Google "As an online discussion about iOS vs. Android grows longer, the probability of someone bringing up this link approaches 1." The argument goes that before the iPhone, Android looked like a BlackBerry clone, and after the iPhone, it suddenly turned into an iOS clone. While this argument, with its pictures, is snappy and easily digestible, it doesn't actually seem to be supported by the facts.

So, now that the US is moving towards a "first to file" rather than "first to develop" patent system, will this diminish the importance of "Prior Art"?

My understanding is, no.

My understanding is that in a "first to file" system, if there is prior art to the first to file, then NOBODY gets the patent.
