How to factory reset the OnePlus 10T

The factory reset option on Android phones comes in handy in various circumstances. You can use it to clear all your data from your device before selling it off or if you want to set up your device from scratch. Factory resetting deletes everything from your device and restores the software to factory settings, just like it was when you first pulled it out of the box. If you’re considering giving your OnePlus 10T the same treatment, you’ve come to the right place. In this post, we’ve outlined the steps you need to follow to factory reset the OnePlus 10T.

Before you factory reset your OnePlus 10T, ensure you’ve backed up all your data.

Your OnePlus 10T should now automatically power off and reboot to factory settings. During the process, the phone may reboot a few times, but there’s no need to worry. Resetting your device to factory settings usually takes a few minutes, and you should be greeted with the setup wizard once it’s complete. You can now set up your OnePlus 10T as a brand-new device or restore your backed-up data.

Once again, factory resetting removes all data from your device. If you only want to clear app data and restore your device to factory settings without losing the data stored in the internal storage, choose the Reset all settings option in the Reset phone menu instead of the Erase all data option. This will reset all the device settings, including network settings. In case you only want to reset the network settings, you can pick the Reset network settings option instead.
