Apple is always at the forefront of making your iPhone data secure. Although security is paramount, it has become increasingly difficult to get into your iPhone in case you forget your Apple ID password or buy a second-hand iPhone with the previous Apple ID still logged in.

Does Removing Apple ID from iPhone Affect iCloud Account?

No, removing Apple ID has no impact on the iCloud Account. Both the Apple Account and iCloud account are two different accounts, though they can be accessed with the same email ID.

Part 1 Why You May Need to Remove Apple ID from iPhone

The presence of someone else's Apple ID on your iPhone can be a major nuisance. This issue might arise due to two major reasons. Firstly, you might have bought a used iPhone and the previous owner's Apple ID is logged into the device. Secondly, it could be an acquaintance that used your iPhone and use their Apple ID to access to Apple App Store but forgot to sign out.

In both cases, it can become an impediment to use your iPhone with other people's Apple ID. For example, the inability to download a new app from the App Store or restore app purchases made from your ID. Another problem is that all the photos taken will be backed up to the iCloud of the logged-in individual rather than your account.

Due to these reasons, it might become necessary to remove Apple ID from an iPhone.
