After a denial from the FBI, Apple finally confirmed in a statement to AllThingsD that it did not give any UDIDs to the FBI, nor did the FBI request the information from Apple. Apple spokesperson Natalie Kerris also confirmed iOS 6 would introduce a new set of APIs that both replace and ban UDIDs:

“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,” said Apple spokesperson, Natalie Kerris.
