Reap what you sow
When you can't trust the government, the only thing to do is treat them like any other criminal wanting to invade your privacy. That's why I applaud Apple's stand, and their further movement toward making it impossible for them to even be capable of doing what the FBI is asking in the future by preventing DFU mode software updates. I hope they also make it so the end user controls the encryption key for ALL iCloud data, not just the more sensitive stuff like passwords and health records as currently.
If Apple makes themselves completely helpless to aid the government in searching your phone or iCloud data even in the presence of a valid court order this fight will be forced out in the open. No more false cloak of secrecy in the name of "national security" as with PRISM. Once destroyed, trust can never be regained.
If the end result of this fight is that the government forces a backdoor for themselves via a law that US tech companies have no choice but to comply with, I sure hope Apple does it only for iPhones sold in the US. The US would have a hard time explaining to the rest of the world why they need a backdoor for phones sold in the UK or China and not expect backdoors left for those countries as well - and US tech companies would rightfully talk about the smoking ruin that would make the US economy if they were forced to sell such damaged products worldwide. If they make Apple sell bugged iPhones in the US you can bet I'll be having my next one shipped from overseas! And maybe send an email to the FBI Director with a picture of me unboxing my non-US phone with a picture of my middle finger included for good measure!
