Apple launched a new privacy website on Wednesday that makes it easier to download a full copy of everything you've stored on the company's servers. You can also delete everything in case you want to move your data from Apple to another company.
CNBC has covered how to do this before, but you used to have to send a request saying you wanted to download your data. Apple's new website makes it even easier. It was originally available in Europe to comply with the EU's new GDPR privacy law, but now it's available in the U.S. You can get a copy of your app usage and activity, your Apple Store (both retail and online) activity, iCloud bookmarks, iCloud Calendars, Notes, a complete copy of your iCloud Drive, iCloud Mail, iCloud Photos and more.
First, go to Apple's new privacy website, privacy.apple.com. This is where you'll choose exactly what you want to download. You can select certain things that might be important, like your App Store activity or all the notes you've stored in iCloud. If there are items you don't use, then you don't have to check them.
At the bottom of the page you'll see a list of files that might be large, like your entire iCloud photo library. My iCloud Photos library is huge and, since I'm not planning to delete or leave Apple services, I didn't download a copy of this.
Once you've selected what you want to download a copy of, hit continue on the bottom of the page.
Next, you'll select a maximum file size. I suggest just choosing the largest. It'll take the longest time to download, but then everything is at least in a single folder, instead of multiple files. Then, select "Complete Request."
Next, Apple will send you an email confirming that it's preparing your data for download. Apple warns that it might take up to seven days to get a copy of your data. Some of it will be in spreadsheet form, like the apps you've purchased. If you've chosen a hard copy of your data, like photos, then you'll have a copy of all of them too.
Finally, you can choose to delete everything if you want to.
Note: If you delete your account, you won't be able to access any iTunes purchases, including books, apps, movies or music. You also won't receive iMessage or FaceTime chats. Your iCloud email will also stop working.
