Fine by whom? Apple and Google are effectively a joint monopoly providing what are now essential services (smart phone/mobile). If they can behave as they wish, then that it a failure of the regulatory environment.
Google is not essential, Huawei must be working on an Android alternative because their new phone models cannot use Android due to the trade ban. If you want to stick it to Google, get a new Huawei. Maybe people in key positions should not get a Huawei for security reasons, but I'm a nobody, no worries.

Also, Apple and Google cannot behave as they wish because they don't own or operate the pipelines of the Internet: fiber, 4/5G, cables. The infrastructure is still in hands of local companies. The only long term worry is that, Amazon and FB are trying to become an ISP via satellite and that's cannot be allowed to happen. One thing is they refuse to host a website in their servers and a whole different one is they refuse to let data pass through their pipes.
