    I read "Reset all settings" often helps with bugs.

    Obviously, when you do that, all the network settings (including wifi passwords) get deleted.

    Now, because all the wifi passwords are synced with iCloud Keychain, and I can see them on my Mac in the Keychain Access app. If on the iPhone I: turn off keychain - reset all settings - turn on keychain. Could that reset all settings and yet get my passwords back afterwards?

    I read someone simply did reset all settings on the iPhone and the passwords got deleted on the Mac too! :eek:
    (Is there an easy way to back up all the password found in keychain access?)

    Help? Thanks! :)
