Earlier this week the AntiSec hacking group claimed (http://macte.ch/FPecX) it had obtained over 12 million of unique identifiers for Apple devices from an FBI laptop. The FBI denied this; now Apple has issued a statement saying it did not provide any UDIDs to the FBI.
Natalie Kerris told "AllThingsD" (http://macte.ch/QWkhQ) that "the FBI has not requested this information from Apple, nor have we provided it to the FBI or any organization. Additionally, with iOS 6 we introduced a new set of APIs meant to replace the use of the UDID and will soon be banning the use of UDID."
