I went to https://privacy.apple.com/ and deleted my account, because I
want to give my Ipad Air to someone. I can verify my account no longer
exists, but the Ipad still prompts me for my password and ID.
I know now that I should have reset it before I deleted the account,
but it's too late.
Can anyone tell me how to reset the Ipad to factory specifications, in
a situation like this?
I know it recently updated to ios 12.
Follow Apple's instructions:
What to do before you sell, give away, or trade in your iPhone, iPad, or
iPod touch Use these steps to remove your personal information from a
device, even if you don't have it anymore.
If you still have your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
Before you sell, give away, or trade in your device, you should remove
your personal information. You shouldn't manually delete your contacts,
calendars, reminders, documents, photos, or any other iCloud information
while you're signed in to iCloud with your Apple ID. This would delete
your content from the iCloud servers and any of your devices signed in
Follow these steps:
1. If you paired an Apple Watch with your iPhone, unpair your Apple Watch.
2. Back up your device.
3. Sign out of iCloud and the iTunes & App Store.
* If you're using iOS 10.3 or later, tap Settings > [your name]. Scroll
down and tap Sign Out. Enter your Apple ID password and tap Turn Off.
* If you're using iOS 10.2 or earlier, tap Settings > iCloud > Sign
Out. Tap Sign Out again, then tap Delete from My [device] and enter
your Apple ID password. Then go to Settings > iTunes & App Store >
Apple ID > Sign Out.
4. Go back to Settings and tap General > Reset > Erase All Content and
Settings. If you turned on Find My iPhone, you might need to enter your
Apple ID and password.
5. If asked for your device passcode or Restrictions passcode, enter it.
Then tap Erase [device].
6. If you're switching to a non-Apple phone, deregister iMessage.
7. Contact your carrier for help transferring service to a new owner. If
you aren't using a SIM card with your device, you can contact them to
get help transferring service to the new owner.
When you erase your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, Find My iPhone and
Activation Lock is turned off.
If you no longer have your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
If the steps above weren't completed and you no longer have your device,
use these steps:
1. Ask the new owner to erase all content and settings using the above
2. If you're using iCloud and Find My iPhone on the device, sign in to
iCloud.com or the Find My iPhone app on another device, select the
device, and click Erase. After the device has been erased, click Remove
3. If you can't follow either of the above steps, change your Apple ID
password. This won't remove personal information that's stored on your
old device, but it prevents the new owner from deleting your information
4. If you're switching to a non-Apple phone, deregister iMessage.
5. If you're using Apple Pay, you can remove your credit or debit cards
at iCloud.com. Choose Settings to see which devices are using Apple Pay,
then click the device. Next to Apple Pay, click Remove.
