    So when I got my new 7 plus I retired from my 6 plus backup. The glitches from that carried over to this and the battery life is not very good. Currently running 10.1 PB1. I want to restore back to the way it was out of the box and set it up as new. How do I do this?

    Put your 7Plus in DFU mode and connect it to iTunes. Restore the device and set up as new. It really is that easy

    Alternatively, you can simply go to Settings → General → Reset, and then select "Reset All Networks and Settings". After the process is finished, you will be met with the welcome screen like you were when you initially powered on the device.

    Can't he just "erase all" and start from there and then sync when done?

    But won't I still be on 10.1?

    No, iTunes will download the latest available official release.
    If you initiate a restore on your iPhone you will stay on the beta though.
    Hence my advice to do it via iTunes.

    Why do you think they're on the Beta? I don't see it mentioned. It's part of my confusion.
    It says iOS 10.1 PB1 in the OP.
    Official release is iOS 10.0.2.
    iOS 10.1 is beta. Additionally PB1 means public beta 1.

    Yes, you will. Having said that, if you want to remove iOS 10.1 beta, do as instructed by Tartarus and put your device in DFU mode and then select restore and update via iTunes when prompted.

    I did this myself actually.

    Open itunes

    Plug USB in your phone

    Hold down power button + volume down until apple logo

    Release power button, while still holding volume down

    DFU mode comes up...restore/update
