Selling or trading in a used Apple Watch? The best way to protect personal data before handing over your old device is to factory reset. Following this procedure wipes the Apple Watch clean, leaving it set up with the default configuration found new in the box. Apple Watch data is largely backed up on iCloud and via the paired iPhone, so owners can transfer this information to a new watch.
Apple iCloud+ offers increased privacy while browsing with Safari on iPhone and iPad. Device owners can enable iCloud Private Relay at any time, as it comes packaged free with the purchase of iCloud storage. This means anyone with an iCloud storage subscription can easily hide their IP address and web traffic. Not only does iCloud Private Relay hide this information from your ISP and the sites you visit, but Apple can't even see your activity.
The most secure way to protect personal information on an iPhone is with a strong passcode. While Face ID and Touch ID make it convenient to access devices on a daily basis, in some situations forcing a passcode requirement improves security. Forcing passcode entry is more difficult than invoking Face ID or Touch ID against the device owner's will.
Holding an iPhone up in front of someone's face can easily unlock the device. In similar fashion, all it takes is one fingerprint to render everything accessible from the iPhone home screen.
Apple has redesigned Safari in the latest iteration of iOS. The most noticeable change since iOS 15 was moving the address/search bar to the bottom of the iPhone display. Instead of viewing a single tab, Apple has created grouped tabs controlled from the new address bar. Fortunately for fans of the classic arrangement there is an option to move the address bar back to its normal location at the top of the screen.
Most companies make it possible to permanently delete any account you may be using with their services. For example, some have deleted their Facebook page, stopped using Snapchat, or removed themselves from Instagram forever. For anyone looking to opt out of Apple's servers, there is an option to delete an existing Apple ID.
