This article will show you some of the most effective ways to remove the Apple ID from your iPhone or iPad if you don’t have the password.
The solutions we outline below are effective and will help you remove the Apple ID quickly and easily.
Let’s begin with the most effective one of them.
If you are looking for a solution that is so simple, it doesn’t require a lot of tech expertise, but will work even if Find my iPhone is not enabled on the device, we recommend iToolab UnlockGo. This is the ultimate tool to use when your device is locked or it has an Apple ID associated with it and you don’t know the password.
The following are some of its most notable features:
Download and install the program on to your computer and then follow these simple steps to use it to reset the device and then remove the Apple ID:
Step 1: Run UnlockGo and connect the device to the computer. Click “Unlock Screen Passcode” in the main window and click “Start” to begin.
Step 2: In the next window, click “Download” to begin downloading the firmware that you will need to install to unlock the device.
Step 3: When the download is complete, click “Unlock Now” to allow the program to unlock the device.
Step 4: When the unlocking process is complete, go back to the main window and this time, choose “Remove iCloud Activation Lock” to begin deleting the Apple ID. Click “Start” to begin.
Step 5: In the next window, you should see information about the jailbreak package that is needed to remove the Apple ID. Click “Start” to begin downloading the needed package.
Step 6: When the jailbreak package has been downloaded, click on “Jailbreak” to begin jailbreaking the device.
Step 7: Click “Remove” when the jailbreak is complete and the device will begin removing the Apple ID from the device. The process should be completed in just a few minutes.
You can also remove the Apple ID from the device directly from the iCloud website. Here’s how to do it:
Step 1: On any browser, go to https://www.icloud.com/ and sign in to the account using your Apple ID and password. If you don’t know the password if this is a second-hand device, ask the previous owner to provide the password.
Step 2: Select “Find iPhone” once signed in.
Step 3: Locate the device under the “My Devices” section and select it.
Step 4: You should see four options appear. Select “Remove from Account” and Find my iPhone will be disabled, thereby removing the iCloud Activation Lock on the device.
If the Apple ID is yours and you have forgotten the password, it makes more sense to just create a new one rather than delete the account. Follow these simple steps to create a new password:
Step 1: On any browser, go to https://appleid.apple.com/ and then click on “Forgot Apple ID or Password?”.
Step 2: When prompted, enter your Apple ID and then click “Continue”.
Step 3: Select how you want to reset your password. You can either choose to get an email or answer the security questions.
Step 4: Follow the instructions in that message to create a new password for your Apple ID.
You can also just create a new account although you will need to remember the security questions and answers to reset the email.
