No. It's about the fact you have no options to install or distribute anything on iPhone besides the app store or buying a developer license and building one yourself. That's monopolistic. Android you can install apps obtained outside the Play store so Google isn't doing the same thing. Microsoft wasn't doing the same thing as Apple either on their phones.

No its not monopolistic, that's called a brand. You always have android to turn to.

Monopolistic would be that apple is the only brand available, period. That's not the case here.

The monopoly of device isn't what we are talking about. There are 2 real options. The monopoly is on access to sell or even give away for free to the market of the device. There is no way around it unless you are a developer. It's anti competitive behavior that prevents access, grants total control of the market, and encourages dictatorial behavior.
