Why is iShredder not on the Apple App Store?

Did you know that Apple does not allow any secure deletion or cleaner apps to be installed directly on iOS devices? This means that popular apps such as iShredder, and many others were removed (scandalous situation!) from the App Store ten years ago and are not coming back.

However, a solution is still available for securely wiping your iOS device: iShredder iOS. Instead of installing the software directly on your iPhone or iPad, you install it on your Mac or Windows computer. Then, you connect your iOS device to your computer using a USB cable and use the iShredder iOS software to erase your device or wipe the free space.

This method is actually the most secure way to wipe an iOS device, as the sandbox technology of iOS always limits apps. So by using iShredder iOS on your computer, you can be sure that your data will be securely deleted without the risk of being intercepted by unauthorized third-party apps and, most importantly, recoverable.
