Reset the iPhone with the phone. iPhone, Settings, General, Reset and Reset All or any variation you wish.

That is how Apple does it if you are exchanging the phone with them.

If for some reason you want to do it via iTunes instead of directly from phone like John suggest here is the Apple article.

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

             I am happy to say the disconnection issue with the iPhone 5S as related to online and offline activities is now resolved following a successful download and installation of the IOS.   It also pleases me that  a wipe of the iPhone 5S was not necessary.   It did feel very reassuring though knowing the procedures of wiping the iPhone 5S as an alternative resolution strategy.

             Thank you for your suggestions and information.
