iCloud Removal for iOS devices
Whether you are using your own iDevice or if you have just bought a used iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, there is always the possibility of finding yourself locked out of your iCloud activation screen, for not knowing your iCloud password. If this situation does indeed come to pass, then you might find yourself in quite a bit of trouble as now you can’t restore your iCloud account and are basically stuck with an unusable device. You might even consider selling your device, but such drastic measures are no longer necessary thanks to the iCloud Removal service.
iCloud removal is provided by online tools that allow you to remove or unlock the problematic iCloud account from your device permanently and associate your device with your own iCloud account. This allows you to reactivate the locked iCloud account, but it should be noted that the service has very strict policies that don’t make it available for devices reported lost or stolen.
Why choose iCloud removal?
As mentioned previously, the main reason you might choose to remove your iCloud account could be because you are locked out of your account, but this is not the only reason that could prompt iCloud removal from an iDevice. Here are some of the other instances where you might need to remove your iCloud account.
- If you have been locked out of your iDevice which has already been activated, or if you are having problems getting iCloud to work properly, then it might be better to remove the account and add it again. Here, the removal is not permanent as you once again activate iCloud.
- If you have just bought a used iDevice, then the device might still be activated on the previous owner’s account. In such an instance, you would need to permanently remove the iCloud account from your device in order to associate it with your own iCloud account.
- Another situation that would require iCloud removal, is if you are planning to sell your device. Simply deleting your iCloud account doesn’t get rid of the information related with the account and can actually be retrieved using the proper data recovery tools. In this case, it is recommended to use an iCloud removal tool to permanently erase your data.
