Compared with other mobile devices, iPhone does better at protecting users' privacy. If someone hasn't got your permission or passcode, he or she won't be able to get access to the data stored on your device easily. However, if you want to sell or donate your iPhone one day in future, would you feel nervous about the sensitive photos saved in your phone? Even if you perform "Erase all content and settings" on iPhone, the deleted photos might still be recoverable with the help of some professional data recovery software.
