Question: Why Is Apple So Expensive?

Are Apple products overpriced?

Apple Products Aren’t Overpriced. Apple does not quibble with the fact that, on average, Apple products cost more than similar products made by other manufacturers. Instead, it argues that its products are so superior that they’re worth the price hike.

Why is Apple so bad?

Apple is a Terrible Company. Apple’s only in business because they’re a symbol of social status, not because they’re high quality products. This is the most annoying part of Apple as a company. There is always another product of equal or higher quality for a much lower price 99% of the time (I’ll expand later).

Why do people buy Apple products?

There’s one big reason people buy Apple products: the ecosystem. Apple continued to build out this ecosystem by changing the way its products interacted with one another. Apple added the ability to use iMessage and FaceTime from an iPad, for example, allowing you to carry on your iPhone conversations on a tablet.

One major reason for Apple’s success is its dynamic, constantly changing business plan. Jobs intently studied the market and tried to ascertain the pulse of the audience. Apple originally started as just another computer company. Apple had to expand its offerings if it was to grow.

Is it better to buy iPhone from carrier or Apple?

The Apple Store will probably provide you with a better experience, but if you time it right, your carrier might offer you a better price. As a result, if you buy your phone at an Apple Store, you can actually see how much each phone will cost you under each plan.

Is Apple stock a good buy?

Apple stock may not be the great buy it was last year. This is particularly evident by a recent run-up in the stock’s price-to-earnings ratio — from below 17 last June to nearly 26 today. But a 26 P/E for Apple stock is fair given the durability of its iPhone business and rapid growth in services and wearables.
