@YeapJieZhiMark-5492 We have closed the duplicate issue raised: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/326626/index.html and will help you in this thread.
As Stefan mentioned on the Stack Overflow for the same query, The short answer is that these are complementary offerings that work great together. IoT Hub is an Azure cloud service and Azure Sphere is a device technology.

For more context, please have a look at the below information.

IoT Hub is a managed service, hosted in the cloud, that acts as a central message hub for bi-directional communication between your IoT application and the devices it manages. You can use Azure IoT Hub to build IoT solutions with reliable and secure communications between millions of IoT devices and a cloud-hosted solution backend. You can connect virtually any device to IoT Hub

Azure Sphere is a secured, high-level application platform with built-in communication and security features for internet-connected devices. It includes a secured microcontroller unit, a custom Linux-based operating system, and a cloud-based security service that provides continuous, renewable security.

What is your scenario? What exactly are you trying to achieve? I would suggest you, kindly check the documentation What Azure technologies and services can you use to create IoT solutions for more details.

Do let us know if that helps or have any further queries.
