This is a car forum right? Not a weird gadget forum where people defend their devices like sports teams?
Lets add some perspective, the worlds best selling car, does not work correctly with the worlds best selling phone.
The phone sells millions per week, and the car sells tens of thousands per month. From a business perspective it is far more likely that a Ford Focus owner will have an iPhone then an iPhone owner will have a Ford Focus. That tends to put the burden on Ford to make this work, and interestingly they have indicated that they will do just that.
As for Apple, they have always pushed and manipulated standards. We could argue about their reasons, but honestly I haven't never spoken to any of the management at Apple, nor read very many interviews about this topic, how do we know anything about their motivations?
Webkit is the most popular layout engine on the internet, it is heavily contributed to and originally (kinda) developed by Apple, then open-sourced.
Lets stick to talking about cars.
