I was once in a conversation where an app developer for an android phone was listening to customer concerns. The app was a skill-development learning app.
One of the customers asked for the app being released in Apple App store, as they had an iPhone, while the app was available only on the Google Play Store.
The app developer remarked, “You own the iPhone man, you don’t need this skill development app.”
This statement made me think.
The app developer was right.
Not because I’m an iPhone user for almost six years now.
Not because I have something against the Android users.
Rather because Apple is indeed a statement.
It is not just a brand, it is a brand for those who have the money to afford it AND the personality to match to it.
It’s almost you can catch a rich non-Apple user and not-so-rich Apple user by the values they stand for. Yes there are exceptions to the rule where status game kicks in, however, most of Android users and Apple users have a lifestyle that defines their choice of brand.
For example, people with super expensive Android phones are the ones that despise iPhone the most. Whereas, iPhone users earning a mediocre income have nothing against Android users, because they know what they want is what their phone has.
Why are we talking about it right now?
Well, you know if you know!
