Apple now lets you download all the data it keeps about you — here's how to do it

Apple now allows you to download all the data it keeps about you, your purchases, and how you interact with Apple services. It started providing an easy way for European users to request this data earlier this year through GDPR, but now the website is available to Americans, too. So last week, I requested what Apple knows about me after 10 years of heavily using Apple products. After five days, Apple sent me an email with download links to nearly 17 GB of data including my entire iCloud drive. On the website, you can also ask Apple to correct what...

I never let myself forget that I’m really lucky in my work to be able to discover so many people and places, and to have the opportunity to bring some of their stories to new audiences. That’s what all of us, as writers, actors and comedians, set out to do – shine a light on new perspectives. So it was fascinating this year to find that one of these stories challenged my own set of stereotypes about classical music. Over the past few months I have been enthralled and captivated by the story of a man from Croydon in south...
