Will you be buying the next iPhone (announced on Sept 12)?
I'm not an Apple fan. I do however support many clients who use Apple tech (iPod, iPad, iPhone, iMac, MacBook, etc). It's well designed, nicely made kit.
However, for the vast majority of Donline clients, on a bang-for-buck basis, I don't & wouldn't recommend it.
There is a small subset of computer users (high end production of Video, Music, Design) where Apple kit may (debatable!) be an appropriate solution: the correct tool for the job.
Generally though, using any metric you care to look at: compatibility, supportability, ease of use, longevity, security, price - I can offer a Wintel solution which will do the job better, faster, cheaper.
Regarding mobiles, generally I recommend Android.
For example: over the last two years I have been using Sony Xperia Z3 Compact phones in the business. I just upgraded the Donline phones last week, & was so happy with the Z3s, I have switched to Sony Xperia X Compact phones. These new devices are even better & I'm very happy to recommend them if you are looking for a new mobile phone.
Virtually none of the techies that I know, use or recommend Apple kit.
Hmmm, what is the moral of this story...
