Do You Really Need An iPad After An iPhone And iMac?

Technology advances everyday, and the proof of that lies in the frequent launches of new products. One company, which has come up with amazing products right from the start, is Apple. The magic that this company started creating has enveloped the whole world, and one can see the huge fascination, love and loyalty that people have towards Apple products. It’s become a trend, a mania, and a lot more.

However, does that mean that every product launched by Apple is worth buying? While all the products are masterpieces, when looked at individually, some of them happen to be overlapping in terms of use. Here’s an attempt to look at three products – iMac, iPad and iPhone – to try and understand, why everyone does not need to have every other product launched by Apple.


While a major segment of computer users still use the conventional Windows PC, iMac has been adopted officially in certain industries, such as of that film editing, music mixing, education etc. Considering the kind of processors and features that these machines have, they are brilliant to run all kinds of software on, and are a boon to professionals, especially those, whose work demands usage of computers on a regular basis, such as photographers, graphic designers, website developers, film professionals etc.
The only major problem here – it’s not portable.


If a computer is not portable, one thing that definitely is portable is a mobile phone. iPhone comes with a variety of brilliant features and facilities, helping people to indulge in work and entertainment, both, on the go. This smartphone has received a brilliant response in the market, and is considered to be the ultimate phone to own, by many people.
It pretty much can do anything and everything that an iMac can (browsing web, creating and editing documents, playing games etc.) except that there are two major problems. The first is that one cannot run any sophisticated software on a phone, such as those of editing, music mixing etc. And the second thing is that a phone is still a phone, with a smaller screen and a limited battery. So one can’t possibly do everything on it.


This can’t exactly be called as a bridge between an iMac and an iPhone, but it most definitely gives a ‘larger’ experience of the same kind of functions that a phone offers. One can play games, read e-books, make video and voice calls, create and save documents of all kinds, and do many other things that one can also do on an iPhone.

So what’s the point here?

The point is that Apple has created a variety of gadgets in different price ranges, for different kinds of users. But some are repetitive in nature. For someone who has an iPhone, and is pretty much going to be using it in the same way (or at the same time, such as while traveling etc.) as an iPad, then it doesn’t make sense to take the latter. This phenomenon applies vice versa too.

Similarly, for someone who has a Macbook Pro, and will be using an iMac for nothing but surfing the web, it doesn’t make sense to take the latter.
So when gadgets are high priced, one computer, and one portable device – such as a phone or a tablet are enough. There is nothing special in the new gadgets, except that they look really attractive. And of course, the final decision needs to be based on how one plans the usage of these gadgets.
