Choose the device you want to remove from Find My iPhone. Once you’ve clicked on it, you’ll be taken to its device summary page. Look for the “Remove from Account” button and click on it. A confirmation dialog will pop up asking you to confirm your action. Go ahead and click on “Remove” to proceed.

Congratulations! You’ve successfully removed the device from Find My iPhone. That wasn’t so bad, was it? Now, just repeat these steps for any other devices you want to remove.

If you have an iPhone or iPad that you no longer use and it’s still logged into iCloud, you can remove it from Find My iPhone. When you remove your iPhone or iPad from iCloud and turn off Find My iPhone, it also deactivates Activation Lock at the same time.

The main reason you would want to remove Find My iPhone from your iCloud settings is if you want to give your iPhone or iPad away. Another reason would be if you want to list it on RecomHub. So before you sell your device, you need to wipe your iPhone or iPad and erase your content and settings (in Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings). When you go to erase all your information from your iPhone or iPad, you will be asked to turn off Find My iPhone and Activation Lock before you can reset your device.
