Apple, in an effort towards transparency, is publishing the Government information requests it receives from around the World.

Apple has revealed details of requests it has received from governments across the globe to share customer data.

The US government, which made between 1,000 and 2,000 requests in the six months to 30 June, topped the list.

The firm said the US requests affected 2,000 to 3,000 accounts, adding it gave out data on zero to 1,000 accounts.

Apple said the most common "requests involve robberies and other crimes or requests from law enforcement officers searching for missing persons".Apple Publishes Statistics On Government Data Requests [bbc.co.uk]
