Apple Details Government Information Requests in New Report
Stating they believe that customers have a right to understand how their personal information is handled, Apple admitted Tuesday that it is "our responsibility to provide them with the best privacy protections available."
To that end, Apple has prepared a lengthy report on the requests it receives from governments seeking information about individual users or devices "in the interest of transparency" for Apple customers around the world.
"We have no interest in amassing personal information about our customers," Apple emphatically states. "We protect personal conversations by providing end-to-end encryption over iMessage and FaceTime. We do not store location data, Maps searches, or Siri requests in any identifiable form."
If you're looking for juicy details, however, there aren't many contained in the document. While Apple does divulge the nations of origin for most requests, the U.S. government precludes Apple from dishing out too many particulars when it comes to accounts or information requested that is pertinent to national security.
