Apple WORKS. Never had an issue with any Apple item I have owned. Had nothing but issues with Android. Give me 10 million dollars and I still would say no to Android.
I always find it funny that 15 or so ago years ago people used to say "don't support Microsoft they are the man..... Support Apple because they aren't the man and they are so much better and have better products" and so on and so forth.
Now that Apple are successful with better products that people generally don't have issues with unless they do something stupid with it (like hit it with a brick or try to un-lock it or something equally stupid) suddenly Apple are the Man and we shouldn't support the man because they make you pay for it rah rah blah blah.... I support items I know will work... Apple products work.
And every app I have gotten for free or bought and still use, still works with every following generation.
