The collaborations of different ideas and groups, and working together to exceed customer service. Which is the reasons Apple has the advantage to sell their products at a price the company wants to. Apple also expanded their products, they started with Mac laptops, IPads, IPhones, to smart watches. They expand their products but in a smart way because a person needs an IPhone to have an Apple smart watch. So now the customer has to buy two products if they would like the one. Therefore, allowing Apple to price the products at their like. There wasn’t much I disagreed with in the article. I believe Apple is a great company and personally love their product. Yes, it would be nice if their prices were lower, but that goes for any smart phone out there right now. Any customer is going to pay significant price for a smart phone.

    One article points out that “a key part of Apple’s approach to products is that it deliberately creates devices that will appeal to the broadest possible market. However, many people don’t seem to understand that Apple doesn’t chase niche markets.
