Account Recovery Removal
If you have any type of account recovery linked to your iPhone – like an iCloud backup or an iTunes backup – you need to remove it before selling your device. Otherwise, the new owner will be able to access all of your information. To remove account recovery, simply go to the Settings app on your iPhone and select the “Accounts & Passwords” option. From there, you can select the accounts you want to remove and follow the instructions onscreen.
Erase All Data
Last but not least, you’ll want to make sure that you erase all of your personal information from your old iPhone before selling it. This way, you can be sure that no one will be able to access any of your private data – like photos, messages, or financial information. There are a few different ways to erase an iPhone, so be sure to choose the method that’s right for you. Once your iPhone is erased, you can be confident knowing that your personal information is safe and sound.
These are just a few of the things you need to do before selling your iPhone. By following these simple steps, you can be sure that your transition to a new device will be smooth and hassle-free.
