Apple Details Government Requests for Data

Posted: Updated:

Apple says it received between 4,000 and 5,000 requests from U.S. law enforcement for customer data between Dec. 1, 2012 and May 31.
 
The company, like some other businesses, had asked the U.S government to be able to share how many requests it received related to national security and how it handled them.
 
Apple Inc. said that between 9,000 and 10,000 accounts or devices were specified in those requests, which came from federal, state and local authorities and included both criminal investigations and national security matters.
 
The company also made clear how much access the government has.
 
Apple says in a statement on its website that "We do not provide any government agency with direct access to our servers, and any government agency requesting customer content must get a court order."   (AP)
