[$$] There is a point when the Apple image fades

Not being a teenager or the wealthy parent of one, for more than a decade I bought iPhones, iMacs, MacBook Pros and desk devices because of their functionality for work and home and for what I perceived to be better quality, and an overall fun experience. Years after the introduction of the 7 and a couple of lost wireless earbuds later, even my 15-year-old niece chose to go back to the 6 phone because she no longer wants to lose another pair of wireless buds or carry the multiple accessories/adaptors needed to listen to her iPhone or Mac. More recently Apple removed many of the features of the MacBook Pro that made the devices easy to use.
