The same can be said of MacOS, which I tried using for the first time in many years recently after getting one of the new MBPs (I’ve been using Windows 10, iOS, Android and Chrome OS machines).
MacOS feels totally antiquated. Slow and heavy, overstuffed with mixed metaphors and clashing UX paradigms.
One hopes this doesn’t happen to iOS.
An equally good question.
There are definitely trade-offs to be considered in terms of balancing things between a fully open, multi-OEM ecosystem vs working with a strong, committed partner who has a strong brand name and industry leading distribution.
I’ll counter with a couple of different quotes:
We tend to overestimate the effect of a technology in the short run and underestimate the effect in the long run.

The future is already here — it’s just not evenly distributed.
Facebook now renders panoramas shot on the iPhone as 360 photos (along the horizontal plane, not spherical). Which has led to a noticeable uptick in 360 photos in my News Feed.
But, yes, the general state of creation apps for this is poor.
