After the user’s death, Apple will let the users do the iCloud data

After death, Apple’s Digital Legacy system allows iPhone users to send one or more contacts to access and retrieve data in iCloud. Earlier this year, the program was first announced at Apple’s WWDC event.

With the latest iOS update, Apple users can design up to five people as ‘Legacy Contacts’ on devices such as iPhones, iPads and Macs. These ‘Legacy Contacts’ after providing proof of death and access key features will automatically get access to the data stored on iCloud.

“If your selected contacts provide proof of death to Apple and they have the required key, they will automatically gain access to an account data and the activation lock will be removed from all your devices,” according to the page. Internet iCloud Terms of Apple. It is therefore the user’s responsibility to keep their Digital Legacy contacts up to date, the company further stated.

How Apple users can set up a contact can be Go to Settings> [your name] > Password & Security on your iPhone. Mac users can go to Settings Favorites> Apple ID> Password & Security. Find a Legacy Contact here and follow the instructions to add a Legacy Contact. If you have already used Family Sharing, you can select a family member from the list.
