I want to remove all data on my iPhone as I just got a new one and plan to sell the old one. The problem is that every time i tap 'erase all content and settings', it was stuck on a gray screen. After reboot, nothing was deleted.

 

What is going on here?

Not sure why this happens, but you can try restoring your iPhone through iTunes without backup. This will erase all content and settings from your iPhone.

The data in backup file will be still on the phone, right?

No, when you restore your iPhone through iTunes, you have an option to make a backup file on your PC. It helps you get the content back once the restoration process is complete. However, when you restore to erase everything or fix some bugs, you just need to press the "Restore iPhone" button, which is just under the iOS version on the iTunes screen. Once the process is complete, you'll be presented with two options. You can either restore from backup or set up as a new iPhone. Select the latter. Then when you look at your iPhone, you'll notice the initial set up screen. It will ask you to enter your Apple ID and iCloud account. Skip these steps. This will restore the backup files to your iPhone on the air. So, you skip all these steps and your iPhone is new again.

I personally sued safewiper for iOS to wipe my iphone 6 plus before I selling on ebay, it works but not free, the trail version allowed me to wipe 50 files, so I purchased and use the full version to wipe my iPhone. 

 

So, if you need the code of safewier for iOS, please give me your email, I can send to you for free.

you can download it here.

How about restoring it with the help of iTunes? Connect your iPhone 6 and click "Restore iPhone" on iTunes.

If not, you can use an iPhone system recovery for Windows to fix system and factory reset iPhone under its advanced mode.

It is simple to operate and supports all models of iPhone as well as the latest iOS 12.

If you have iTunes or iCloud, we can restore from iTunes, and erase iPhone device on iCloud to factory reset iPhone, and will erase all data in iPhone permanently. Or we can use DFU or Recovery Mode to factory reset iPhone without password.

There are many ways to factory reset iPhone 6 whether you know the passcode or not, such as using iCloud, iTunes, iPhone recovery mode, a third-party professional iOS system restore tool, etc. I once got the same problem and this post helped me after seached on the Internet. Maybe you can also have a try.

To fix errors on iPhone, my option is to use a tool named TunesKit iOS System Recovery. It is for all iOS users to fix iPhone stuck on White Apple logo, black/blue/white screen, headphone mode, ios update failure, etc. in easy steps. You can have a try depend on own needs.
