Parent article: UEFI and "secure boot"

From TFA: "The UEFI 2.3.1 specification [agreement required] has a number of new features, one of which is the optional "secure boot" protocol."

Given that UEFI 2.3.1 only came out in April 2011, I doubt your 5 year old Apple hardware has UEFI 2.3.1 compliant firmware.

TPM isn't UEFI, and a TPM can only be used to trust the boot system to allow you to decrypt data. It doesn't prevent you from booting a new/different OS.
