16 ‘Apple Inc.’ Reviews
Solid products with strong emphasis on design and quality.
I've used or continue to use a wide variety of Apple products including:
iPhone 1 - 7
iPod Nano, Shuffle
Macbook Air 11
Macbook 12 Retina
iMac 27 (several generations)
iPad 1, 2, 3, mini, Pro
27" Thunderbolt Display
Misc chargers, cables
I have not had any major issues with any of these products. I consider this a very impressive feat, as I've had fewer products by other manufacturers with many more issues. There is a price premium for these products, but it seems to be worth the extra.
Funny how the reviews get worse as you scroll up through the years!
I used to love Apple and have owned over 4 different iPhones, but lately it seems that with Steve Jobs passing, things are no longer the same and the company is making ridiculous decisions. Can't connect airpod headphones to new macbook, need to buy a dongle to connect iPhone 7 to new macbook and can't listen to lighting-based headphones while doing so since there's only one port etc. etc. What a joke.
Apple may not be the pioneer of putting turds in dresses to crank up prices, but they certainly made that their flagship business model. I have literally not seen one Apple product that did not have a superior Android or Microsoft equivalent.
The hardware, on phones and computers alike, are very typically outdated upon release. If you look on YouTube, you'll see that you can build your own PC for thousands of dollars less than buying a Mac.
I consider Apple the Mercedes-Benz of snobby consumerist status symbols.
There is a worm in the current Apple
I have been buying Apple since the IIe in 1995. I am extremely disappointed with the way the current Apple Inc. is being run. It seems they are going after the quick profit and no longer thinking quality or long term affects of their direction. I have spent 9 months, 500+ hours of phone time, 24+ genius bar visits and talked with 200+ senior Tech Advisers and I am on my 10th broken, refurbished, Iphone. It has gotten so bad Apple assigned an executive liaison to lock down my activity. I have tried the feedback line, written firstname.lastname@example.org, written every executive in apple, written every board member, contacted the BBB and state AGs in three states and I still have a broken device. They are updating their system to the point where I am about to loose communication with my phone and computers. Tell me Apple is a good company and I will have a great laugh.
iMac is great
Great but way too expensive for the quality. I love the look of it though.
I bought mine on Amazon after seeing that the price is $50 less than in the store. I still had to pay tax, but $50 is still $50 !
