Before we start

I have set this criterion only by my product type. Instead of 2 cases and 10 watch straps, I have created only one type from each product range like 1 Apple watch and 1 watch strap. Also, I am going to use only Apple brand in my decisions. In this point, we will eliminate too many accessories by other brands that can be find in Apple’s website and of course Beats. For sure, I would not give the products that not included in Turkey market. However, I will use every Apple product-service.

Why do we buy 3 products?

Because our main topic is creating an ecosystem. Using Handoff and iCloud to continue a file you have opened on your iPhone on your Mac will be more comfortable than sending this file to yourself. There is no like technology that can follow you instantly like Apple Watch, the data of the phone itself will be insufficient. In addition, you can spend less time with your phone, as the notifications you will see from the watch will improve the reflex of not checking the notifications regularly. Accessories are literally expensive but it’s all about the brand. Having a wireless charging adapter gives you the comfort of leaving 2 devices (phone or airPods) on top of it. For me, I didn’t put AirPods on it. I think it’s all worth the difference, you can trust my word.

Personal Opinion

Apple products sometimes can be confusing and fatiguing. Also, everybody’s decision is going to different because our needs are different. Generally, I have some advices for you.

  • If you have so many photos & videos and you also get the backups regularly, I suggest you buy 200 GB iCloud storage.
  • If you are going to use your MacBook for programming, I suggest you have one with 16 GB RAM. So, you can use for much longer time and deal with small/average projects. If you are going to use MacBook for the video stuff, you should consider buying a 16” MacBook Pro ((512GB SSD, 32GB RAM and over).
