Apple is one of the companies in human history that has changed the way we communicated, consumed media and how we go about our day to day lives. Additionally, Apple is one of the companies with largest profits in the history of human civilization. From personal computing, smartphones, tablets to other aspects of life such as how we consume music- Apple revolutionized them all.
One of the byproducts of this revolution was the creation of a cult-like a fan following which have been termed iSheeps, Apple Sheep or my favorite term of them all – ‘Sheeple’. Every time Apple introduce a product the whole tech world goes ‘wow’, as everyone is quick to appreciate how innovative and inventive the Cupertino giants are. They are not at all hesitant to stand in long lines before the Apple Store overnight, even sleeping in tents there, just to get their hands on latest Apple gadget earlier than others.
However, on the other side of this spectrum lies skeptics, who constantly attributes Apple’s huge success with marketing than being innovative. In fact, many of them go as far as pointing out that Apple has seldom done anything innovative but repackaged existing technology in a different package. Here are 7 things that everyone thinks Apple invented but actually just repackages.
