Look in your pocket, on your desk, television or even around campus. Chances are that something that you own, or that you have seen recently has been influenced by Apple and its products.
Apple has become increasingly popular in the past 20 or so years with products such as the IPhone, IPad and MacBook as its breadwinners. On average, an Apple product is about three or four times more expensive.
The question is: Are Apple products worth the extra funds?
Millennials seem to think so, but it also depends on the perspective. The worth of Apple products depends on how much a person is willing to spend on a product and whether or not someone believes that it is worth the price.
People tend to leans more towards Apple products because of Apple’s stability and synchronization. The ability to start a task on one product and then smoothly transition to the next product is what makes Apple products favorable.
Besides the high prices, an Apple product like the MacBook does not work or do anything differently from a Microsoft laptop or other PC. Apple products are no less reliable than any other product on the market, and the high prices don’t make an Apple product any better.
Apple is always in the news, because they do an excellent job of staying ahead of the curve with constant updates and product upgrades.
Yesterday, Apple held its Keynote Event and unveiled a line of new products. The latest IPhone, the IPhone 6S, received a new upgrade. A new IPad was also at the forefront of the unveiling. The new IPad Pro is a cross between a tablet and a laptop that is meant to rival Microsoft’s Surface Pro. Also, a new version of the Apple TV was revealed.
The prices of the new products range from $649 to over $1,000.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It is up to the person buying the product to decide whether or not spending the extra money is worth it.
