First of all, launch the 4uKey Apple Unlocker on your computer. On its interface, locate the Remove Apple ID tab in the bottom left corner and hit it to start.
On the next page, 4uKey will prompt you to connect your iPad to the computer. Do it anyway.
After 4uKey detects the status of your iPad, it will ask you if this device has a lock screen. Click Yes to confirm.
If you haven’t added a screen lock on this iPad, follow the path to create one:
iPad – Settings – Face ID & Passcode (or Touch ID & Passcode) – Turn Passcode On. There, type in a passcode twice to complete the setup.
Then, 4uKey will ask you if the Two-Factor Authentication is enabled on the iPad. If you have no idea if it’s on, check here:
- iPad – Settings – Apple ID – Password & Security – Two-Factor Authentication. Turn it on if it’s off currently.
Click Yes to proceed.
We will have to download the removal firmware on this computer. On 4uKey, click on the Download button to start the process.
As the firmware is loaded on this computer, 4uKey will say that we’re good to go to start the Apple ID removal. Click Start Remove on the program.
After the removal is done on 4uKey, there’s one more step to do. Launch your iPad and set it up like a new one.
During the setup, iPad will ask you to activate this iPad by entering the previous Apple account and password. On that screen, locate the Unlock With Passcode option, and tap on it.
Then, choose to Use Device Passcode to bypass this Activation Lock screen. You’re in! There you have it, an iPad without Apple ID.
You can now log in to your own Apple ID and start to download items from Apple Store. Or, if this is about to be given or sold, this iPad is ready.
