iCloud is pretty amazing, really. Thanks to a bunch of servers parked hundreds (or thousands) of miles away from you, you can access all of your files via your Apple phone, tablet, or computer at any time and from anywhere you have a decent internet connection.

Thus, at times, you’ll want to log out of iCloud. So let’s show you how to do that.
