Have you thought about making a digital estate plan? For example, what will happen with your Facebook after you pass away? What about your gmail? What about all of the photos you have stored on your iCloud? There are ways to include these types of decisions in your estate planning documents.

Apple requires a court order for a person to have access to a deceased’s Apple accounts. This court order must specify the name and Apple ID of the deceased, the name of the next of kin, that the decedent was the user of all accounts associated with the Apple ID, that the requestor is the decedent’s legal personal representative, and a judgment signed by the court.
