Apple's deal with their hardware is not so much to tie their OS to it but to prevent repair by 3rd parties.

This is visible with components in iPhones being coded to the phone (3rd parties cannot replace buttons) and T2.  Instead of a simple repair, it forces customers to take their Apple phones or computers to the Apple store or approved repair centre where they often get convinced through upselling (repairs are so often prohibitively expensive compared to buying new) to replace the phone or computer.

Not just upselling, even too "lazy" to do a proper analysis.
