Apple invests billions into R&D, design, manufacture, and UX design for its devices. Your logic would then see them dealing with picking up the pieces for bricked devices, hacked passwords, lost data, viruses, etc.

Using an Apple devices is accepting a benevolent dictatorship, and it's a trade off tonnes of users are happy to make.

oh, I didn't know that they were giving away the devices for free.

The devices are currently costed for, presumably, a certain volume of support issues which I can only imagine is enormously minimised by the walled garden of the app store.
