This is well written and reaches some very pragmatic conclusions. In fairness though, I think Apple is slowly (very slowly) catching up (see webrtc). At this point it’s inevitable that PWAs are going to become the de-facto approach to publishing one’s app. Easy to share, test, fix, update and it comes with no app store fees and other nonsense. If Apple is smart, they’ll give up on being precious about their app store ecosystem and fully embrace PWAs, or else they will lose their trillion $ company status and go back to the pre-Jobs era.
