    Your “incorrect” switches for selection image looks like lots of Apple’s UI, across many of their built-in apps. It’s not incorrect at all.

    The guidelines you provided do not prove your case that switches and checkboxes can be used interchangeably.

    iOS has switches. macOS has checkboxes. Platforms have conventions.

    You're looking at it wrong. There is no "better interface pattern," it's a matter of context and user expectations.

    You are recommending people use checkboxes on iOS, but THERE IS NO CHECKBOX UI WIDGET ON iOS.

    Just because two different controls have the same function doesn't mean they can be used willy nilly.

    I agree. THERE IS NO CHECKBOX UI WIDGET ON iOS.
