The majority of governments in the first semester of 2013 asked for information concerning Apple users. The Company published a new transparency report revealing the number and the kind of requests.
The report revealed Greek authorities sent two requests for eight devices, and were mainly aimed at tracking down stolen or lost devices.
Meanwhile, the report also showed that the British government took second place, with 127 requests as Spain followed with 102 requests.
The company stated that the requests were mostly made in an effort to solve cases of robberies and other felonies as well.
Moreover, the US government forwarded about 2,000 requests for user data on its iTunes and iCloud services since January, but did not specify quantity of requests because of US administration restrictions.
The same report included information on specific devices submitted by users, in aim to register devices as well as specific dates when devices are connected for the first time to the company’s services.
