I choose OpenSSL because it's a well respected, highly trusted, and it is available everywhere. I despise the license and the API. Sadly, those are not primary concerns when dealing with Cryptograpy libraries.
Well, Apple abandoned it years ago because it was difficult to upgrade without breaking applications that are using it. There are also very few core developers working on it, as I understand it.
Other companies/organizations have abandoned it as well in favor of other implementations like libressl due to various reasons.
Perhaps, if possible, a common API on top of whatever is the "native" cryptographic library on each supported platform.
