It depends on the case and the reason behind the request. Meaning, there's no way to tell what information was requested and how or in which case it was used.

Yes, Apple can provide content (emails, photos, contacts) backed-up with Apple IDs. But, in the latest report, the company didn't provide content associated with the accounts to the Indian government.

Not really. Apple gives information only on valid grounds and with a legal request. Also, the request may be fully or partially rejected if it is completely over-broad in respect to the case.
