This is simply not covered by the user agreements of Apple Inc.

Technically, it is possible to make Hackintosh or even HackiPhone, but this is illegal, unstable, inconvenient, and will not be supported by anyone, at least legally.

From a technical point of view, the impossibility of changing the operating system on a smartphone is explained by the fact that the software part (software) must be able to correctly interact with the hardware part (hardware). If you turn to desktop Windows, you will see that this interaction is provided through the intermediary programs called "drivers". Drivers are created by hardware manufacturers for a given operating system (OS). Perhaps you still remember the times when the necessary drivers were installed from a CD and there you had to choose the right OS version.

A smartphone is initially developed for a specific OS. Together with the smartphone, drivers are also developed that allow the OS to work correctly with the device. If you try to install a different OS on your smartphone, you will face the issue of missing drivers for the new OS, since the manufacturer has not released drivers for this OS.

Firstly, iOS cannot be installed due to its closed code.

Secondly, Mac OS can be installed on a computer. See the Hackintosh project.
