For many people the ipad is a UFO in the hi-tech market. If we account for all those interested in this product, it is undoubtedly the United States whose output has made the most noise. The initial feedback was both positive and negative. Indeed, in launching its digital tablet, Apple responded to consumer expectations.
However, negative reviews had already been doing the rounds even before the ipad was marketed. The first criticism was the name used by Apple to name his digital tablet: iPad. In the language of Shakespeare, iPad means "Buffer".
Therefore, the name of the new Apple product has had many criticisms and was ridiculed on its name even before its launch. It is, therefore, important to consider the real Apple's objective of launching this type of product.
According to a study conducted by "ComScore", there are 49% of U.S. consumers who have positive feelings toward IPAD, while 27% are indifferent. This figure shows the excitement around the iPad as the product has just been sold.
Apple has managed to impose new standards on the market. The firm has always impressed, and the difference from these other competitors such as Microsoft, by positioning itself on innovative products. The heart of Apple's business is the manufacture of computers. They still managed to develop new products like mobile phones (iPhone) or music players (iPod).
Every product that Apple has launched is a success. From the MacBook to the iPhone, they all helped build the reputation of Apple. The Apple brand is an innovative company that makes the news. The growing recognition of the mark is a sign of balance and strength for Apple and its stakeholders. Try an Apple product, it is often adopted as the slogan says. Apple has been able to market products that meet consumer expectations, both in design and in terms of maneuverability. All products allow for intuitive operation.
Apple has managed to create a universe and a certain length around its products. Thus, each product is unique in its mode of use. That means only one client will be able to have several different products that are often compatible with the same accessories (chargers, headsets, docks). This strategy has allowed Apple to retain customers and make customers dependent on its iTunes platform. In recent years, Apple's profits have risen steadily and Apple stores have proliferated.
Weaknesses are few for Apple. However, the fact that the brand has for years relied on one man: Steve Jobs, contributes to weakening the stock price especially when that man is unwell. In addition, a series of trivia has tarnished the reputation of the firm (manufacturing defect in the iPod, the iPhone explosion).
Applications are becoming more numerous. Indeed, many start-ups are currently involved in developing applications for Apple products. These applications combine fun to make useful products work at a time.
