"Apples inability to address this issue quickly"
First off, the phone was running an older version of the iOS. For all we know, it is a hack against an already known and sealed bug. And no one has claimed they cracked encryption. They cracked getting into the device. (Heck, on my older iOS iPhone, you can bypass the lock by using Siri. But I'm sure that's been fixed now...).
And what issue needs to be addressed "before the next attack"? The issue of allowing the government to read our data at their will? Or the issue of having our devices insecure to hackers?
BTW, none of this would have stopped San Bernadino, so it isn't going to help 'stop' the next attack unless the government just wants to read all our data looking for terrorists. Oh, right, they're already doing that...
