This is an article about securing the boot process on various platforms. Whatever your thoughts on Apple's cloud security practices (I'm not a fan either), it gets tedious to have this brought up every time an article is in any way related to Apple and security. Boot security matters, regardless of whether your cloud backups are end-to-end encrypted or not. I find calling it "rather performative" disingenuous.

Yes, my comment is orthogonal to the topic of the article. I’m just so incredibly tired of seeing people trot out this commonplace and false Tim Cook vs the FBI narrative entirely uncritically, which is precisely what TFA does.
