How do I delete an iCloud account?

Did you change your mind and wish to return a product? Hubside.Store walks you through to return your device in the best conditions.

Your Apple device is connected to an iCloud account to ensure its security. Before sending it back, you need to deactivate your iCloud account. Don’t forget to send also the return form available from your client account or the withdrawal form available at the end of the general terms and conditions.

Procedure for your iPhone or iPad:

  • Go to the Settings application, then click on your iCloud account (1st line)
  • Choose “Disconnect” (at the very bottom of the screen) and confirm your choice in the dialog box that opens.
  • Return to the Settings home page, then click on “General“.
  • Select “Delete content and settings” and confirm your choice.

Now that your personal data has been erased, you can safely return your iPhone or iPad.

Your personal data is no longer accessible on the device, so you can return it with peace of mind.
