Apple launches new Data and Privacy website ready for GDPR

Apple has launched a new Data and Privacy website in order for the company to better comply with the new GDPR rules coming into effect in the European Union on Friday. While the service is available in the EU right now, it’s expected to be released worldwide in the coming months.

Once logged into the service, you'll be able to see the data that is associated with your account, delete your data, or download it. Information that you’ll be able to find pertains to sign-in records, bookmarks, contacts, documents, photos stored in iCloud, app usage stats, App Store purchase history, and AppleCare support history.

In order to download a copy of your data, if you live in the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, or Norway, press the Get started link below ‘Obtain a copy of your data’ then tick the categories that you want to download. After selecting the categories you’ll be asked how large the archives should be, you can choose 1GB, 2GB, 5GB, 10GB, or 25GB - then hit complete request. You’ll be emailed once the archives are ready to download.

Aside from downloading your data, you can also request corrections to your data, deactivate your account, and permanently delete your account. The latter will see Apple wipe all the information they hold on you, great for those who no longer need an Apple account.
