Once encryption is reclassified as a weapon, it could be done. Don't think for a minute, that this will protect you for a minute. Software "rendition" can be done overseas in locations where USA law does not apply. When companies have to comply with governments such as PRC, etc. with full access to customer phone, data, etc., there is no privacy. There is only the illusion of privacy. This is all legal maneuvering by Apple so it can legally not comply with USA govt requests. It would then be done elsewhere. Imagine if you wanted to sell product in PRC, you would have to comply with PRC govt requests.
