Blackberry also bought/further developed/sold QNX - an OS for cars, equipment, etc.
Maybe you missed this recently (2021): BlackBerry resisted announcing major flaw in software powering cars, hospital equipment - POLITICO

charlesn said:The conclusions about "better experience" make ZERO sense. T-Mobile has SEVENTY PERCENT better download speeds vs Verizon/ATT, plus the best upload speeds, too, AND the widest 5G availability... but somehow the companies with radically slower speeds and more limited 5G availability deliver a "better experience" -- whatever THAT means -- for audio, video and gaming?! We all realize that's a baseless, stupid conclusion, right? And, listen: I have Verizon service in NYC, so I'm no T-Mobile fanboy, but you have to call out ridiculous when you see it. As for the mythical mmWave flavor of 5G, I'll probably spot a unicorn before I see the 5G UW symbol on my 12 Pro Max. Manhattan is arguably the mmWave capital of the country right now, and I have yet to connect to it even once in 9 months of usage. 99.9% of the public should not give a rat's butt about mmWave 5G.

You can tell the version by looking at the build number.

Notice how it's always "1" place? This is the main issue, and in this regards Apple does have a monopoly (since only apple can sell IOS apps). Apple isn't denying this but also not acknowledging it because it's stupid to do so. Their statements/counterpoints about security and etc so far all point toward one narrative and for one outcome. And the outcome is to disallow side loading apps, disallow 3rd party app stores and for Apple to be the sole gatekeeper, in other words have a monopoly.
- There is 1 place where you can get IOS apps.
- There is 1 place where a developer can sell IOS apps
- There is 1 place where you can buy IOS apps.
It's their product and consumers can decide to buy it, or buy Android. Consumers have a choice.
1. Apple makes some of the IOS apps,2. Apple does not make all the IOS apps.The monopoly isn't about Apple making apple devices either, the monopoly lies in the way that you can get, sell and install the apps. There is only 1 place where you can get IOS apps.As for consumer choice, there is no consumer choice. You're confusing all "apps" vs "IOS Apps". There are many ways to get "apps" but 1 way to get IOS apps.
There is consumer choice - Android. Don't like Apple's mobile products/ecosystem/rules? Buy Android.
What do you think about Nintendo, Sony or Microsoft's gaming systems? They only allow "apps" (games generally, but not necessarily - Plex, VLC, etc.) to be sold through their App Store & mandate the same % cut. Their products, their ecosystems, their rules.
My Internet provider is Comcast. It's their product and their ecosystem, so they set the rules right? They say what I can and can't do with the service they provide in their ecosystem?
A better comparison would be with Comcast cable boxes they supply - you're not allowed to tell them what channels they will provide. You're not allowed to make them let you rent/purchase PPV from Google or Amazon (stores).
