|Apple launches new privacy portal due to GDPR|

Apple has today launched its new Data and Privacy website, allowing Apple users to download everything that Apple personally associates with your account, from Apple ID info, App Store activity, AppleCare history to data stored in iCloud like photos and documents. This is currently only available for European Union accounts, to comply with GDPR, and will roll out worldwide in the coming months.
There are also simple shortcuts to updating your info, temporarily deactivating your account and options to permanently delete it.
It's almost like all the people whining about suddenly having to care about their users' personal data were wrong, and the GDPR is actually doing what it's supposed to do: force accountability onto data holders.
