The bulk of iPhone users neither know about, nor care about the fact that they have a phone that does not have an option for Micro-SD.
The bulk of Android users neither know nor care about the fact that they do have that option.
Which is why Nokia are releasing a phone that also doesn't have an option for Micro-SD. And 99% of the people shopping for a new phone won't pay any attention to that at all.
All the noise about this is, yet again, purely in the realms of geekdom where the very notion of releasing a product which doesn't have every possible option is apparently deemed foolish. The rest of society not only doesn't care, but is usually quite happy in the simplicity that reducing options brings.
