Hi,

How do I reset my ipod touch 4th gen when selling it? I want to take off all apps, music, and apple id listed in it.  Last time I did this I erased the software too.  Thanks

iPod touch (4th generation), iOS 6.0.1

    Hello,

     

    You can try two things.

    1.- (the most easy) go to Settings>Reset and follow the guide there shows to reset your iPod touch 4 completely.

    2.- (easy too) Plug your device in to iTunes, in the superior bar you can search your device, will appear a screen showing your info, scroll down and you will find a button which says "Restore", follow the guide (this removes EVERY single file in your device,

     

    Cheers.

    Hello again.

     

    Just discconect from the Store.

    The way to do this is so easy,

    Go to settings>iTunes and AppStores>select your apple id>tap discconect.

     

    That should bring your id out without using your computer.

    The media on the iPod does not transfer with the sale of the iPod, You should go to Settings>General>Reset>Erase all content and settings.

    The Apple ID is used in more places than Settings>iTunes and App Stores
