Remove Your iCloud Account

IOS7 comes with a new feature that deters the theft of Apple devices, it is called Activation Lock. This feature will need to be removed before sending in any devices to us as we cannot fully check a device with this feature still enabled.

If you are running iOS6 or below, removing your device from your iCloud account is not required. To find out which iOS version your device is currently running on go to Settings ► General ► About ► Version.
