there's nothing off-the-shelf about recent iPhone internals...A11 and above chips are quite custom and they built the GPU from the ground-up

Bit of the pot calling the kettle black here, eh Tim? That dude takes in hundreds of millions, in large part due to Apple's usage of personal data.

Former Facebook security chief Alex Stamos responded to Cook on Twitter today, questioning Apple's commitment to privacy in China. "Apple needs to document how they protect data stored by a PRC-owned cloud provider," Stamos wrote. "In particular, Apple should explain under what circumstances [the Chinese state-owned company] can access iCloud backups. iMessage is the only E2E [end-to-end] encrypted app allowed by the Great Firewall; what was required to get this concession from the Ministry of State Security?"
I'm pretty sure that the concession is based on a backdoor and decryption... And I am pretty sure that any response from Apple on this is that "we follow the law in each country"... China is a big market, and profit from there will help keep the stock price high. Privacy is suddenly not so important anymore.
