    If possible, ask the Apple ID account holder to enter the password directly on the device. If it is not available, the account holder can log in to iCloud.com or one of its linked devices to log in to "Find Me" and then delete the affected device. This will also disable activation lock. Just ask the previous owner to follow these steps.

    1. From a web browser, sign in to iCloud.com with your Apple ID. Or go to Find iPhone/iPad app, sign in with iCloud account that used in the locked device.

    2. Click All Devices at the top/bottom of the screen. Select the device that you want to remove from iCloud. Click Erase [device]. Select Next until the device is erased.

    4. Click Remove from Account below your device name, so the iCloud account will be completely removed from your iPhone.

    5. To begin the setup process, restart the device. You can use a different Apple ID to sign in to your iCloud.

    Way 2: Ask Apple to remove the iCloud activation lock

    If you have proof of purchase, Apple will help you bypass the iCloud activation lock without any additional costs. The proof of purchase can take the following forms:

  • If you are the first owner of this device, please purchase the invoice in your name.
  • If you are the second owen of the device and the ownership is transferred from the original owner to you. Thus, you can fully prove your ownership, Apple will check whether the IMEI number of this phone has been reported as stolen. If this is not the case, they will help you get it round.

However, if you cannot prove your ownership, then they can refuse, because security and privacy are Apple's feathers and they will never compromise.
