Once you’ve ejected your iPhone, you can easily disconnect it from all other Windows 10 computers associated with your Microsoft account by going to a particular web page in Settings and clicking Disconnect next to that device. And that’s about it! By following these simple steps, you can ensure that both your computer and your iPhone stay safe during ejection procedures.
