Part of the problem is how large teams work. You have to break the problem down into smaller pieces, so small that you can hire 40+ developers, and that means everyone writes their own sort function, everyone writes their boilerplate code to interface with other modules, layers upon layers upon layers of interoperability. Of course this affects battery life, too, when the individual modules are doing little more than communicating with other modules.
This is especially true for C++, which doesn't support shared libraries, so you have to "glue" the same code into each module over and over and over. Probably 50+ megabytes of core libraries duplicated in every file. There's a way to share, but it's more difficult, it's easier to duplicate. You'll end up with 80% of your executable being either a duplicate, or boilerplate.
We just haven't figured out how to break down big problems to team members without introducing bloat. It's a race to the release type of world, when everything had to be finished yesterday, and the last thing managers care about is how many gigabytes the downloadable installer is.
Therefore, you can't binary delta patch since all contents are modified after the first changed byte. The only way to update a modified file is to download the whole thing.
Microsoft doesn't do this, so Windows allows binary delta patching with much smaller update sizes.
