How to Erase iPhone Data without Restore?

Most of people worry about their private data would be revealed and stealed by other unknown people if they sell their old iPhones for getting a new one. Therefore, they choose to restore the iPhone to the factory default settings and feel safe because after the restoring, all the data are gone and we can't see any data on the iPhone. However, Apple doesn't delete your iPhone data, which means it can be easy to access the deleted data on your iPhone.
