iCloud: Manage your devices

Manage your devices

You can use Settings on iCloud.com to see a list of your devices—iOS devices (iOS 8 or later), Mac computers (OS X 10.10 or later), Apple TV (3rd generation or later), and Apple Watch—that are signed in to iCloud using the same Apple ID you use for iCloud.com. You can also mark your Apple Watch as missing, and remove a device you don’t have anymore.

See your devices

  1. Go to Settings on iCloud.com, then look at the My Devices section.

    If you don’t see the My Devices section, your account just has access to iCloud web-only features. To gain access to other iCloud features, set up iCloud on your iOS device or Mac.

  2. To see more information about a device, select it in the list.

You can’t see a device’s complete serial number on iCloud.com, but there are other ways you can find it:

  • On your iOS device: Go to Settings > [your name] (or Settings > iCloud > Apple ID > Details), then select a device.

  • On your Mac: Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click iCloud, click Account Details, click Devices, then select a device.

Mark your Apple Watch as missing

If your Apple Watch with watchOS 3 is missing, turn on Lost Mode in Find My iPhone to lock it and keep track of its location.

If your Apple Watch with watchOS 2 is missing, and it has Activation Lock enabled, you can mark it as missing by following the steps below. That way, your Apple ID and password are required to reactivate and use your Apple Watch. If it’s set up to use Apple Pay, Apple Pay is disabled for your Apple Watch, and your cards are removed from it, even if it’s offline.

  1. Go to Settings on iCloud.com, then look at the My Devices section.

    If you don’t see the My Devices section, your account just has access to iCloud web-only features. To gain access to other iCloud features, set up iCloud on your iOS device or Mac.

  2. In the list of devices, select the Apple Watch you want to mark as missing.

  3. Below the serial number, click “Is this device missing?”

If your iOS device or Mac is missing, turn on Lost Mode in Find My iPhone to lock it and keep track of its location.

Remove a device you lost, sold, or gave away

If you’re no longer using an iOS device, a Mac, or an Apple TV, you can remove it from your account by following the steps below. When you remove a device set up to use Apple Pay, Apple Pay is disabled for the device, and your cards are removed from the device, even if the device is offline.

You can also remove your Apple Watch.

  • If it has watchOS 3, remove it from Find My iPhone.

  • If it has watchOS 2, remove it by following the steps below.

    However, if you’re still looking for your Apple Watch with watchOS 2, and it has Activation Lock enabled, mark it as missing instead of removing it. That way, your Apple ID and password are required to reactivate and use your Apple Watch. If your Apple Watch has Activation Lock enabled, and you don’t mark it as missing before you remove it, Activation Lock is disabled when you remove it. You might want that to happen if you sold or gave away your Apple Watch with watchOS 2 but forgot to disable Activation Lock.

  1. Go to Settings on iCloud.com, then look at the My Devices section.

    If you don’t see the My Devices section, your account just has access to iCloud web-only features. To gain access to other iCloud features, set up iCloud on your iOS device or Mac.

  2. In the list of devices, click the one you want to remove.

  3. Click the Delete button next to the device. If you don’t see the Delete button, click Remove Device (below the device’s serial or IMEI number).

Besides removing an iOS device or a Mac from iCloud, you can remove it from Find My iPhone in iCloud preferences on a Mac, or in Settings > [your name] > iCloud (or Settings > iCloud) on an iOS device.

If you remove a device from iCloud, and the device reconnects to the Internet, it reappears in the My Devices section of Settings.

If one of your devices isn’t listed, make sure it’s set up for iCloud with the Apple ID you used to sign in to iCloud.com. If it’s an iOS device, make sure it has iOS 8 or later. If it’s a Mac, make sure it has OS X 10.10 or later.
