Its become tradition and if it isn't broke then don't fix it. People like it, its the most popular flavor around the world, why would they try and change it? Like I said before apple is a relatively weak flavor, they use the juice as the base for many other juices, it needs something added to. I don't think a pure apple would taste very good, kinda bland. Even in cooking with an Apple pie you really don't taste the fruit, its mostly the spices that give it the flavor.
