1. Screen Time Restrictions

  • First browsed to Settings -> Screen Time -> Content & Privacy Restrictions
  • I disabled the Content & Privacy Restrictions feature.
  • Fact: You need to input your Screen Time passcode to be able to tweak this setting.

    Tip: If you can’t remember your Screen Time passcode you can reset it in Settings -> Screen Time -> Change Screen Time Passcode -> Forgot Passcode (You need to input the Apple ID log-in credentials that you used for setting up the initial passcode.) -> Reset Passcode.

2. Disable Screen Time

If iCloud sign out is still greyed out you have to disable Screen Time completely:
