Step 2. Get Started to Erase All Contents on iPad

You can select the security level by clicking "Medium". There are three options-low, medium and high. Of course, higher level needs more time. So, usually we set it at "Medium". You need to type the word "delete" in the blank. This is a special design to prevent you from wiping the tablet by mistake. And then, tap "Erase Now".

Step 3. Wait for the End of Erasure

This step is divided into three parts. (If you don’t care what is going on with the iDevice, you can spend your time doing other things, because the process is automatic. Just click "Done" when it is over.) In the first part, the software will clear the content such as apps, photos, messages and so forth. In the second part, your iPad will restart so that it can be prepared for the coming part.
