How to set up iCloud Data Recovery Service | #ios | #apple | #iossecurity


Apple is making it easier for its users to recover their data from a lost or stolen iPhone.

With iOS 15, Apple has added a new feature called iCloud Data Recovery Services that are designed to make people’s life easier with backup data in case they’ve lost their iPhone or iCloud and want to retrieve their backup data.

If you own an Apple product, you know how complicated it is to retrieve a lost password or access to iCloud especially if you have no other Apple device linked to the account for the authentication process.

The new iCloud Data Recovery Services are set to make the entire process simpler, smoother and less painful for users. Wondering how? Here’s our complete guide on it.

iCloud Data Recovery Services: Recovery methods
The service introduces two ways to recover data. But the first thing you need to do is enable the iCloud backups.

Method 1: Set an iCloud Recover contact
With this recovery method, users need to add emergency contacts who are at least 13 years old and own a device that runs the latest versions of Apple operating systems.

To recover data using this method, users will need to call their recovery contact and ask them to generate a code for you. Once you have the code, enter it on your device and it will allow you to instantly set a new password for your Apple account.

Method 2: Enable Account Recovery Key
This method only works when you have a second Apple device running iOS 15 linked to the same account. This will allow you to generate code on the other device when asked.

How to enable iCloud Data Recovery Service on iPhone or iPad

1.

Open Settings and tap on your Profile icon

2.

Tap Password & security

3.

Choose Account Recovery

4.

Here you can either choose one of the two recovery methods or both.


If you are looking to enable iCloud Data Recovery Service on MacBook, the first thing you’ll have to do is wait for macOS Monterey. Once and when it happens, install the update and head to System Preference -> Apple ID -> Password & Security -> Account Recovery

Also, note that both Account Recovery and two-factor authentication do not play along well. So, it is advisable not to keep both enabled at the same time.
