Apple now allows you to download all the data it keeps about you, your purchases, and how you interact with Apple services.
It started providing an easy way for European users to request this data earlier this year through GDPR, but now the website is available to Americans, too.
So last week, I requested what Apple knows about me after 10 years of heavily using Apple products. After five days, Apple sent me an email with download links to nearly 17 GB of data including my entire iCloud drive. On the website, you can also ask Apple to correct what it knows about you and delete your account.
Apple has aggressively positioned itself as the tech giant that’s most aligned with users on security and privacy, and Apple CEO Tim Cook has even gone so far as to say that privacy is a human right. So Apple’s user data interface needs to be stellar to match up with its rhetoric.
