Download, install and open Tenorshare 4uKey software on your PC/Mac. Once the software is launched, you will come up with 2 options, directly click on "Unlock Apple ID".
Connect your iPhone to PC/Mac using lightening cable. Soon your device will be detected and you will see a message saying unlock the device and tap on "Trust" option.
Click on "Start" button to initiate the procedure of wiping Apple ID that associated with your iPhone.
Now you will come across one of these situation. Just know in which situation you lie so that you can proceed accordingly.
1st Situation: "Find My iPhone" option is OFF

  • a.As soon as Tenorshare 4uKey will detect your device, it will remove Apple ID that is associated with your iPhone and your data won't be deleted too.
    • b.It will take few minutes to complete the process. Keep calm and wait until you don't see a completion message on your screen. 2nd Situation: "Find My iPhone" option is ON
    • a.In case this option is turned ON, first you need to reset settings than only you can remove Apple ID. Go to Settings >> Tap on General >> Tap on Reset All Settings.
    • b.Soon your device will be reset and it will automatically restart then the software will begin to remove the Apple ID.
    • c.Finally you have deleted Apple ID lock of your iPhone. Also never use the same old Apple ID to log-in into Apple Account, instead create a new one and use it.
    • Tenorshare 4uKey can resolve any of the unlocking process, only it can't solve the issue when Activation Lock is locked.

everytime you buy an iPhone whatever its version you have to ask the seller to deactivate "find my iPhone" and sign out of his ID, so you can create a new one.

SOURCE: How can i bypass iphone 4 apple id and password to activate

You can't, the sole purpose of an Iphone is to use the apple ID. What you can do, is create a Apple ID, just with a email and being over 13. The process is very simple, just search it up. :D

SOURCE: I bought an iPhone 5s 32gb in Utah from game stop I am mow in California this iPhone was cloud locked and I was unaware is there anyway to activate this iPhone or bypass the activation and reset it

When you buy a used iPhone, and turn it on, after the Apple icon disappears you should see a screen that says "Hello" or "Hallo" or "Hola". At he bottom it should say "slide to set up" in English or another language.

No password of any type is required to continue.

If you don't get this, it means the previous owner did not completely clear their information out of the phone.

Apple support may be able to help you. Or, you might get support from the carrier if you're using the same carrier the phone was previously on.

If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at

Good Morning
That happens to me, I forget, then I write in the website line Apple then a curtain falls down and I scroll down to "create an Apple ID ",
click and start creating a new Apple ID, another way is to write in the Google search line "create a new Apple id"
hope this can be of use to you as it has been for me.

How to reset icloud id on a iphone 5 that i buy on ebay?

You really bought a phone that is locked. Perhaps even the owner does not know you have it.
Only the person with the Apple id, ending with knows the password. If he is willing to give you the Apple ID and the password, this phone was setup with, you can unlock the phone. If not, you won't be able to do so.
I don't want to frighten you, but most likely you bought a stolen phone.
The security in that phone is so good, nobody, till now has broken this.
