Set up legacy contacts in iOS 15

I hate to tell you, but one day you will die. And when that happens, you may want your loved ones to have access to all the data you have stored on your Apple account.

That may seem like a minor consideration in the bigger scheme of things, but items like photos, messages, and notes can have some value — real or sentimental — to the people you leave behind. Fortunately, a feature added in iOS 15 makes it easy to set up old contacts who can access your Apple account after you pass.
