Apple backs down from barring widow her dead husband's passwords

So Apple supports strong encryption and opposes backdoors. Yet it can provide the password for your iPad after you die? Am I misunderstanding something here ?

Quite apart from the issue of whether the deceased actually wants the next-of-kin to have access to their personal device. Who knows what they stored on there.
