> That's more of an ios problem

Ah, so only a problem for 40% of Signal users.

There's no technical reason that prevents Signal from doing this; they simply haven't.






Can they encrypt it properly? I'm not familiar with how iOS/Apple backup works and how it guarantees that only the user can restore it.

Signal backups on Android used to be entirely unencrypted(!), so that hasn't stopped them before.
