How to remove a device from your Apple ID?

User accounts have been essential to the smartphone experience since the beginning. While Android devices revolve around your Google Account, for Apple, the user experience revolves around Apple ID; which uses a pre-existing email or a new one with the iCloud domain.

For those of you that are new Apple’s services, the Apple ID allows your various devices to seamlessly sync account information and utilise iCloud-based features like Continuity and Handoff.

An example of this is a feature which lets you make or answer calls from your iPhone via other Apple devices logged into your ID. Learn more about this feature here.

With how ingrained this element is to the user experience, it is essential to occasionally review devices that use your Apple ID. It prevents devices that you do not use, from having access, especially those which you do not recognise.

Thus, follow this guide to learn two methods you can use to remove any devices that you may not recognise or utilise from your Apple ID.

Removal of a device will prevent it from receiving two-factor authentication codes — essential to Apple ID logins across your devices.
