In addition to this, the NYPD's stated reason for pushing the iPhone 5s is that it makes iPhone theft a thing of the past, which it clearly, demonstrably does. The link you posted saying NYPD is after the fingerprints is clearly, demonstrably false. Now, I'm sure you can find folks that say something different, but I can also show you pictures of Obama shaking hands with space aliens - you can find anything you like, but it doesn't make it true.
Finally, Apple (and Google) outright deny sharing data with the NSA.
You can continue to believe that they are sharing if you like, but stating that they have admitted they are sharing is incorrect.
