Is Apple Sharing Your iMessage Information With Police?

Sam Biddle at The Intercept reported last week that Apple has information about the phone numbers you contact—as well as dates and times, and even your IP address—which could be used to identify someone’s location. That seemingly contradicts Apple’s 2013 claim that they “do not store data related to customers’ location.”
