        I’m more worried that Apple had data to give up at all, what with them talking big game about not doing that.

        With an Android phone I can use a deGoogled ROM and have complete knowledge and control over all data going in or out and where it’s coming from. With an iPhone, I just have to trust that Apple has my best interests at heart and takes as many steps as they are legally allowed to to prevent things like this happening. Their entire business model is dependent on people believing that that is the case, hence the high profile FBI snafu a few years back. We have just received irrefutable proof that this is not true.
