We often give our Smartphones to the Technicians for repairing the Phone but before that we always Hide our Crucial or Private data so that, the technician could not see it. Bit in the case of Apple Store, the thing is different. We always trust the Customer Service of Apple and we Undoubtedly give our Apple device to the Staff at Apple Store to repair it and mostly we have to tell the Password of the Phone to them if they need it. Most important thing is, there is no App lock available for ios as for Android. So easily anyone can See your Private Data.
