How to View and Delete Devices from Apple ID

How to Check Which Devices Have Been Signed into your Apple ID and Remove Them

There are several reasons such as uncompromised security, premium quality; attractive design and more why I prefer Apple devices. Whether it’s Mac, iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch, each one of them stands out of the rest, doesn’t it?

Managing more than one Apple devices is quite simple. Most people, including me, use a single Apple ID in order to manage their devices with a bit ease. Moreover, there are some handy benefits of keeping all Apple devices signed in with the same iCloud account. As for instance, it allows you to automatically sync your data across all the devices, auto-download apps etc.

It’s important to remove the device from Apple ID after you have sold it out, given away to someone or lost it. Fortunately, Apple makes it quite easy to not only check which device has been signed into your Apple ID but also allows you to remove it.
