Other Ways

If the user completes the procedure but restoring the backup does not fix the issue, then they can start with a new iOS install on the device. The advantage of doing so is that it will clear the device completely and the user can start over.

Ensure that you must have backed up the data on iCloud before doing a clean install as it will not save your photos, apps, contacts. It will not save the Health data or messages which you can do by using a third-party app to export or import Health app data.

When the user completes the procedure, then all the essential data will be backed up in cloud service, and then you can install the fresh install on the device. This will set up as a new device with clear memory, and then you can install apps of your choice.
