    I remembered an article suggesting that Apple may be looking at truly making iCloud a private service. (SpiderOak and others have proved it can be done. Day One claims to be looking into it.) Do you think we are going to ever see this for iCloud Drive in general?

    These articles seem to back statements made Zdziarski, who now works *for* Apple, where he said that it was possible for iCloud to support end-to-end encryption without compromising features.

    The Forbes article points how sensitive information is saved to iCloud in a decryptable manner. It turns out that the same is true for backups, which undermines the end-to-end encryption of Messages.

    Apple Can Still Read Your End-to-End Encrypted iMessages

    It seems to me that Apple is aware if these issues and isn't happy with it. I think that's evident in how they encrypt Photos, which was covered by iMore:

    So what do you think? Will we see more thing gradually being more deeply encrypted? Will we get the option to choose our iCloud backup encryption key, or otherwise be able to protect it (2FA)? Or, since the pressure is off at the moment, is this less of a priority?

    To answer the thread question, I'd say "probably"...
