How to Close iCloud Account from iPhone/iPad
Here is a step by step guide on how to close your old iCloud account.
Option 1. Removing the Existing iCloud Account from iOS
Your first course of action is getting rid of the active iCloud account from your iOs device.
Firstly, you’ll need to remove the existing iCloud account that is in use on the iOS device:
Step 1. Go to the settings app on your device and navigate to the option that says ‘iCloud.
Step 2. Under the settings tab, at the bottom, you will see an option that says, “Delete account’’. Click it.

After carefully completing all the above steps, you will now be given the option to login from a new iCloud account. Depending on your preferences, you can either login from another iCloud account or make a new Apple ID and login from the iCloud account associated with that Apple ID.
