On the iPhone 8 Plus, a master reset is also known as a factory reset. The method resets your iPhone to factory settings and may destroy your personal data, including downloads, ringtones, photos, applications, contacts, and Visual Voicemail, from the internal storage. The data on the SIM card will remain unaffected. You can master reset your iPhone 8 Plus in a variety of ways. The hardware keys can be used to perform a master reset. If your iPhone menus are stuck or unresponsive, this is your best alternative. When attempting to resolve software-related iPhone issues, you may also do a master reset. However, considering the potential repercussions, making a backup of your iPhone is strongly advised before proceeding.

How to perform a master or factory reset on your new iPhone 8 Plus:

  1. Go to the Settings tab.
  2. Select General.
  3. Restart by pressing the Reset button.
  4. Erase All Content and Settings is the option to choose.
  5. Continue by entering the right passcode for your device if required.
  6. To confirm the action, tap the selection.

Wait for your iPhone to do the master reset before rebooting to factory default settings. You may then complete the basic setup procedure and use your iPhone as if it were brand new.
