3Transfer Any Corporate Data From Your Old Device to Your New One
Your company’s IT department can configure the new device to get any corporate data off the old one.

You can use the “factory data reset” function on Android-based devices or the “reset” feature on an Apple iPhone or iPad to wipe all the data from the device before shutting it down for good or giving it to someone else. However, before making such a reset move, check with your IT department if the device is part of your company’s BYOD program.
