Why Apple Products Are So Expensive | So Expensive

15 427
Apple's reputation and brand allow it to charge a premium for its high-end products, like the iPhone 11 Pro Max, MacBook Pro, or the iMac Pro. Adding memory or storage to these products increases the cost even more. Because of this "Apple Tax," Apple products are often more expensive than competitors, bringing in huge profits for Apple.

I still don't understand why they are so expensive? Is it because people will buy their products no matter the cost?

well they really removed the usb and sd whatever ports, is really because they really want it to be thinner. I mean, sure. They are Apple, powerful, reliable(maybe), but you just CAN'T expect them to add all those ports onto such a thin laptop.

After many years of using Windows and Android, after using iOS and Apple products for only over 2 years I'd say I'm more with Apple than others when it comes to my Laptops and Phone. Sure, it may be expensive as this video indicates, but I find that from its OS to battery life, everything about Apple I find is much more stable than other competitor brand technology I've come across.
After the standard 2 years contact on a Samsung phone, by the end of the day my Android phone is dead within a few mere hours. Or even in an hour in the worst case. This was on a Galaxy S7 edge at the time. Meanwhile while my current contract on an iPhone XR is almost up, I can still maintain a 50% battery even when the entire day is up. Both cases were when the phones would be on minimal usage. It's come to the point where both my mom and I, who were both first time Apple users when it came to mobile phones, decided to actually continue using our current XR phones when the contract is up, since she was so impressed with the quality of its battery. Goodbye, our long history of having to throw away and get new Android phone models each time.
My laptop history on the other hand, oh boy was I ever so frustrated with Window products. By the time 2 years have passed on a Windows laptop, its battery without it being plugged in to a charger would not even last 3 hours. Meanwhile having used my current Macbook Pro for a little over 5 years now its battery may have waned by now, but those first 2 years I remember being able to work this Laptop like mad for hours, no problem! As for viruses... don't even get me started on my history with Windows and constant viruses. I used to play games, which meant downloading "suspicious" programs from time to time. MacOS may be fundamentally different since it accepts less amount of programs than Windows does, but having to use my Macbook for years without ever downloading a single virus checking software and its still running fine says something. Oh and you wouldn't want to forget how MacOS caters to those who still like Windows - Bootcamp for ya! You're able to get both OS in one Apple laptop product!
Well, that was a long rant.
My point is, I may not be like those avid consumers who wait in line in an Apple store just to get the latest Apple products and are willing to spend Apple's inflated prices. But this is me just stating that compared to my long history with Windows and Android products, it only took 1 Macbook and 1 iPhone for my loyalty for technology has switched to Apple just like that. Compared to a product that easily fails within a few short years, having a working stable product which I can use for years to come is a winner in my book. Sure, technology will get better over the years, but if it has taken me only 1 product for Apple to win me over, while many others with Windows and Android and yet still failed to win me over with its lack of functionality and stability, you know something's wrong there.
Right, have I also mentioned how I'm still using an old iPad Mini 4 model and it's still running very smoothly? Oh how many Samsung tablets we threw away because as the years passed on Android's OS took ages to even navigate through... yikes.

I just spent $30 on a pair of WIRED Apple headphones because mine quit working shortly after my warranty expired. That’s ridiculous. Especially when you consider that a) the headphones already come free with the phone and b) you used to be able to take a pair of broken headphones to an Apple store, regardless of how old they were or where you got them, and exchange them for a new pair. The false monopoly that Apple is trying to create is disgusting. And unfortunately once you’ve bought into the Apple empire, you’re trapped because it costs so much time and money to get out. Oh, you spent hundreds or even thousands of dollars on music via iTunes? Sorry, you can’t transfer it elsewhere. You have a family computer with more than one person who uses iTunes? That sucks cuz you can’t have multiple iTunes accounts on a single computer. You liked the industry standard headphone jack? Lololol get fucked, now you gotta buy an adapter unless you want to buy our expensive ass earbuds.
I can’t wait until my iPhone is paid off and I can finally get away from the Apple cult. 🙄

My favorite part about apple products is the ease of upgradeability of both RAM and storage. It's so easy, all I have to do is go to the nearest store and waste thousands of dollars on a whole new device I don't need.

Should add “Made by Android fans.” It’s not all about specs, it’s about execution and support. Apple supports their product through software updates way longer than any Android phone. Possibly one of the most biased videos BI created.

Once again the leading crypto asset BITCOIN is currently trading up marginally at above $11,500 region as the BTC bulls now target $12,000 resistance level and they are still acting very strong by taking full control of the market. However with the strength possessed by the BTC bulls, it is wise we get involved in a day trading to grow a very strong portfolio with the little we hold at the moment. its been successful for me for over 2 years because i was smart enough to find a working strategy/daily signals which was provided by a pro trader known as Young, he has been a known signal provider in the crypto space today which has proven to be very accurate and yield great profits. Last month i was able to grow my 1.1btc to 6.8btc with Young daily signals which you would agree is a very good profit, however i would advice everyone out there to take great advantage to grow the little they hold now and trade with his signals so as to grow a very strong portfolio ahead, Young can be reach via Instagram via @you_ngli or email linyoun56g@gmail .com

All you bitter window/pc plebes complaining about apple make me laugh. Let me stoop down to your level of petty insults.
I’ve used android and windows pc and they are garbage. First off with windows they constantly need updates and constantly bombard me with useless “tips” that annoy me, they also steal your data. I’ve had Samsung’s phones and they it’s the same exact issue,
In b4 just build a pc. I don’t have the time or the patience for that. And besides it will still have a garbage o.s.
In b4 apple takes your data too. Yeah no shit but not as much as Samsung or windows.
In b4 apple cost more. Yep I know and while it cost more it actually works. And the resale value is still good
In b4 stop being lazy and build a pc. Ima busy man and don’t have time for that.
Inb4 Linux, I don’t have the time or patience to learn what that even is
Prove me wrong windows users
Pro tip: you literally can’t
P.s. I didn’t even bring up that apple tablets “iPads” are much better
P.p.s apple products are of better quality I’ve had both so I know what I am talking about

Honestly the best iPhone was the iPhone 4 after that it went to shit, battery, memory, Just everything. They force you to upgrade because apps and certain things won’t work on old models. If I wasn’t so used to iPhones and hated androids as much I’d make the switch in a heartbeat. Only reason I upgrade is for the camera or when my apps stop working!
