Google has tiny market share for their phones, and they're probably afraid to increase it lest they attract even more antitrust scrutiny. Google also routinely kills products that don't get sufficient market share, and even some that do.

So I don't believe Google-branded Android phones are here to stay for the long haul, and the lack of security updates for all the rest is a dealbreaker. The only solution is to grit your teeth and take a wheelbarrow full of cash to the nearest Apple store.
