    Guys,

    I'm going to sell my iPhone 5 to a co-worker and buy myself the iPhone 6+.

    What is the proper way to disassociate my Apple ID with my iPhone 5 so that he could activate it or restore without it prompting him for my Apple ID?

    - Do I just turn off fine my phone?
    - Do I sign out of iCloud and then wipe the phone?

    Appreciate the help.

    Yes and yes. Of course if there are any issues, you’ll be there to assist, right?;)

    A co-worker of mine is buying my iPhone 5 for a friend of his and taking it back to India with him. I already verified that the phone is unlocked and tried multiple SIM cards to be sure. I'm trying to anticipate any potential issues that may arise prior to the device being overseas.

    The last thing I would want to hear back is that the person tried to setup the iPhone and was prompted for my iCloud credentials. :eek:

    I meant no harm. As far as I know, yes, you’ve done it all. If you can successfully reset the phone (settings > general > reset > erase all...) you’re good. Any potential issue should show up there if it’s gonna bite you.
