I have made many attempts to remove the apple id and ended up failing, and now I can't access anything on the device. Is it possible to remove apple id from iPhone 13 without password? If yes, then what should I do?"

Failing to access Apple services is indeed a tricky problem which could appear when you buy a used iPhone 13 with previous Apple ID unremoved or you forget your Apple ID password. In this blog, we will show you full solutions on how to remove Apple ID from iPhone 13/13 mini/13 Pro (Max).

Part 1: Why Do I Need to Remove the Apple ID from iPhone 13?

Designed to protect users' information, Apple ID is required whenever users want to get access to Apple services, such as backing up data or downloading software from the App store. Now that the importance of Apple ID is clear, then how come you need to remove it from your iPhone 13/13 mini/13 Pro (Max)?

There can be several reasons to explain why you need to remove the Apple ID from your device.

  • You forgot your Apple ID or Apple ID password. In this case, you can try to get back your password firstly. But if you couldn't recover your password, then you may need to remove the old Apple ID from your iPhone 13/13 mini/13 Pro (Max) so as to create a new Apple ID account on the device.
  • You bought/got a used iPhone 13/13 mini/13 Pro (Max) from someone else, but found that there is still an existing Apple ID belonging to the original owner. If you don't delete or remove someone else's Apple ID on your iPhone, you will fail to acquire different services on the device since you have no idea what the password is.
  • You are planning to sell or give away your iPhone 13/13 mini/13 Pro (Max) to someone else. If you sell or give away the device with your Apple ID signed in, not only the new iPhone owner can get access to your personal data, but also any data he store in the device, say, photos he take, will be synchronized to your own iCloud, causing data leakage and inconvenience to both of you. So it's necessary to remove your Apple ID first so that the new owner can login with his own account.
