Switching Apple IDs If you go to Settings > iCloud and Sign Out, everything should stay safely on your phone with the exception of iCloud Drive documents and photos from your Photo Library. If you were to then sign into a different Apple ID, such as a newly created one, you could turn things like Contacts and Calendars. I say should because if you get any ...
