Over time I saw a few examples of the attitude "We are Apple, these are our machines, there are our algorithms, we are smart, we do things right for you." but considering their track of records exposed by the problems routinely discovered by who reverse engineers their product, I wonder how useful that attitude really is.

Both apples security and privacy I'd say are industry leading...

Sure, you might still say it isn't good enough, but I personally trust them to make the right choices for me, even if they don't inform me exactly what those choices were and what tradeoffs were made.

Their privacy is industry leading. Google is probably a little ahead on security. (E.g. Safari tended to get hacked much more easily than Chrome)

Yes, but iOS is miles ahead of Android when it comes to difficulty of one app getting root or stealing data from another.
