Why isn't Apple's "ecosystem" model illegal?

Why isn't their "ecosystem" model illegal? Shouldn't selling a product that only works if you buy another product from the same company be a crime? Shouldn't holding people's personal data inside an unnecessary ecosystem be a crime? Isn't it anticompetitive to force people to buy a product that isn't really even all that great on its own just because they already bought all your other stuff?

    It's okay if a company refuses to support some stuff. What should be illegal is withholding source code and intentionally hindering interoperability.

      This. Nobody is forcing anyone to buy fucking Apple products. You're annoyed by Apple? Then don't buy their products. Asking government to ban more shit is retarded. Regulations suck and do not work. See: Google monopoly
