iOS 7 iPhone 5C software problems got you down? This hard reset should help

Apple's all new and totally cool iPhone 5C is one hell of a device for its price. Sporting a multi-core CPU, a fantastic camera and iOS 7, the device absolutely stands out (and the bright, new color options help with that too).

While software is no doubt amazing, even the best phones, like the iPhone, with the best software have software bugs. So if your iPhone 5C is already having software issues, the next best thing you can do is a complete hard reset to fix it. A hard reset is a basic software process that completely erases all information on the smartphone, bringing it back to a factory state. It essentially wipes the slate clean.

Here we show you how to hard reset your all new iPhone 5C with step-by-step instructions. See below:

  1. Wake your iPhone 5C
  2. Navigate to and tap on Settings.
  3. Go to General.
  4. Tap Rest. It should be at the bottom.
  5. Select Erase all Content and Settings.
  6. Next, tap Erase iPhone.

Yep, it's that easy.

All in all, the iPhone 5C is a solid smartphone, but you're bound to hit a bump in the road along the way. And when that happens, remember to follow this guide.
