Apple's Operating Systems Are Malware
We urge all iOS users to switch to a mobile device that supports Replicant.
Windows can be easily replaced with a free operating system on most PCs, but not iOS: there are ways to install Android on some iThings, but its free counterpart, Replicant, cannot be installed on any of them.
You may want to check the Runs-on/iOS category for more software.
If you are technically minded, you may find it interesting to build these apps from source code rather than download them from the App Store.
