As technology companies pull out or consider their presence in Hong Kong due to new legislation from the Chinese government, Apple has said it is "assessing" the impact of the new law.

However, unlike other companies, it has not yet suspended data requests from Chinese authorities.

The new law, officially called the "Law of the People's Republic of China on Safeguarding National Security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region," criminalises any act of secession, subversion, terrorism, or collusion with foreign forces.
