1) "Phone users who use the Apple IOS operating system have come across a major setback in that they cannot connect their phone to their Polestar 2 electric sedan as the software only supports Android Automotive".
Also, the car doesn't support Android Automotive, it's built on it. And it doesn't support Android AUTO at all, either (which seems to be what they're implying).

Security issue perhaps. No one wants a back door into the OS - iOS or AA. Volvo won’t even open their diagnostics port to non VIDA applications or OBD hardware. Can you imagine the mess a home hacker could make trying to jailbreak their car, much less someone with a more sinister agenda? If only they would allow “A Better Route Planner” into their App Store, but so far, no dice.
As a "home hacker" who has modified the coding in previous vehicles, it's not as bad or scary as you think.
