How to delete iCloud account from iPad


Juggling multiple Apple IDs is not advisable. Every purchase we make in the Apple Store is associated with that account and cannot be transferred to others, unless the developer allows the use of the same purchase in several different accounts, as it allows us to do In Family, where the organizer is in charge of authorizing all purchases made in the group that manages.

On various occasions, for whatever reason, we have been forced to change our iCloud account to a different one. Despite the process does not involve difficulties, it is likely that if you do not perform the steps correctly, you could encounter problems with application purchases (they are not associated with the corresponding account), find problems of loss of synchronization or loss of data, problems to recover applications associated with a specific ID ... to give some examples.

It is recommended if we have several Apple IDs would be to try to unify them all in one so as not to have to change the association of our device (Family is fine, but until the developers get mental and adapt it en masse, playing with several accounts can mess us up a lot instead of facilitating our work, which is why would have created). If you are users of several Apple devices, you will know that when you associate a new device with your Apple ID, all devices receive a message where the new device added to the group of devices that we have is communicated.

Delete iCloud account from iPad

  • First of all we must go to Settings> iCloud.
  • Within iCloud we will go to the end of the screen where it is displayed Logout.


  • We click on Close session and then the device will show us a sign where it informs us that if we close session, all documents as well as data stored via iCloud will be deleted. Example: if we have the calendar and contacts synchronized with iCloud, all this data will be deleted when you log out.
  • If we want to continue, we must click on Close session and enter the password of our Apple ID.

    How can I delete the email account associated with iCloud. It asks me for an Apple ID associated with that email that no longer exists and I don't remember. In addition, since the last update it asks me to accept the new iCloud conditions and when I try the system hangs and does not complete the operation. Thanks

      Almost the same thing happened to me, only with an alienware and my friend tells me that he does not even remember his account name, and here I doubt they will help us, but in the remote case that someone does, it happened to me with him iPad mini 3!
