Doing a clean installation is sometimes recommended, since it also prevents unnecessary files from being transferred to your iPhone and iPad. The steps on how you should perform a clean installation process of iOS 10 have been given below.

  1. Update your iTunes software on your Windows or Mac platform
  2. Download the IPSW file of iOS 10 that has been made specifically for your device (this part is extremely important, so make sure that you follow it to the letter and for your flexibility, the desired IPSW links can be found below)
  3. Turn off ‘Find My iPhone’. Go to Settings > iCloud > Find My iPhone and toggle it to off
  4. Connect your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to your computer using a cable
  5. Launch iTunes
  6. If you are a Mac user, you will need to hold the Alt key, while Windows will need to hold down the Shift key. Afterwards, click on the ‘Restore iPhone’. iTunes will now prompt you to select the IPSW firmware file. After you’ve selected this option, your entire device’s storage will be wiped clean.
