Apple’s Transparency Report Shows Government Pressure
Apple has released its “transparency report” for the second half of 2015 revealing a general rease in the number of requests for information from governmentencies – but the company says it remains steadfastly protective of its customers.
“When we receive information requests we require that it be accompanied by the appropriate legal documents such as a subpoena or search warrant” the report said.
“Apple has never worked with any governmentency from any country to create a ‘backdoor’ in any of our products or services. We have also never allowed any government access to our servers. And we never will.”
Apple does not always hand over data to the authorities as the case of the FBI demand in the San Bernadino killing case shows. Information on the San Bernardino iPhone is luded in the report.
