Handling of confidental data on a new MacBook Pro

Hello at all :)

I currently own a MacBook Pro from 2011, where I could upgrade the RAM and installed a 500 GB SSD. I was not been able to update the operating system to a new version since “High Sierra”. Now, however, I also no longer get security updates, so I decided to buy a new MacBook Pro M1.

I find it very unfortunate that I can’t remove the SSD at the newer MacBooks. Especially with a defect system you have to hand over your Macbook with all your confidential data to Apple. Of course, I would implement a hard disk encryption via the T2 chip, but I would not have a good feeling to hand over my MacBook including all my confidental data to Apple.

Otherwise I think the technology of the new MacBook Pro is great and I would like to stay at the Apple family. Is my fear too big or how do you see my considers?

I’m glad about your comments :)
