This is how America destroys other foreign companies to win. When it can’t compete, it destroys you though sanction and various other means. Do whatever it takes to keep American hegemony.

China must retaliate then. A ban on Apple in China, plus more support to HarmonyOS to eventually move away from Android OS.
 
China is stuck because it’s growth depends on foreign investments. A ban will hurt China itself.
Chinese foreign investments were $140B in 2019, around 10% from the US. Chinese growth is mainly domestic consumption. Apple products pay very little (I think around $8 per $1,000 phone) to Chinese workers. A ban will "hurt" China, but it will be absolutely devastating on Apple to lose the world's largest market.
