You can get the iPhone from one producer – Apple. The working framework utilized in the iPhone, iOS, is an exclusive Apple item. You can’t simply get your own duplicate of iOS and placed it on telephones and sell it.
Android telephones, then again, utilize a working framework that is open-source. Android is simply one more distro of Linux, in spite of the fact that it runs some freely evolved programming on top of the Linux bit instead of the GNU userland apparatuses utilized in work area Linux.
At any rate, because of Android being founded on open-source programming, anybody can utilize it, very much like you can download many other complete Linux distros and do anything that you please with them. Since ARM based together frameworks with respect to a-chip (Soc’s) are modest as are capacitive LCD screens, basically any hardware manufacturing plant in Shenzhen or Tianjin can produce them, stick Android on them, and sell the most that they can. Furthermore, you don’t for even a moment need to go through straight Android. Amazon’s purported “FireOS” is a changed, rebranded Android, similarly that Linux Mint is rebranded Ubuntu (which is, thus, rebranded Debian).
Since Android is promptly accessible and can be introduced on product equipment, there is gigantic contest in that market space and Android-based telephones can be had for generally minimal expenditure. The main limit on the cost of the exclusive Apple iPhones comes from the way that there is an option as Android telephones.
For those mature enough to recollect quite a while back, it’s fundamentally history rehashing the same thing with the restrictive Apple Macintosh and DOS/Windows PC’s utilizing off-the-rack Intel x86 equipment.
