I guess a lot of people were plagued by the fact that the original iPhone did not securely erase user data even when the “Erase All Content and Settings” was selected. But that nightmare has now been remedied by the manufactures of the super popular phone and as many loyalists get ready to upgrade to the brand new iPhone 3G, Apple is also all set to introduce a new data erasing software for them. The iPhone 2.0 software uses a process similar to Leopard’s Secure Erase Trash feature to unlink data and overwrite it with random bits. It makes personal data impossible to recover. Of course the process also takes extra time, but since it effectively makes embarrassing bad hair day snaps and Britney Spears play lists disappear for good, I don’t think anyone will be complaining about it anytime soon.
