I want to sell my iPod touch, what should I do?

I have an iPod which i very rarely used, therefore, instead of keeping it idle for extended period of time, I decided to cut my losses and just sell the thing.

Uploaded into my online business account and get a buyer in 3 days.

But then, in it ‘account’ setting is still link to my iClound. 

So what should I do?

So, here is what I did.

  1. Did not manually delete my contacts, calendars, reminder, etc since it would also deleted those same content from my other devices.
  2. So, first, I need to unpaired it with my other devices.
  3. Back up my iPod
  4. Sign out of iCloud and 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.
  5. 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.
  6. If asked for your device passcode or Restrictions passcode, enter it. Then tap Erase [device].

Well, that’s it. 

Hope it is enough, well, I think it’s enough to reset the iPod for its new owner.

May the device serves it new master well.
