In the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, it’s now possible to request all of the data Apple has collected on you through devices such as iPhone and Mac. The tool is part of a revised Privacy mini-site that the company uses to explain its stance on user privacy.
After logging into this page with your Apple ID, you can get a copy of your data, correct your data, or deactivate or delete your account. Your data once received from Apple, will include a copy of your data from apps and services. As such, it can consist of purchase and app usage history and the data you store with Apple, such as calendars, photos, and documents.
It’s free to request your data report, and Apple promises to fulfill all requests within seven business days.
Apple will notify you as soon as your data becomes available to download from the Apple ID website. The archive must be downloaded within 14 days of making the request before it’s deleted.
For more on information on requesting your personal data from Apple, be sure to take a look at our how-to report on the subject, which was first published in May.
