We, the Android users, have been enjoying the same stacked RAW files for 5 years now. Haha

GCAM dngs are way better than these trash ProRaw junk files, at least the ones I've checked already.

Reading the Google AI Blog analytical long forms on Pixels and the recent Halide long form on the iPhone 12 Pro Max, it appears that Apple is doing something like Pixel Visual Core, i.e. algorithmically moving the sensor during the HDR process to overwrite noise more effectively - it's hardware tweaking not available via GCam with other Android devices. I use Gcam(s) but have never seen output comparisons with full Pixel cameras, and Apple would be in the mix now. (I was surprised to see a "Pixel 5" which is more like a Pixel 4.1 this year, with Mark Levoy and much of the Pixel dev team moving on a few months ago, it looks like a last hurrah - would expect more hardware changes in the next edition.)
