UPDATE: New version of iShredder iOS – Securely Erase iPhone even more precise

September 09, 2020
Protectstar™ provides iPhone users with the new version of the iShredder iOS, the most used iOS app for data deletion. The latest update supports the newest iOS versions and the coming iPhone 12.

In addition to design adaptations and a more straightforward user interface, several technical improvements have been added. These relate to the performance and compatibility of current iOS versions and iPhone/iPad models.

iShredder iOS is ideal for use before selling or giving away an iPhone or iPad. All personal data and temporary cache data are irretrievably and securely deleted.

Data erasure techniques that go beyond international standards

iShredder iOS uses data shredding techniques beyond international standards set by state and military organizations for secure data deletion. iShredder's data erasing algorithms have been analyzed by government authorities and independent security organizations to ensure the app does destroy all personal data. iShredder offers all possibilities for complete protection of sensitive information and GDPR-compliant data deletion, including detailed erasure reports.

The integrated secure cleaning module with its innovative search algorithm was designed specifically to clean up useless temporary junk data, caches, log files, etc. It not only brings back valuable storage space to the mobile device, but it also ensures performance tuning, just like having a new mobile device.
