Are you looking to stop using iCloud and remove it from your iOS device? There are a couple of different ways to do this, so we’re here to show you how it’s done. In this article, we’ll be showing you how to delete iCloud from your iOS devices, including iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Since iCloud is linked to your Apple ID account, you’ll need to remove your Apple ID account from your device in order to delete iCloud. The first method we’ll show you is through your computer’s web browser. This method is the most quick and convenient because you can remove your Apple ID from multiple devices in the same place. If you prefer, you can also remove your Apple ID from your iOS device through your iOS settings.

To begin the first method, open your preferred browser and go to Enter your email address and password to sign in. Now, scroll down to your list of devices and click on a device to view details about it. You’ll see a small window pop up below, click “Remove” to sign out of your Apple ID account on that device and remove iCloud data. To confirm, click “Remove This iPhone”. Repeat these steps to remove any other devices you no longer want to use iCloud on.

The other way you can delete iCloud from your devices is through the settings on your iOS device. To begin, tap “Settings” on your home screen, then tap your name at the top. Scroll down to see a list of devices signed into your Apple ID account. Tap a device’s name to see details, and at the bottom, tap “Remove from Account” to confirm. Tap “Remove” and repeat these steps to remove your Apple ID from your other devices.

If you only want to remove your Apple ID from your iOS device and not from any other Apple devices you have, you can simply sign out. To do this, open your settings and tap your name, then scroll to the bottom and tap “Sign Out”. You’ll be prompted to turn off Find My iPhone since this tracking feature is also linked to your Apple ID. Enter your Apple ID password, then tap “Turn Off”. Some important data like contacts and calendars may be stored in iCloud instead of on your device. If you want to keep this data on your device rather than removing it along with your Apple ID account, tap the switch beside what you’d like to keep. When the switch turns from white to green, that information will be kept. When you’re ready, tap “Sign Out” at the top, and then tap “Sign Out” to confirm.
