"Almost Impossible" can be made very precise. Indeed, modern cryptography is based on the understanding that certain algorithms are "almost impossible" to reverse. Cryptographers prove theorems with wording like "indistinguishable from random by any polynomial time algorithm" when they mean almost impossible. So, Apple may be quite correct in their statement.

My take on this is that Apple likely has received legal orders it can not disclose, and implementing real, strong security to protect user's data.
