Account Preservation Requests

Account Preservation requests are based on account identifiers such as an Apple ID or email address. Account Preservation requests ask Apple to preserve a one-time copy of customer account data - for example, law enforcement investigations where an account may have been used unlawfully, and Apple is requested to preserve account data while a valid legal request for the data is obtained. Apple began reporting on Account Preservation requests in Transparency Report Period July 1 - December 31, 2016.
