Doesn't make any sense at all. Not any company in the world will sell any product for which their customer must then turn to another company (Apple and the likes) to operate the original product.
This is handing out the quality/operability/usability/future of your product to a 3rd party who is totally beyond your own control.
Never gonna happen.
