    They're good quality but really expensive. I do not like their walled garden approach but the products are reliable.

    I think they're not worth paying the price for. I can buy a cheaper one and still be able to download most if not all apps I need and want. I don't find buying Apple products practical.

    If iOS can be used on Android devices,the Apple will go bankrupt.

    My wife uses iPhone myself samsung and from apple products I had iphone once for a short time and gave up on it, I also had ipod its burried somewhere i dont use it anymore.
    I dont like apple products because of theyre overpriced and when you update os you can't go back and you need iTunes to put music on your iphone.
    Microsoft has begun turning Windows into ios and I guess in the future i will have to ibstall linux on my pc

    ni hau. it is not only against the rules to use any other language than english, it is not polite.

    I use iOS and Windows. These are different operating systems. They can not be compared. I use the MAC OS to protect against malicious code when using the Internet. I like Windows for various programs, which are very many. Advantages and disadvantages can be listed endlessly.

    Not poking fun at you, but I suggest you google "Speculative Execution flaw". It affects the CPU, so everything is vulnerable.

    Take a read here:

    I do not want to make fun of anyone either, but ...

    The problems of Intel and BitTorrent are not related to iOS. Or Windows. Or Linux. I thought we were discussing Apple products. If this is someone's consolation, then I'm not a fan of Apple. But visiting doubtful sites is better through Safari ...

    I don't like what Apple has become today. I had a lot of Apple products (iMac, iPads, iPhones and still use their wifi routers).

    best combination for me is android + hackintosh :)

    Be honest to you, Apple are quite expensive to buy and Good Quality. However, You can make your own "Hackintosh" and simple follow some site at Tom86 site, they have list of hardware that will work, some parts may be little pricey and less pricey to make your own iMac.. In few year, the Apple will stop using Intel (Hackintosh), they are going to use there own chip Apple ARM cpu..

    To myself, my choice, I like imac computer, But most of my stuff is PC.. and I don't even own iPhone at all, Because I use Android smartphone.. But I do have iPods/iPod Touch..

    The software quality of macOS and iOS is not good. They lack direction and vision. Tim Cook only focuses on iPhone and nothing else. If iPhone fails, Apple will fail.

    Macs have always been bad in terms of quality. Either the OS was bad or the hardware was bad. The classic Mac OS was so unstable any application could take down the whole system. OS X improved on that, but then the hardware became bad. Beautiful, but bad. G4 cube I got and it overheated, plastic yellowed and cracked. I have had four Apple laptops and the first three have died on me because of a dead GPU:

    Powerbook G4: dead ATI GPU
    Macbook Pro (2006): dead ATI GPU
    Macbook Pro (2011): dead AMD GPU

    But it's not only ATI/AMD GPUs that die, Nvidia GPUs die on Macs too.

    Now the latest Macbooks have problems with their keyboards and the screens make a loud pop sound when the warm up. WTF? Oh and their GPUs will probably start dying soon too.

    Why do I keep buying these POS computers? They're beautiful, the trackpad can't be beat, the 16:10 Retina screen is easy on the eyes, and I'm married to the Mac/iOS ecosystem. It's like I have battered user syndrome. My 2015 MBP will be my last Mac for sure. I'm leaving you Apple, I can't take anymore of your abuse.

    Apple products are great although expensive.
