Russian company can recover deleted iCloud notes

A Russian software company called ElcomSoft claimed in a blog that iCloud notes marked as deleted are being stored on Apple’s servers well past the advertised 30-day period they are kept in the “Recently Deleted” folder.

ElcomSoft said it used an updated version of its Phone Breaker tool, version 6.5, to recover dozens of iCloud notes deleted more than a month ago. ElcomSoft said many of the notes were deleted a few weeks past the 30-day window, but in some cases, it was allegedly able to extract notes deleted “several months ago.”

They based their software on a hunch that Apple actually holds onto user information way longer than they said they do. Apple says that they will hold onto your personal iCloud data for 30 days before deleting it but ElcomSoft shows that they can still recover your iCloud info even months later. In fact, ElcomSoft CEO Vladimir Katalov said the oldest note it was able to retrieve was deleted around five years ago:

“We did it again,” says Vladimir Katalov, ElcomSoft CEO. “After recovering deleted photos and Safari browsing history from iCloud, we now add the ability to recover deleted notes from the same source regardless of how much time has passed after the deletion. The oldest record we’ve been able to pull was deleted back in 2012.”

Nevertheless, ElcomSoft said that its ability to extract iCloud notes deleted more than 30 days ago is “not necessarily” guaranteed. “While some of our test accounts did indeed contain deleted notes going all the way back to 2015, some other accounts contained much less than that,” it explained.
