Apple seems to be opening up their ecosystem.

In iOS 12 you can now natively use 3rd party password managers system wide, as well as being able to define what cloud storage you want to use for any application that stores data.

For the first time, I can create Pages/Numbers/Keynote documents that default to Nextcloud for storage.
I can use Bitwarden in all my apps without having to load it manually.

You still can't change the default web browser, but anyone who knows Apple knows this is big.

The walls of the garden have come down a few inches.

I'm looking forward to watching this trend continue towards a more open ecosystem.
