Hello people,

I've got a Macbook Air running on Catalina I need to return to my company. At the time of setting it up, I connected with my Apple ID to be able to have some file sync, notes etc across devices.

I would like now to remove anything related to my Apple ID on this computer.
I removed this device using this method:
Essentially using Appleid.apple.com , logging in there and removing the device.

But its a joke...my iCloud drive is still on the mac, the settings for the said Apple ID are still available, my email is in there etc.

This is what I see post having done the operation of removing the device from the Apple ID with the method mentioned above. I also restarted the computer.

Any idea how I can hard delete my iCloud and Apple ID in a proper way?
