Are you planning on selling or giving away your Apple Tv? If yes, then you should not forget that it is also an iOS device. Therefore, you should take the time to delete your music, files, and personal data before passing it on to the new owner. Otherwise, the new user can purchase music using your account or even view your personal data.
Apple always introduces new product models every year. That said, if you are an Apple product enthusiast and you like staying abreast with the latest products, you may consider selling your old device to make a little money towards getting the newer generation model.
Today, most of the second-hand devices available on online pawnshops like eastvillagebuyers.com contain the old user's content.
Some devices may even let you access their music, image collection, and films. Therefore, you need to be careful not to fall on the same path. That is why in this article, we will discuss how to prepare your Apple Tv before resale.
How to Reset the Apple TV
Before you resell your Apple Tv, you should wipe out all the data on the device. You can either reset the Apple Tv box via remote or computer. We will explore both of these options.
Using a Remote
On the Apple Tv interface, you can reset the device by going to Settings, System, Reset.
A menu will pop up with two options; Reset and the other Reset and Update.
With the Reset option, you will restore the Apple Tv to factory settings and erase all information.
With Reset and Update, you will restore the Apple Tv to factory settings, erase all information and update the Apple Tv to the latest tvOS version.
Using a Computer
If booting up your Tv isn't successful with the remote option, you can use a Mac/PC running iTunes to reset the Apple Tv. However, you will need a USB-C to USB-A cable.
The first step is to disconnect your Apple Tv from the power source
Connect the Apple Tv to your Mac/Pc running iTunes with the USB-C to USB-A.
Plug back the Apple Tv to power, and it will restart
When you launch iTunes on your computer, it should recognize the Apple Tv
Two options will pop up; Restore Apple Tv or Eject Apple TV. It would be best if you choose the Restore Apple Tv option then pick the option that says Restore and Update.
Now, iTunes will download then install the latest Apple tvOS version. At the same time, it will restore the device to factory settings and delete all your data from the System.
Now you can Eject the Apple Tv and reconnect it to your Tv as new or resell it to another person.
As you prepare your Apple Tv for resale, resetting it is one of the critical steps. It helps to return the Apple Tv to the original settings giving it a clean wipe. That ensures, as you sell your device, you clear off all your personal data and information. However, you need to know that this is an irreversible process that you cannot interrupt or stop once you begin.
