    As for security risks to iPhone users if iOS were ever opened to other app sources, Apple could always leverage their considerable marketing expertise to educate customers that the Apple app store is the safest and only method guaranteed by Apple for installing software.
    You can already install third party software on your iphone by jailbreaking it. But it voids the warranty. That's all Apple has to do, is say fine, install what you want, but don't come crying to us if your phone gets malware or ransomware.

    Nothing. I can install apps from other sources and install other market places on my Android phone.
    Because Apple has a monopoly over anyone locked into the Apple ecosystem. If you have spend hundreds (or even thousands) of dollars on software on iOS, you can't change to a different phone OS without losing them.
    It looks like he made a decision based on his understanding of the Law, which is what a Supreme Court Justice is meant to do. The idea that Judges should make their rulings based on the ideology of the President who appointed them is wrong.
    and since there are other options for, computers, smart phones, and tablets then Apple it is not considered a monopoly

    How does Apple make such a guarantee anyway? A lot of malware is created by "legitimate" developers and disgruntled ex-employees, in addition to the many other means of exploiting security weaknesses in smart phones. The more people using a product, the more interest there will be in infiltrating that product.

    They don't make any guarantees. I think there have been some bad software that has gotten through. But it is pretty rare.

    Android has a simple software switch that allows you to install apps from 3rd party sources, but it pops up all sorts of dire warnings when you use it. If Apple does that then they'll be fine, at least legally. From a consumer standpoint, though, they have done years of marketing/deception suggesting that their products "just work" and are impervious to viruses and other exploits, and their most faithful customers (that is to say people who think computers are magic and can't find the power button without detailed instructions) might ignore similar warnings thinking, "It's Apple! What could go wrong?"
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God
