Apple allows you to download all data which it collects from you

Apple Privacy Portal

Back in March, when Facebook's Cambridge Analytica debacle was still front-page news, Apple revealed that it would be debuting a new privacy hub on its website to allow users to access and download all of their personal data that has been stored on Apple's servers.

To help the user manage such large amounts of downloaded data, Apple also throws in the ability to select a preferred maximum file size. Social media apps, websites, laptops, smartphones, and tablets all collect and store data based on the user, with some of the data being personal. Apple will separate your data into 1 GB to 25 GB increments to make it easier for you to download.

The official blog post describes in detail how users can download data from the Apple Privacy portal, type of data available and answers to questions that could arise in the mind of users. Apple is now also allowing users to deactivate their account temporarily or get rid of it permanently.

"The complete set of self-service data and privacy tools is now available to customers in the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland". Likewise, you'll be able to get information on physical in-store and online purchases, as well as Apple Care repairs.

Apple blocks Steam's plan to extend its video games to iPhones
One of the biggest stories for PC gamers and mobile gaming enthusiasts is the recent release of the Steam Link mobile app . So that developers can not sidestep these fees, Apple demands that all purchases must be made through the App Store.

However, 9to5Mac reports Apple is preparing to roll out this feature to all users worldwide.

You can download any or all of the data. This means that your Apple ID data, as well as data you've synced through various apps and processes, including Apple Music and the iCloud, will be available.

Like deactivation requests, requesting to delete all data must be verified and takes up to seven days.

From there, users will be able to correct their data, or deactivate the account in order to restrict Apple's access to the data.
