So are android phones, and yet they don't sell them in the Apple store.

Why pay staff and rent costs to sell someone else's product that directly competes with your own? You posted this in the economics forum and there's a standard, obvious economic answer - you will only do it if it maximises your own profits. In the case of selling someone else's directly competing product it won't. Selling your own gambles sees all the revenue come to you. Selling someone else's is virtually worthless. That makes the net opportunity cost too great.
