Microsoft should have been there to take the lead. The android ecosystem just doesn't work well -- too many disparate devices, too much choice. People like uniformity and simplicity. They weren't.
They weren't positioned to and had no real hope of being.
Not sure how MS capitalizes on that.
Then ios5 wiped out the maps application off your phone.
No, that was 6. And WP did not have something better at this point.
Then the iphone5 came out which didn't work with any of your existing power cables and docks.
Works fine with the cable that comes with it though. Not a misstep, its a transition. Not something significant enough for MS to make much headway, as it's not like WP7/8 and Win8 has a big hardware ecosystem with consistent accessories to leverage.
The high end market where you'd get an iphone as it just worked well now had stumbling blocks. It wasn't an obvious choice any more.
1 minor one going by what you've listed.
Then apple's share price fell.
What the hell does that have to do with anything? Your whole premise makes no sense.
