I think you are exactly correct. C++ is not the go-to language for writing web pages, web servers, or phone apps. Apple had an investment in Object Pascal, and then Swift, to create a typical Apple lock-in. Google chose Java for Android, probably to take advantage of the many programmers who knew Java and the Spring graphics library, but found C++ difficult.

C++ is always going to be the language for implementing embedded things, for writing operating systems, compilers and databases, and for any place performance is critical.
