Well, Chrome was based on Webkit for a while and then they forked it and as a result stopped contributing to it. For Google, Chrome is a major product (as it forces their Search engine and products). For Apple, Safari is pretty minor. Apple simply doesn't have a reason to throw so much manpower at it.

Maybe Apple will adopt Blink/Chromium in the future?

That's a dark future but pretty much. This happening would mean Firefox's engine is the only other rendering engine on earth than Blink.
