    “I want to sell my iphone 4 to a friend of mine. I used to have some business info on the phone but i deleted it. I know deleting stuff doesnt "really" delete stuff and while i trust my friend i worry if somebody would steal the phone from my friend they could recover the deleted data.

It's totally safe and easy to use.

All the erased files are 100% unrecoverable. iPhone Data Eraser is compatible with iPhone 6/6 Plus/5S/5C/5/4S and more, as well as iPad and iPod touch.
