To thoroughly give iPhone a clean, you can take advantage of a professional iOS cleaning tool, like Tenorshare iCareFone, which is not only capable of removing the unnecessary junk files, temp files, large files, but also erase some personal data including bank account, contacts, emails with one click so that prevent the privacy leakage.
