How did Apple make its presence in the smartphone market globally?

Apple Inc, a company founded on April 1, 1976, entered the world of smartphone manufacturing in 2007. The first iPhone was launched on June 29, 2007, when Steves Jobs introduced a touch screen device that could be handled with one hand via a single button Just when qwerty consoles were making waves from BlackBerry to other smartphone players around the world who were trying to get the most out of the smartphone industry.

Steve introduced the first iPhone with a huge screen (3.5 inch), without any keyboard but one button to operate, and a full touch screen with multi-touch functions, and it was certainly introduced as an evolutionary device in the market. The first iPhone with 4GB of RAM was launched at a price of 499 US dollars, which is about 40 thousand rupees in India. The 8GB RAM variant is priced at $599 which is around 48,000 rupees in Indian currency.

Since then until today, the company has launched its smartphones every year with great enthusiasm. In fact, the brand has created a face value and when we talk about quality, the brand especially works on the uniqueness of its product. Speaking from a marketing angle, the tech giant has worked hard to become a tech giant. As Simon Sinek said in his video called The Golden Circle, it further shows that people buy according to what the seller sells, how the seller sells and why they sell – thus, intent plays a very important role, when we do it. We talk business strategy, and Apple really does justice to it.

How did the iPhone make technology more special?

Apple revolutionized it in 2007, by removing a physical keyboard from a smartphone. When Jobs highlighted the device as β€œan iPod, a phone, and connected to the internet,” all in one smartphone β€” the iPhone shaped the future of smartphone technology globally. It has already set a benchmark for the premium smartphone category across the globe.

Today, even after the death of the founder, the iPhone stands tall in the most premium smartphone category. But with great technology comes a great price β€” and Apple is working to maintain the premium smartphone category to make its iPhone series stand out from the crowd. Recently, Apple launched the latest iPhone 14 series globally, which is available at a starting price of Rs 79,990 onwards. So, if you are ready to buy an iPhone, you should have the resources to buy one!

Why are Android phones cheaper than iPhones?

Android and iOS are among the most popular operating systems in the world today. These two systems dominate the market, but earlier it was Windows OS, Blackberry OS and Java that used to help the smartphone do the daily task without any hurdles – but they are extinct in today’s time.

Today, these two platforms – Android and iOS – lead the world of smartphones, and there are users who are still discussing and comparing both devices – trying to justify which one performs better.

But there is one more thing people are always talking about – the pricing of Android phone and iOS smartphones.

Android devices are cheaper than iPhones and I assure that you must have registered the devices to know the similarities and different factors.

Android is significantly less expensive, when compared to the iPhone, in fact, Android had nearly 85% of the smartphone market share globally, while iOS had 15% of the market share.

What is the best operating system – Android-iOS?

It’s a big debatable topic when we start comparing both operating systems. Android is a Linux-based operating system that is partly an open source and readily available platform – this is one of the reasons why Android dominates the majority of smartphones on the market.

On the other hand, iOS has design elements that are seen as a more user-friendly operating system available exclusively for Apple devices – and therefore it does not have open source capabilities, and therefore is not available to the masses. Also, when we talk about safety and security, the iOS platform is more secure as compared to the Android platforms.

One should choose a phone that fits in his pocket, use and purpose. If you have a budget of over Rs 80,000 and are looking for a style statement along with security for your database, iOS will be a good proposition.

But if we talk about India, our nation is largely dominated by middle-class people who definitely dream of having an iPhone but are holding themselves back due to the price of a premium smartphone. This gives the customer no choice but to choose the Android devices that are under the respective budget.

Android dominates the market

Android smartphones are largely dominating the global market and there are a number of players who have manufactured smartphones with Google based operating system. Brands like Oppo, Vivo, Nokia, OnePlus, Samsung, Xiaomi, POCO, etc. are bringing devices that have all the services a person needs.

From long battery life to having a great camera, fast processor and enough space to store the entire universe of the user, Android has more options to choose from depending on budget, features, and availability. Unfortunately, Apple, on the other hand, releases a batch of smartphones, once a year, and loyal customers of iOS devices will have to wait another 12 months for the latest version. But this is not the case with Android smartphones – the technology continues to evolve every month – and companies continue to upgrade and release new variants within two months based on market demand.

Hence, an Android smartphone has the accessibility, affordability, and features that are almost iOS-like. But those iOS people believe and feel the power of the iPhone processor and its unmatched performance, thus, they are willing to pay more than Rs 80,000 – Rs 95,000 to own an iPhone instead of going for Android devices, which may come with a stronger battery, great processor and possibly flexibility (Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 and Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4, Oppo Find N, Moto Razr 5G-2020, Xiaomi Mi MIX Fold, TCL Trifold and more).
