Apple dominates the market

Apple is very close to becoming the first $2 trillion company by market capitalisation.  It also is now 6,5% of the entire S$P 500, the index of the biggest 500 shares in America.  That is a huge percentage of an index for any one company to have and at its peak, 35 years ago, IBM was 6,4% of the market.  It is amazing if for so many years people knocked Apple shares giving a variety of reasons why they would not rise and they have now gone absolutely crazy.  Later this year of course the new iPhones are going to be released including their first 5G phone.  As somebody who owned and sold Apple (at a good profit) at considerably lower prices than now I cannot help but feel that it is just too high, but it is one of those companies that really absolutely leads and totally dominates in its market.

Apple dominates the Smartphone industry, but it is way to expensive for me.

Apple may currently be dominating the market but truth is that they are falling behind a bit. They are not the first to release 5g phones to the market. They do not have the best cameras or the fastest operating systems. I would never go back to apple when I can pay a quarter of the price for a phone which is better in all respects.

Definitely a brand of quality product and its market dominance denotes this.

I am not a apple fan at all of Apple I would not be able to know if it is a good thing for the sale or not. I am not technology very advanced I use the basics on any phone.

Apple will forever grow in the market. I believe that if you are an Apple customer, you will probably buy into all the other Apple products (depending on the work you do of course). Same goes for Samsung. But Apple has a much bigger target market.

I still cannot pay so much for the brand. You pay for what you get - oh wait made in china sticker. it is a pretty brand and well known but i am as they say a cheap skate

I know Apple is one of the best but I am all for cost saving. Though I have an apple phone handed down to me by my daughter which I still need to insert a sim and see what it is all about, I have not gotten to it yet as I am a very simple person when it comes to phones and technology.

Apple is doing very well and is also very expensive to have and repair. It will always dominate the market

Well done to Apple. I personally am not a fan of apple products. My preference is android and I think I will stick to it. I don't know many people who does uses Iphones but the few I do are Apple lovers true and true.

It is amazing how Apple dominates the global handset market by capturing 66% of industry profits and 32% of the overall handset revenue. Very strong leader in the major markets like the USA, EU and Japan is one of the reasons that Apple can still operate at a profit level that its competitors can only wish for.

It is true, I have witnessed that once a person has used Apple they tend to stick with it. It must be pretty hip and cool.

Apple has and always will dominate the market whether it is justifiable or not.

Apple has indeed dominated the market and is one of the leading brands but I personally do not have an Iphone. I think the one thing that would already annoy me is the compatibility. I have heard you cant just share music or certain things which would not work for me. I have seen the quality of the cameras which are exceptional however more than that i can not comment , I know people with Iphones who have switched back to android because they are not happy.I think its all about the users preference.

I have never used or owned an apple phone. But from what I have heard I don't think they are user friendly. I also understand that they are very pricy .

Apple has been popular since day one,now they are the brand that most people want. it's a very expensive product but I think it's all worth it in the end.

That is incredible for Apple to be dominating the market. I am an apple user and I don't think I would be able to go back to any other brand of cellphone.

Look at that! Despite their exorbitant prices people are still buying and making Apple wealthier and wealthier. At $2 trillion, Appleā€™s market value is now higher than the GDP of numerous developed countries. How insane? #ShadeThrown

I am not such a big fan of apple. Apple has in the past removed customer reviews from its online store and this means that customers cant provide useful feedback on their products on Apple stores especially if a product might be bad. Like for example they had 735 1 star reviews on one of their phones but due to the fact that they removed these reviews one cannot tell whether that specific phone is good or not just by looking at the page and secondly their products are way to overprized.

I don't like apple products . I don't think they are user friendly and they are over prices. David has a interesting point , I think Bill feels like he won.

I find the Apple products to be extremely overpriced. Although they may be good quality, I am happy with my Samsung cellphone. I have a small ipad which I was given as a prize at varsity. I found that it is very restricted in terms of what can be copied onto it. I found it a mission to copy music onto it using itunes, as opposed to simply being able to copy and paste music or pictures on Android devices.

I have never owned any of the Apple products but would love to get one some day.

I'm definitely considering upgrading to apple soon. Never used it or bought apple products before but only been hearing good things about Apple.

I have never owned or use an apple product so i wouldn't be able to comment on how the product is however I've heard its a good brand and popular among the younger generation

It's great to see how Apple Dominate I am not a fan of Apple at all I had an I Pad that I won at Cradlestone Mall just after they opened up I think I used it a month and then it ended up lying in my drawer. I gave it to my dad to sell.

Their products have a lot of followers at a young age and I have no doubt that they will continue to grow from strength to strength.

Happy for Apple. My husband loves it, I don't think it's user friendly and super pricey.

Although Apple is expensive, I will never use anything else. Once you get to know Apple it is very user friendly, I am glad to see them dominating.

Nicolene  said:

I don't think I'll ever use anything else again except for Apple. It is expensive, but it's definitely worth it. They have a strong service strategy & Apple's ecosystem is strong enough to guarantee it a steady inflow of revenue in the coming years. I just love it and they've done a great job!

I have always been a bit skeptical about the Apple products and I always though I would never use and Apple product because it's so expensive, but now I have 2 products from Apple and I still want more. With Huawei trying to be as bad as Apple, I can't wait to see the Apple 5G phone.

Interesting to see how they dominate and keep users loyal. Apple is a good brand, but it is pricey to have.

Besides the functionality of an Android vs Apple devices, I do think I went for an Apple product simply for its aesthetics which is indeed very expensive. I enjoy my phone right now but I really do need to listen and watch those tutorials to get the full use of the phone!

Clare  said:

I have never used Apple. So i am not sure how this brand is i have had a brief encounter with an Apple phone and i personal did not like it. Maybe if i got to use it for sometime and get the hang of it maybe i could like it. But Well done to the creators of this Brand you guys and ladies have done a great job since.

As an Apple user I have to admit how expensive it is however, I cannot bring myself to use any other brand. Apple really knows how to get one loyal to their brand.
