Apple Official Apple statement on PRISM and privacy: "Regardless of the circumstances, our Legal team conducts an evaluation of each request and, only if appropriate, we retrieve and deliver the narrowest possible set of information to the authorities. In fact, from time to time when we see inconsistencies or inaccuracies in a request, we will refuse to fulfill it." This is basically Apple re-publishing their earlier statement in a more official manner. You either believe it, or you don't.

What I believe

What Apple is saying :
- We collect all sort of personal/private information which also interest some government agencies. Despite being an actual product manufacturer, we are also data harvesting, like Google, FB...

- We decide what to share with governments, but we don't
really obey them, because Apple, like others, considers that that information is best in the hands of Apple employees than in an inexploitable/anonymized form or, instead, freely accessible by the NSA/CIA/FBI... As a large corporation, we consider, of course, being above all governments and laws.

- Of course, the NSA may be spying the cables going to Apple servers, or some Apple employees are actually NSA agents.

But I'm just paranoïd.
