There has been a lot of negative press towards Apple in the past year, mostly because of their rising prices. Most of them are saying that Apple is becoming stagnant, and is on the decline. I was wondering, when do you all think this decline truly started? Some will say it was in 2011 when Steve Jobs passed away, in 2012 when Scott Forstall got the boot after the Apple Maps controversy, in 2013 when they introduced iOS7, in 2015 when their prices went up, and so on. Others even go back before Steve's death, to 2006 whenever they switched to Intel, 2007 when they moved towards mobile and allegedly their QC went down. So, when do you think it started? Now for me, I believe Apple was in a stagnant but healthy period from 2010-2013, but then the decline started. I've been using Apple products for a long time as a pro user, and they have really been neglecting us for a long time. You cannot buy a true Apple workstation in 2018. (The iMac Pro is NOT a good workstation for the common man, no way can a small business afford to buy computers priced up to $14,000 per unit) Their server equipment is gone, they are axing their airport products, and their OS is slowly moving away from the prosumers. The fact that they haven't updated the Mac Pro in 5 years but continue to sell it is a joke. I, like most others, knew that thing was going to fail regardless. Even their consumer products are becoming a joke. iOS has fallen from a stable and rock-solid OS (May not have been all that Android was/is, but it worked well) to a broken mess, their quality control is not what it used to be, their products are too expensive, their removal of ports is pointless, and they do not innovate like they used to. The line "Think Different" no longer applies to Apple.
