Just my 2 cents: Apple currently offers a great user experience in terms of app quality, stability, design, etc... That's because they have a total control over what can and what can't be uploaded to their app store. They run extensive analysis over each one of the apps that are being submitted to the app store and they reserve their right to reject an app even if the slightest bug occurs. That, at the end of the day, turns into a very positive user experience.

My question is: Would it be actually good for the end user if Apple is forced to lose control over the app store?

Apple could easily continue curating and vetting quality apps. The problem is that users buy a phone, own it, and can't decide what to run on it.
