  • Best practice on giving on selling any apple device. make sure the previous user logs out of their I-Cloud account and have it wiped. If you have to take care of it once you get it. You might be able to access the device via I-Tunes. then reset back to factory default. Depending on the device and iOS version, will be key on your outcome.
