It's a bit more subtle than that:
o Apple deprecated its OpenSSL shared libraries a while back (with OS X 10.7). That's because OpenSSL doesn't offer release-to-release binary compatibility, so we can't update the shared libraries to the latest OpenSSL without breaking all the existing clients.
o At the same time we marked the OpenSSL headers in the OS X SDK as deprecated so you'd get deprecation warnings if you build with a deployment target of 10.7 or later.
o With the latest OS X SDK we've removed the headers entirely, making it much harder to use the long-since-deprecated shared libraries.
o We recommend that developers who need OpenSSL build their own copy of it and include that copy in their app. Alternatively you can use native OS X APIs, like Secure Transport.
