Apple today announced that it’s providing tools to help developers comply with the EU’s upcoming privacy regulations.
To help developers comply with the European Union’s upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Apple is providing tools that help you to fulfill data requests made by your users in the EU or around the world. These requests can include the ability to get a copy of data associated with a user, the ability to temporarily deactivate or restrict access to the data associated with a user, and the ability to delete the data associated with a user completely. Users may make requests to Apple or to developers directly.
Apple says developers can let users manage data that’s associated with their app and stored in iCloud by using native APIs and Web APIs. If a users has temporarily deactivated their Apple ID, no additional data can be stored iCloud and the CloudKit API will return errors that developers need to handle.
A restrict API provided by CloudKit Web Services will let apps temporarily restrict a specific CloudKit container.
