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.

hard reset will delete your data, apps and settings
