Manage an iCloud space after death?

How to recover iCloud online storage space?

The loss of a loved one is difficult. Not only do you have to deal with your own grief, but also with the steps involved in a death.

On your long list, add the closing of all accounts. Whether they are banking, medical, energy, they are digital.

Thus, you need to use the deceased's logins and passwords in order to manage his or her digital possessions with all that this entails: such as simply accessing the loved one's data in order to keep some of it as a memory, before proceeding to the definitive closure of the accounts.

Legapass has therefore created a digital legacy service for descendants.

By contacting LegapassYou will be able to access the data in the deceased's Apple account, as the iCloud storage space is an Apple service.

The procedure for downloading content from iCloud applications is not exhaustive, it is of course dependent on the applications in the Apple account, which differs from person to person.

 

How to delete an iCloud account?

You have to request the deletion of the Apple account, since as mentioned above, iCloud is an Apple service and you can't do anything different.

You will need your own Apple ID, as well as the Apple ID of the deceased and all documents related to the death to ensure that you are a beneficiary.

You can therefore make the request by clicking directly here to access the page about the digital legacy.

If you do not have the deceased's login details, but still have his or her email address, you can go to the following address iforgot.apple.com to check if there is an Apple account linked to it.

If you do not have an Apple ID, you will need to create one to close your loved one's Apple account.
