I dont really think apple cares about market share; their more geared towards profits. So if they lose market share but still manage to keep a good percentage of market share, like 10 to 15%, they will still be good because they get so much off of one Iphone. But if google continues to get more advance and apple remains stagnant, thats where you might see apple becoming like black berry or Nokia.

I think we might end up seeing os interface changes with iOS with the recent changes in management.
