Apple Transparency Report, The bottom line is that Cupertino wants to make it clear that it opposes Washington’s “gag order” about certain national security orders.

Here’s a snapshot of just a few of them:

Apple isn’t alone in wanting to clear its name with Internet users worldwide following its implication in the National Security Agency’s PRISM program that was unearthed to the public back in June. The iPhone maker was one of nine tech giants cited as sources by the federal organization’s secret data mining program.

Much like Yahoo and a few others, Apple reiterated that it has filed a brief with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA Court) in support of greater transparency.
