6 reasons why Apple sucks
Once I was a huge fan of Apple. It is company that is praised by millions and hated by more millions. But now I will tell you what’s wrong with Apple really, and 6 reasons why Apple sucks beyond just the iPhone product.
#1. Cheap plastic for ridiculous money
Apple’s cables break most often. Ever seen this happen to your iPhone or Macbook cables? Welcome to the Apple world. The cables cost many times more than the cables for other companies devices. There is absolutely nothing special about them. No design, no anything. Only one obvious thing: they are made of cheap, non-solid plastic, that will break in months of use. And you will have to buy another, quite soon.
#2. It will gradually become painfully slow
Doesn’t matter if it’s iPhone, iPad or Macbook. With every new upgrade of iOS or OS X software, you think you get latest and greatest features from the greatest company in the world? Not really. Often times all you get is more bugs and more “features” with more bugs. On top of it all, your device gets slower and slower. But why you ask? They want you to buy the latest and greatest iPhone or Macbook that won’t be slow.
Ever seen iPhone 4S with latest iOS 9? It’s a pathetic thing to look at. However, Apple made millions of people who own the device to upgrade to latest and “greatest” iOS. All they did is made it unusable in order to give an incentive to buy newer hardware.
#3. It just won’t last longer than a year before it’s broken
In my personal experience, Apple products are the worst quality wise. They break right on schedule. In one year something eventually breaks. There is no lasting Apple product. All they want is for you to buy a replacement and spend more ridiculous money on something that will break later again.
My iPhone’s Wi-Fi stopped working in less than a year. My Macbook’s battery will not last longer than a few minutes in less than a year. All my cables are broken in months. I’m asking you, do you really want to follow me in my Apple journey?
#4. It makes you look like everyone else
As a developer, I liked iOS for having so many apps available. I had to buy iPhone. But then I realized it sucks to take out my iPhone showing other people that I follow the trend and that I spent big money on something everybody wants and buys.
After all my negative experience, I’ve met many people who just want Apple for no reason. After being given explanation on how bad it is, they would still want to buy it to follow the trend.
#5. It won’t let you get out easily
Once you have all your contacts, pictures and stuff in the Apple’s world (iCloud) is it easy to move on to another platform? Not at all. They make things work only inside Apple ecosystem, so i.e., if you’re using iMessage extensively, you will stay with Apple as long as possible.
#6th reason why Apple sucks is the Design it makes!
Yes, surprisingly, it sucks too. I’ve seen so many compliments to Macbook and OS X before getting the laptop. People would say how the design of the whole OS is thought well. But why in the world I feel such a relief going back to my old laptop with Windows 7? I literally enjoy Windows interface after all.
I won’t even mention what happened to iOS a while ago…
