So the answer is the same message will be displayed if you are trying to create more than three iCloud accounts on that particular iOS device.

Unfortunately, there is no other way to get rid of this message, that means you will have to face this error message when you try to create a fourth iCloud account on the same iOS device that previously been used to create the three iCloud accounts.

The solution is here, Maximum number of free accounts have been activated on iPhone

Note: if you know old account, but don’t wont to use in future, then we can delete apple ID via iMore instructions or iCloud account on our deletion request from your account settings.

We recommend you rather than creating new iCloud account re-use any one account that you had created before. Alternatively, you can create a new iCloud account using another iOS device on which still limit of three iCloud accounts isn’t exceed. Aside from another iDevice, there is one more option available for you that is to use Mac to create the new iCloud account.

Note: If you are creating a new iCloud account on Windows that it might not work well on iPhone or iPad, so kindly use Mac to get perfect results.

Once you have created a new iCloud account using Mac or another iOS device, then you can easily sign-in with that new Apple ID on the device that is showing the iCloud maximum number of free accounts have been activated on iPhone because that device has been used already to create three iCloud accounts.

Anyhow, we can not cross the limit that connected with your iOS device’s hardware registration.

Most of the Cases this problem happen on old iPhone models (iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 5S or new 2018 iPhone and iPad. ). But the solution is the same for all iOS devices.
