For the last few months, partly due to the European Union’s obligation, Apple has been allowing you to download all the data it has stored about you . This is something that many companies have been forced to do in Europe, but Apple has extended this tool to the rest of the world.

It is currently available in United States, Australia, Canada, Iceland, Liechtenstein, New Zealand, Norway and Switzerland, in addition to the European Union . But all indications are that it will continue to expand.

This is not something hidden and difficult, Apple has made everything very clear so that anyone can request their data without any major problem. To do so, just follow these steps:

  • The first thing is to access Apple’s privacy website.
  • Once there we will need to log in with our Apple ID.
  • In the first section appears Get a copy of your data, click on Start.

We are now on the Apple page where you can request your details. We have a list of a large number of Apple applications and services that have data about us. You’ll see options such as App Store Activity, iTunes Store, iBooks Store, and Apple Music, our official repair history, contacts, notes, and more.

The larger files such as documents from iCloud Drive, iCloud Mail and our iCloud Photo Library are separate , as there can be several GB of data inside.

To download the data of only one section, check the box of that section, go down and click on continue. Also we have the option to select all , although in this case the copy could be very large.

By clicking on continue Apple gives us the option to download the files in a maximum size . If it takes up more, we’ll have several files of that size. Once we’ve chosen it we click on Complete Application.
