I received my dad's old iPhone 5. He remembers the password, but he cannot remember his Apple ID's password, nor the security question, nor the password for the email linked to this account. I can access the phone, even jailbreak it, but how can I remove or change the password of the Apple ID?
There's no way to reset the password of the Apple ID if you don't know neither the answer to the security question nor the password to the email account linked to the Apple ID.
However, you can easily remove the Apple ID from your iPhone. To do this:
- Go to Settings > iCloud.
- At the bottom of the page, tap Delete Account.
- Tap Delete to confirm.
The Apple ID is tied to the device's serial number on Apple's servers. You cannot change it without going through Apple. Something that is technically possible, but unethical, is bypassing the Activation Lock (only if you're jailbroken, and I'm not going to cite any references), which will make your device think that it's tied to someone else's account (or no account at all), but that still doesn't change it on Apple's side.
