Yet carriers seem to love Android . . .    
What Maps? Who?   Nokia, you sorta mattered like 7 years ago. Beating your chest about your nearly-unknown mapping service - and how it does or doesn't function on the best consumer mobile operating system on the planet - won't push you any further out of irrelevance.    Additionally, mentioning your name *with* Apple in the same breath, *won't* give you even 1/1000th of Apple's cachet or star-power. Sorry.
Ill-will from the tech community? Apple can barely meet demand for their products. As far as the "tech community" goes, I'm not sure what this term is supposed to reference. Developers are making money and users want Apple gear. At any rate, Apple doesn't seem to be suffering from any alleged "ill-will" from areas of the market or the industry that actually matter.
Those who care about their IP, and thus the integrity of their product, are entitled to pursue claims relating to it. This is an Apple attitude and it's served them quite well.
WiFi is not a concern from a phone bill perspective. Cellular data *is* a concern. This is almost 2014 and at least in Canada, carriers are still pushing sub-gigabyte plans at us, while *also* pushing devices at us that are practically made for high-data usage.
More power to Apple. 1) They can afford it, and 2) it has zero effect on consumer perception - from a sales and popularity perspective. No one's going to cross off Apple gear from their Boxing Week list because they've issued briefs against some foreign company. 3) Litigiousness is in Apple's DNA. Which is the right attitude on their part, and which has buttressed their concern for the integrity of their product, design, and technologies since the first day of Apple as...
Apple already dApple, for instance, dominates the US market. THE platinum market. Where the MONEY is to be made. And China is spread wide open for them.I think Apple is content to let Google play as much as they like in the Third World, which is Google's playground.
  It's in need of one. Badly.  Unless Apple just wants it to be an iPhoto on steroids. Which is fine, because those who have been on the fence about moving to Lightroom can then do so without hesitation.
A substantial amount of research, and THIS is the best they could do? And it only affects Mac models prior to 2008? LOL Further proof that Apple is by far the safest relevant (sorry, desktop Linux) platform for the average user to be on.
