Apple ID is a good stuff, you can enjoy a variety of services to apple through it, but these services before the apples are too scattered, sometimes you don't even know where to find you want to backup data, if there can be a polymerization page, experience is not good will? That's what apple is thinking, so they plan to launch a new version of Apple ID, where you can manage all Apple ID related services.
Reporting from Bloomberg, they said Apple will soon launch a new website, allowing users to download all copies of data stored through Apple ID, and you can also manage Apple ID on this website. Specifically, contacts, photos, music lists, calendar information, to-do lists and other data can be downloaded and managed in this webpage. In the past, you had to search for information that you want to manage in iCloud pages.
In addition to downloading all data related to Apple ID, Apple will also allow users to change personal information on the website, or even ban or permanently cancel their own Apple ID. And now, if users don't connect directly with the official apple, they can't download data or delete their accounts.
Why does Apple launch such a website? The reason is the European Union launched the "Universal Data Protection Ordinance", for the EU within the EU has carried out business enterprises have launched a series of user data and privacy protection measures and related services, the regulations will take effect in May 25th, so apple in early May will be launched in Europe in the new ", and extended to other countries in the the day after.
But many American friends for the news raised their concerns, they are afraid of all services are gathered in a web page, once it has been hacked, then the user data will be "all".
It is worth mentioning that, in today's push iOS 11.3, Apple has joined the privacy improvement function. When you first open every apple application, the screen will pop up the window to tell you what data Apple collected, and why we need to collect these data.
