Would You Want an iPhone Without Apple?
iOS frustrates many users due to its many restrictions on app developers. In the beginning, Apple made the best apps for the iPhone and this didn't matter. Now third-party developers create amazing software that can't reach its full potential due to Apple's walled garden. What if Apple stayed out of the iPhone altogether and relied on third-party developers for the core software? Would that turn into a disaster, the best thing to ever happen to the platform, or something in between?
