  • How to download everything Apple knows about you

The good news is that they can and have only recently launched a new privacy portal so that users will be able to download a copy of everything the company has and knows about them based on their usage of Apple's products and/or services. They can still contact Apple to request a copy of the data that the company has stored on its servers.

Users can check and download all the data by logging into the webpage with their Apple ID.

The data download selection option appears before the GDPR deadline.




The ability to download user data is available only to those in the European Union at the moment, as well as those in Iceland, Lichtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland. Users can also download all iCloud data, including photos, bookmarks, reminders, calendars, and other documents. There is a separate section for Mail, Drive, and Photos because the files may be significantly larger. Currently, users outside of the European Union can only access the options to correct data or delete accounts.

As spotted by Engadget, Apple has announced that, in the future, users all over the globe will be able to access the data that the worldwide empire of tech has collected on them. If a user deactivates their account, they will not be able to access purchases from the iTunes Store, iBooks, or the App Store and also will not be able to use Apple programs such as iMessage, FaceTime, or other iCloud services. It can take up to 7 days to permanently delete the data, and it will be a permanent deletion with no means to retrieve the deleted data.

To access the information about you, you need to log in using your Apple account information. Apple will verify all deletion and deactivation requests to keep users safe from abuse.
