Hey Guys..

 

Through the years of owning apple devices it has never accured to me to de-authorize them before selling. Now, this must be the MOST STUPIDEST CONCEPT!!! @APPLE!!!! I Still have 3 of my devices why would i want to make unnecessary work by de-auth all 5 and then reauth 3 again.. that is seriously inconvient. why can i not see a list of devices and de-auth the ones i dont have anymore? Apple might be big, but seriously where is customer satisfation and the user friendliness that apple once had?

 

So how do i de-auth just the 2 devices i no longer own?

    Why would you not deauthorize before selling a computer?  This is not a stupid concept.  It is the way it works.  Not sure why you blame your failure to deauthorize on Apple.

     

    " why would i want to make unnecessary work by de-auth all 5 and then reauth 3 again.. that is seriously inconvient."

     

    This is the way it works, as you have failed to deauthorize the old computers.  It is a very simple and very quick process to authorize a computer.

     

    "why can i not see a list of devices and de-auth the ones i dont have anymore? "

     

    Becasue there is no list and this is not a feature of itunes.

     

    "So how do i de-auth just the 2 devices i no longer own?"

     

    You don't.

     

    You know the answer, you simply do not want to do it.

     

    In the time it took you to complain about this you could have deauthorized all and the authorized the active computers.  It would be done by now.  It seems you have chosen an even more inconvenient way to handle this.
