Deleted Nudes Permanently Leak on Apple?!

New iOS update is resurfacing deleted files that users thought were gone.

In some cases, nude photos, after the user wiped it and sold the device.

According to the Verge, quote:

This is quite possible since it’s syncing with the Apple cloud, and may not be rewritten with 1s and 0s correctly. Data when it’s deleted is just removing the pointer to that data, and it’s not fully deleted in such a way that it can’t be recovered until overwritten. This new version of iOS apparently is bringing to light a serious issue with Apple’s data policies, especially since most users do sync with the cloud.

So if you haven’t already, consider switching to Linux and DeGoogled phone. This way you don’t have to worry about the permanent data leak issue, that comes from sync with a cloud you don’t control the data wiping policies of.
