Here's How to Download All the Data Apple Collects About You

Here's How to Download Your Data:

You can download all your data with a few simple clicks on the privacy portal.

  • Log in to privacy.apple.com on your Mac, PC, or iPad.
  • Select the Get started link under the "Obtain a copy of your data" heading in Manage your data.
  • You can press 'Select All' to download everything or tick the boxes of the data categories you want to download. iCloud data are provided into a separate list as this data may be large and can take a long time to download.
  • Apple splits up the data into chunks, which ranges from 1 GB up to a maximum of 25 GB, letting you select your preferred maximum file size. Select a size and hit 'Continue.'

Your download is now in progress, and Apple will send you an email when the files are available to download, which can take up to a week. Your downloaded data is then automatically deleted after 2 weeks.

Here's the List of Data that You can Download:

  • App Store, iTunes Store, iBooks Store and Apple Music activity

  • AppleCare support history, repair requests and more

Besides data download feature, Apple is also providing an option of permanently deleting all of your data, which has been made available globally starting today. Once you initiate the data delete option, the company can take up to 7 days to approve the request.

But keep in mind: Once deleted, there is no way you can retrieve your data.
