Following Facebook and Microsoft

Apple is the latest tech firm to publish details of data requests from the US authorities.

The firm said it received requests for information linked to between 9,000 and 10,000 accounts or devices between December and the end of May.

It said the demands included "national security matters" among other information. Microsoft and Facebook published similar numbers last week.

But Google and Twitter have said that such disclosures are not helpful.
