Hundreds of millions of IOS 7 phones are still in use. Where are the data breaches you claim are inevitable? They don’t exist because there are different levels of threats. There are very few NSAs out there. Just because the NSA can get past a scheme in no way means that the average or above average hacker can. I’m not relying on my opinion. My argument is based on the facts of how the world has worked to date, and to date the actions in the real world have proven the “all or nothing” argument if false. My position is based on empirical evidence. You’re an experienced software developer. Can you break into an IOS 7 phone? If not, then your claim that “because the NSA can do, anyone can do it” is demonstrably wrong.
