Apple tweaks format for reporting national security requests

Apple Inc. adopted a format similar to other tech giants for its reports on U.S. national security requests for user data, Reuters reported Dec. 20.

The iPhone maker, which previously used to combine the number of National Security Letters and requests under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA, will now report them separately.

For the first half of 2018, Apple reportedly received zero to 499 National Security Letters related to 1,000 to 1,499 users. Apple did not mention the number of FISA requests received during the first half because of the change in format. The company plans to report those numbers after Dec. 31.

Moreover, the tech giant reported 4,177 "account requests" from the government related to 40,641 users.
