I recently went through this with a parent passing and Apple was helpful and a specialist guided me through the process. We had to follow state procedures to get the court issue the order/permission. Each state handles digital property management in their own way. Some don't even offer it in a Will. Also there is no probate when there is a surviving spouse in community property states so there's no legal documents associated with passing digital property.
Good on Apple for protecting property and privacy.

While the Internet has a virtually infinite memory, its users sure don't exploit it.
Why wouldn’t Apple want to pay its fair share?
Wasn't so long ago that a certain CEO was mocked here for saying this,“I don’t think it is Silicon Valley’s decision to make about whether encryption is the right thing to do. I understand Tim Cook’s decision, but I don’t think it’s his decision to make”… I personally think that this is an issue that should be decided by the American people and Congress, not by companies,”
Now that it is Apple's legal position, everyone is on-board. I'm digging on the irony.
