The thing is people are so sick of the battleground which is Windows software they are willing to trade freedom for safety.
And the safety is temporary and ephemeral at best (see the fact that it's still possible to jailbreak the phone and exploit vulnerabilities in individual applications). Therefore, perhaps it's never in recent history been so apropos to quote the full-on Franklin quote:
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
