    Hello,

    I want to restore my iPhone 4S running ios 7.1.2 to its factory settings on but I don't want to update to a newer ios version.

    Can someone tell me whether restoring to factory settings also erases the ios ?
    (If it does, and I have to download a new ios, I suppose it won't have any other choice but version 9 ?)

    Thanks for any tips

    Welcome to iPhoneForums!

    Restoring your iPhone to factory settings will also install the latest software version, which is 9.1 at this moment. There's no way to install or keep a different iOS version on your device.
