    Setup as new


    Settings>General>Reset>Erase all content and settings

    Setting up as new will not de-register the previous owner from their Support Profile.


    The previous owner can however remove the registration from the Support Profile.

    I am afraid only the seller can de-register it from his/her Support Profile because you do not have his/her Apple ID and Password.
