Surely that is the job of the NSA, not Apple?
It would be the criminal offense of unlawful interception if they did it
in the UK.
Not that UK law is much good, but "they" do need a warrant to look at
content for that sort of purpose. Except sometimes one warrant can cover
a hell of a lot of content... but not that.
And Apple couldn't get such a warrant anyway, it could only be issued to
Police or similar.
