      As you say, it’s managing hardware and software interactions.
      For more detail, have a look at a book like https://www.amazon.com/Operating-System-Concepts-Abraham-Silberschatz/dp/1119800366/

      For example I’ve written code for single board computers and technically we didn’t use an operating system at all. The code was something like the BIOS and nothing on the scale of Windows, Linux, Apple OS, iOS or Android.

      We use such things daily. Example: Ever use a remote for your TV? There’s a computer in that too but rarely is there an OS there.
