iCloud is a very useful feature on iPhone. It is also quite popular amongst iPhone users especially because of its 鈥淔ind My Phone鈥 feature. The feature allows you to remotely control your iPhone and other Apple devices and even track them.

This is pretty useful when you lose your iPhone or other Apple device. But, what you don鈥檛 know is that iCloud continues to track your iPhone even after you鈥檝e stopped using it or given it away. This is because your device remains on iCloud unless and until you delete it.

What Does 鈥淩emove Device from iCloud鈥 Do?

Removing device just delete it from the iCloud account list. But if the device is still signed in and connects to the internet, it will reappear on the list again. That鈥檚 because this procedure does not remove a device from an Apple ID remotely.
From another angle, your device data won鈥檛 be affected if you remove it from iCloud.

Note: You may find a device that you are not familiar with on your iCloud account list. You鈥檇 best remove it immediately and change a new iCloud password.
