Apple Allowing users download all iCloud and Apple ID data

Bloomberg reports that customers will be able to download a copy of the data stored across Apple’s apps and services, including their Contacts stored in iCloud, Calendar information, Photos, Music preferences, and more.

The report also notes how the company will allow users to delete their accounts without directly contacting Apple, and will give them the power to update/correct personal information and disable their Apple ID account on-demand.

"The iPhone maker said it will update its web page for managing Apple IDs in coming months to let users download a copy of all their data stored with the company. The site will also let customers correct personal information, temporarily deactivate their account, and completely delete it."
The data trove will be accessible through the company's Apple ID Web portal. People will also be able to correct personal information, temporarily deactivate an account, or delete one entirely.

The options will come to Europe in early May before spreading to other regions. People were previously able to accomplish the same tasks, but typically only by contacting Apple and requesting it.

Today's iOS and tvOS updates also include notes better detailing Apple's privacy policies, and how data is used in individual apps. New iconography highlights when an Apple app wants to share personal data.

In recent years the E.U. has often adopted a tough stance on privacy, for instance enacting a "right to be forgotten" from Google searches.

At this month's China Development Forum, Apple CEO Tim Cook called for stringent privacy safeguards —even though the Chinese government regularly snoops on residents and now has full access to local iCloud accounts if it wants it.
