Apple Should Open iOS to China as Another iPhone Cut Looms, Says Rosenblatt

Apple Should Open iOS to China as Another iPhone Cut Looms, Says Rosenblatt

“It is in our view that an iPhone hardware upgrade will not bring any advantages going forward,” concludes Zhang, arguing “Apple should rather open up its OIS platform and license various versions to Chinese OEMs.”

Yes, Apple should get right on licensing it’s “OIS platform.”

I wouldn’t hold your breath on this one. Last time Apple licensed their OS it didn’t work out well and almost cost them the company. It was a stupid idea then, and it’s a stupid idea now.

Apple controls the hardware and the software (and some argue even then aren’t doing a good job with the software). Why give up what most agree to be their greatest competitive advantage? I could go on, but this isn’t happening, so why worry? Ok, one more comment, then I will quit: How would this even work? No way Apple could make an OS that just fits on generic phones. You want that, buy an Android.
