Thought that this would be a fun to see how much I am truly spending per year on apple products. I am currently on a 4 year cycle for my main laptop (MacBook Pro, 13", mid level storage option). Costs about $1300 with the student discount. This is $325/year. I upgrade my iPhone every two years. I purchase the mid-level iPhone Plus sized model. Including apple care, I just pulled the trigger for one this morning clocking in at $998 (ouch), or $499/year My iPad update schedule is a little more sporadic. It began with the original iPad, then the iPad 3rd gen, and I skipped a whole lot of generations before going to the iPad Pro 9.7". This is my favorite apple product so far (having not yet experienced the 7+ however) so I anticipate that I may get on a regular upgrade cycle at some point. Let us assume three years for now. The 128GB model was 699/3=233/year. So, not including accessories (such as expensive ones such as the Apple pencil, keyboard, and back case for IPP), I am spending 1057 on Apple hardware per year of use. In addition, I give them 10 bucks a month for apple music (+120), an extra buck a month for 50GB of iCloud storage (+12). So a shade under $1200 a year. Interesting to see that the phone is def the most expensive of all at 500 a year. I think I will try to keep the laptop longer, as it is pretty rock solid and should last closer to the six year range. New Apple products are just so tempting though, and have an uncanny ability to make older generations look like total POS!!
