How to Sign Out of iPhone 13 in iOS 15

If you share your iPhone 5 with someone else, or if you want to allow a friend or child to borrow your iPhone 5 for a little while, then you may be concerned about them purchasing or downloading items with your Apple ID.

One way to combat this is to sign out of your Apple ID. This is also going to do things like remove access to Apple Cash, Apple Pay, Apple Watch, and iCloud data, as well as remove safari passwords and more.

This will allow someone using your phone to still have access to games and apps that you have installed, but they will not be able to purchase or download anything that requires your Apple ID.

The steps above discuss several ways to sign out of an Apple ID immediately on an iPhone or iPad. While the method has been fairly similar for multiple versions of iOS, it has changed enough that some people who might have been accused to click Apple ID log out options on older iPhone devices may struggle to find that option in newer models.

If you try to tap Sign Out to remove Apple ID active logins from your iPhone, but you are seeing a message like “Sign out is not available due to restrictions” then you will need to unlock Apple ID permissions so that you can sign in with a new Apple ID.

You can do this by turning off a screen time passcode.

The screen time feature on the iPhone provides a way for you to limit the amount of time that you or a child spends on their iPhone. This replaced the previous “Restrictions” setting that was used to control certain elements on the device.

you can disable the Screen Time passcode by going to Settings > Screen Time > Turn Off Screen Time > then enter your Screen Time passcode and tap Turn Off Screen Time again to confirm.

You should now be able to go back to Settings > Apple ID > Sign Out and complete the process.
