    Maybe you know the way of using the default erase setting built in iOS, but it doesn't really erase your personal data. In fact, Apple only encrypts the whole data on your iPhone instead of erasing it. With a special and powerful recovery tool, the data can be fully recovered from your iPhone. So, in order to protect your personal information and delete data on your iPhone permanently, need a third-party data eraser, here recommend the SafeEraser or SafeEraser for Mac. With it all data on your iPhone can be really deleted forever. No matter which data recovery software you use, you can find nothing on it.

    SafeEraser works great for iPhone X / 8 Plus / 8 / 7 Plus / 7 / 6S Plus / 6S / SE. You can download it below:

    Step 2. Choose a Level to erase data
    There are three levels of data erasing for your choice. You can directly use the default one (medium), which will overwrite your iPhone with junk files to ensure that the files are not recoverable, and no one knows that you've deleted all data on your iPhone. What they can recover from your iPhone are all junk files.
