It's the same problem on macOS. Although, OpenSSL ships on macOS, 
it's been deprecated since at least nine major versions ago. The 
recommendation is if you want to use OpenSSL you should ship it 
with the application. One major reason being it's not ABI 
compatible between even minor versions. IIRC, OpenSSL doesn't 
ship on iOS at all.

I would love a version on macOS that uses platform provided 
TLS/SSL implementation.
