Why do we always hear about Apple? Because they make tons of money. Instead of looking at them as a mobile OS company (as Apple against the rest of the world), look at them as a handset company against other handset companies. Very few enter a store and request an Android OS. They want a Samsung or an LG. I bet 85% have no idea or care what OS runs their phone. If Android had Siri and would auto post to my other devices I wouldn't care. (Wait now Apple pay is great too.) what counts is how does the Apple handset division fair against the handset division of any other company in the world. There isn't a division that wouldn't trade places with Apple in a heartbeat. I think Samsung is number one in units, yet they are struggling and Apple is flying, so what's more important, especially where investment is concerned? When Nok ruled the world they only had 38 percent unit share, not dollar share, and nobody will ever reach that again. (BTW are there any stats as to what percent of the high end market Apple owns.)
