Then why are they developing apps for iOS? If you are correct then they don't need the Apple ecosystem and, in fact, would be better off without it since then they would not have to give up 30% of their profit.
Another application that I haven't seen mentioned, but which has extensive functionality in numerous areas beyond the obvious, is Path Finder.
As well as replacing Finder, it handles searching, application launching and switching, compressing and uncompressing, screen capture, text files and terminal emulation, all from one menu.
You really can't cite a single historical event as if it were definite evidence of future events, no matter how much it may appear, by your limited analysis, to parallel the current situation. It's just lazy thinking. And in terms of Android overwhelming Apple, you only need to check reference  in your table to determine the extent of the fronts on which that is occurring.
OK. 1. If the current common uses are hardware limited, then that is a trivially obvious observation. 2. Follows from (1). 3. An assertion, and the one that was originally disputed based on the historical evidence that hardware advances have always driven new applications and uses. We have seen this continuously even in the evolution of the smartphone. Why would it mysteriously stop now? This appears to be simply imagination failure on your part. 4. Yes - we know...
Quite recently you dodged the question (from myself and others) on whether you really needed an example that hardware development drives software development, since you seemed to be disputing that. Perhaps you could summarize your primary point(s), as opposed to your interest, because having read this thread in its entirety, I cannot fathom what you are currently trying to argue.
If your original comment seems to be being ignored, it's because your subsequent comments demand more attention. Either you are really bad at communicating your points or (as I suspect), you are actually quite good at communicating but your arguments are flawed, so you are spending way too much time trying to move the goalposts when that is pointed out.
