Step 4: Select "Backup & reset"
In the "Additional Settings", tap on "Backup & reset" to access options for backing up and resetting your device.
Step 5: Tap "Factory Reset"
In the “Backup and reset” menu, tap on “Factory reset” to start the reset procedure. You will see a screen that will inform you of all the data and apps that will be deleted during the reset.
