Apple will create a special portal for law enforcement officials to legally request and receive user data from Apple, according to a letter sent to a senator and obtained by Business Insider.
In a letter to the US Senate, Apple's highest-ranking lawyer said that the company plans to take several steps to make it easier for police to obtain some of its users' data during investigations.
Police frequently subpoena user data from the big tech companies, including Google, Facebook, and Apple.
The letter is signed by Kate Adams, Apple's general counsel.
"When the portal goes live, law enforcement agents will be able to apply for authentication credentials, giving them the option to submit legal requests online," the letter continues.
Many of Apple's changes are in response to a report from the Center for Strategic and International Studies, called "Low Hanging Fruit."
