And Apple is scanning iCloud photos designated for backup that they can currently already decrypt.

For now. This whole system doesn't make much sense unless they plan to finally enable E2EE iCloud.

Yes, and on-device CSAM scanning + E2EE iCloud is a strictly more private and mass-surveillance robust system than the status quo.
