    My iPhone got thrown at a wall and the LCD and digitizer popped off. Instead of fixing it I want to just sell it and invest i na new phone. How do I go about resetting my phone? I can't do it via iTunes because I can't type the passcode in on the phone and I can't use DFU made because the home button is gone too.

    If you used icloud backups then hopefully your iphone auto backed up so at least you can download your data

    Do you manually backup to itunes ?

    Are you wanting to clean wipe your broken iphone ?
    Possibly use findmyiphone to wipe it

    Yes, I got all my pictures and media, but now I need to completely wipe the phone to factory setting to sell it, anyway to do that?

    Is that automatically on the phone? I only had it for about 2 weeks before it got broken, and I never installed it. Can I just do that from my apple account?
