Apple plans to give its customers a bit more control over their data. In order to comply with the pending General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) going into effect in Europe, Apple is allowing customers in the European Union to download all their data. Such data includes files and information synced to iCloud, as well as activity on devices, Apple Music, AppleCare, the App Store, and other Apple services. Apple’s new Data and Privacy web site also makes it easy for people to edit the data Apple stores, as well as delete it entirely. Apple warned that preparing the data download may take several days. While this tool is reaching European citizens first, Apple intends to make it available globally later this year.
