No, I can't run SOFTWARE on it. Nothing I write will run on iOS without that license fee. I love iOS, and  its ability to sync perfectly with the Mac. This is still a huge PITA with Android. But for Android, I can just write some code and run it there. No license required. 

For example, there is a fully functioning free version of Einstein for iPhone and iPad publicly available from us, but you will not be able to run that on you phone without paying 100$ to Apple.
