    I guess he wasn't around in the 90s? This is a terrible idea. This clown even says Apple could charge next to nothing for it as the money is in "services" and "subscriptions". If that's the case why would Apple need to license their operating system? They can just build apps for "services" on other platforms like they did with Apple Music on Android. The day Apple licenses iOS is the day they stop making iPhones and iPads. No one will buy an iPhone if they can get a cheap clone from another OEM.

    What an idiot!

    Carnegie Mellon should put their research papers for free on the Internet, billions of people would want to download them.

    They should also drop the student fees, so lots of people would be able to enrol and not have a stupid diploma and huge debt at the end.

    Also, why doesn't CM let the knowledge flow? Millions even billions of Indians and other people should be able to download course materials off their site for free and just serve ads.

    Apple makes their $$$ from hardware, which they can sell at dear prices because it has great software. Licensing their software completely blows up their entire business model.

    I can't remember the last time I paid Apple for a software upgrade. They hurt me everytime I upgrade the hardware, but happily give me the software to soften the blow :D

    Maybe he was thinking of Microsoft when he wrote that article? prior to Windows 10

    I like the soften the blow.

    What Apple gives u at a hard price, they make up for in software as cheap as chips...

    Inter-organisation co-operation is not necessarily a bad thing. Microsoft dealing with Xiaomi was probably a smart move, and so on.

    For some of Apple's software products (not iOS alone), a more open approach – and a broader, less elite customer base – certainly could help to loosen the Apple software ecosystem. In a positive way.

    Without the click-bait subject line, I would not have found this news. Thanks @Rogifan

    Do you guys even realize that iOS is based in free open source code? When Jobs came back he dumped Mac OS and built OS X from a free BSD source code base and used to regularly contribute to the open source community.
    iOS is based on the same code. And frankky, the reason it is buggy, its updates suck and is poorly optimized is because of its CLOSED source code. Apple made the descision tha iOS would be closed source for security reasons, yet other BSD's remain more secure than iOS and OS X.
    Apple licensing iOS would get more programmers scanning and testing the code. Not as good as open source, but It would benefit users immensely.

    great. that means dual booting will become even worse since they broke things on purpose backhandedly through Boot Camp. this company is going backwards.

    This is an iOS topic. That aside for a moment, what exactly was broken by Apple?
