Buying a second-hand iPhone is certainly cost-saving, but there can be instances when the previous owner’s Apple ID is still signed in. Now, this is a problem as with an already existing ID, all your photos, videos, etc., will be backed up to that person’s Apple ID instead of your own. Moreover, you won’t be able to download any new apps too. Therefore, it is important to remove previous Apple ID from used iPhone.

Before you begin using your iPhone, it is essential that you have logged in using your Apple ID, and for that, you need to remove your previous Apple ID from your used iPhone. But don’t worry if you don’t know how to do it. Here, in this article, we have talked about two ways to remove previous Apple ID from used iPhone. So, let’s begin.
