    No. It's not even correct in English in the first place, because it isn't a question but a statement. The correct German phrase has to read Wie Sie ihr iPhone ohne Apple-ID mit iTunes zurücksetzen:. As a question, it has to read Wie setzt man ein iPhone ohne Apple-ID mit iTunes zurück? – Janka Feb 7 '18 at 6:53

    @Janka True, but (the wrong “der” aside) this type of ellipsis is frequently found (mostly as a statement, not question) in newspaper headings etc. where not much space is available. – Philipp Feb 7 '18 at 7:24
  • If it is meant as a title, to me, leaving out the "how" in German seems much more natural. For instance: *Zurücksetzen des iPhones...." oder "iPhone ohne Apple-ID.... zurücksetzen" – user1583209 Feb 7 '18 at 11:16

If you want to ask someone in person, you can say

Wie kann man ein iPhone ohne Apple-ID mit iTunes zurücksetzen?

If you want to query in google, I would remove the question altogether:

iPhone ohne Apple-ID mit iTunes zurücksetzen
