Since when did Apple ever have to "Open" its phone to the outside world. It has become the worlds largest company by deliberately staying closed. Read my lips. Controlled and closed.
Proprietary means what it says and expecting to have anything "your" way on a proprietary device is ludicrous.
That's why folks DON'T buy Apple in the first place. That's why Android and more open devices exist.
That's also why Jailbreaking occurs.
I think I may be preaching to the choir, though. Please let me know.
