Written by Stephen King

Your iPhone can be integrated with an iCloud account easily with the help of a login user ID and password. This feature opens doors to a world of possibilities with icloud access on your fingertips. It might be stressful in the beginning however, upon using the feature for a few days, you would start loving it. Once you have set up an iCloud account, it exists forever. One can manually delete any type of content from the iCloud account or even stop using it permanently, but Apple provides no way to cancel an iCloud account. But still, one can remove individual iCloud features or remove a device from Find My Device or remove an iCloud account completely from a device.

Disable Individual Features:

To disable specific features of an iCloud service, go to System preferences iCloud app and uncheck the unwanted features that you do not want to use on the device. In some cases, it asks for keeping associated data with the unchecked features to delete or not. If you delete the data from the device it will remain in the cloud. In the future, we enable the feature the data is available to us.

Remove a device from Find My Device:

When the Find My Device feature is turn on iOS device one can lock or wipe the contents in the device from remote locations if the device was lost or stolen. If an individual wants to sell the device to others, and that device signed in to iCloud account, make sure to remove the device from Find My Device. And before buying a used device, check whether the previous owner did the same. One can remove a device from Find my device either by turning off Find My device in system preferences or by removing iCloud account permanently. To check more go to http://www.icloudremover.org.
