How to prepare a used iPhone to be able to sell it
One of the things that we must take into account before selling the iPhone is that the device will become someone else’s and therefore we must, obviously, leave it without any data that it contains, that is, leave it as when we use it for the first time.

This operation can be done in several ways, although the safest and most complete is to make the backup through iTunes.
For this simply it will be necessary:
Connect the device, in this case the iPhone, to the computer, through the Lightning cable or the old 30-pin connector.
Next, we open iTunes and select our iPhone.
In the section Backup copies select the option this computer.
