I want to sell my iPhone 5S and want to remove all the content and settings from the device, how can i do that?

Edit: I searched on Google and found a post on CNET, saying a factory reset is not secure enough and the data is still accessible by tools. I followed the tutorial on that post to erase content and settings first with an data cleaning app, then do a factory reset. This should be enough and there is no way to recover any data from the iPhone.

To erase iPhone data permanently before selling it, pro iPhone Data Eraser program can help you do that. By operating it, you can choose the security level to delete data from iPhone according to your own needs. After erasing, the whole traces of your iPhone will be wiped off permanently without recovering.
