Hey, I'm Skylar. If you've got to reset your iPod Touch but you don't have a computer, there's one thing you could do. You can reset all settings and it will erase the iPod and set it back to factory settings. This is close as you can get to fresh out of the box and without doing what's called a DFU restore. That's trickier and you have to have a computer to do that. So, press your home button and slide to unlock. Find settings and go to general. Down at the bottom is reset. You're looking for two different things, reset all settings or erase all content and settings. Reset all settings will remove all the things you've personalized like shake to shuffle, your privacy settings, notifications, all that sort of stuff. It will also change your network settings. So your passwords, Wi-Fi networks that your iPod was set up to remember, all that sort of stuff will go away. It will also remove key chain and your Apple ID password, stuff like that. Erase all content and settings does exactly what it sounds like. It completely erases your iPod and you have to set it up again as brand new. So either one is going to ask you to confirm that you want to do it when you tap it. So make sure you do want either or option when you tap it. Because it's irreversible. Thanks for watching. I'm Skylar.
