There are only 7 iPhone models including the first iPhone. There are a limited amount of carriers around the world that sells iPhones yet iOS competes respectively around the world. Can you imagine if Apple let's iOS run on many other phones like Android does? Android won't even come close in this scenario.

well ,will be a different story if you compare. one brand VS apple. I think apple its not competing, because, if apple wants to compete, will offer the IOS to any brand. that will be a fair competition.
