I am agree with you. But if we talk about future and look as the user or customer. Than their is many vendors of android so competition take place and phone become cheaper. But in the case of iphone it's costly than android phones.
Apple is able invest a huge amount of money behind research and development only because of the profit earned from iOS and iPhone devices.
I have heard a news where a 15 years old boy from china sold his kidney to buy an iPad. Well, this says it all for Apple.
Non technical people don't care or even know whether iOS is open source of not.

Apple makes a boatload of money with iOS devices. Are you saying Apple should open-source iOS in order for competition to emerge, so that they then make less money because they'll sell fewer and cheaper devices? What kind of business advice is that? Apple is not a charity.
Besides, while Android has made great strides, it didn't come without problems caused specifically by its open source nature, and Apple isn't done dealing with it, either.
