Apple Now Lets You Download Your Personal Data & History

apple download private dataIn the EU, Apple has been required to allow customers to access and download all their personal data since last May including bookmarks, purchase history, photos, calendars and more. Starting today, customers in the US are also able to download their data from Apple’s privacy page.

Once logged-in to their accounts (which may result in a device confirmation code being sent), Apple users can also make any corrections to their personal information, deactivate their account temporarily, or delete their account permanently.

When accessing the download page users are required to select the specific data they want such as Game Center activity, iCloud Contacts, and AppleCare support history. Apple says the download request may take up to seven days but also warns backups of iCloud Drive, iPhoto and Apple Mail files may be too large and take a long time to download.

The software does, however, ask for the maximum file size customers are able to download, in which case files can be separated into sections. For example, a customer may choose that 1GB file be the maximum size per download.

25GB is currently the max file size allowed from Apple’s website.

To get a download of your personal data jump over to Apple’s newly updated Data & Privacy page.
