21 Jun Apple: Data on iCloud Within Police’s Reach
It was recently clarified by a security expert that customer data backed up to the iCloud can still be accessed by law enforcement. According to Jonathan Zdziarski, an Apple product specialist, the iCloud is basically just someone else’s computer.
Apple CEO Tim Cook recently reiterated that the company does not have access to data in the customer’s iPhone. However, Apple confirmed that they did turn over the contents of customer iCloud, iTunes and Game Center accounts to the police a number of instances in the past.
Statistics also showed that the company was inclined to work alongside authorities in the United States, where it discloses information 81% of the time. It also cooperated 30% of the time in Asia and 53% in Europe, the Middle East, India and Africa.
