular Plans
If you have an iPhone with eSIM, you will have the option to remove all cellular plans. You won’t be able to see this unless you do.
- On the iPhone 13 series, you may utilize up to two eSIM cards. On iPhone XR, XS, and later, you may utilize one eSIM.
- Please remember that eSIM will not work on any iPhone purchased in Macau, China, or Hong Kong. eSIM is only supported on iPhone 13 mini, 12 mini, SE (2nd generation), and iPhone XS purchased in Hong Kong or Macao.
Remove All Cellular Plans: only use this option to wipe your eSIM completely. The following are examples of situations where you might want to delete your eSIM:
- You wish to utilize an eSIM card from a different carrier on this iPhone.
- You don’t want to use eSIM anymore.
- Alternatively, you may be selling or giving away your iPhone.
- Your cellular plan will not be interrupted or disconnected if you delete your eSIM from your iPhone. You must contact your carrier for this.
- Follow your carrier’s instructions to set up eSIM on the new iPhone if you wish to move an eSIM from your existing iPhone to another. The plan on your previous iPhone will immediately deactivate once it is enabled on the new iPhone.
- Even if you wipe your iPhone clean, you’ll be given a choice to preserve or remove your cellular plans.
Reset Network Settings
This impacts iPhone network settings such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, cellular settings, VPN, and other similar options. It will not remove personal information, as previously stated.
When updates fail, cellular data and Wi-Fi stopped working, gadgets won’t connect to the iPhone’s Bluetooth, and you’re having trouble accessing the internet, changing network settings might assist.
Open the iPhone Settings app after the network settings have been reset to join a Wi-Fi network and pair your Bluetooth devices.
Reset All Settings
When you reset all settings on your iPhone, any setting you’ve altered or added will revert to factory defaults.
It’s preferable if you only do this in exceptional circumstances. After you’ve reset all of your settings, you’ll need to manually launch each app, which will then display a popup with options to send alerts and more. So, if you have any essential apps, make sure you launch them after you’ve reset all of your settings and pay attention to any pop-up alerts that appear.
The iPhone’s settings were successfully reset
This is how you may reset settings on iPhone 13 Pro Max. As previously said, only perform these steps after initial fixes like rebooting, upgrading iOS, force-closing the app, and so on have failed.
