Thousands of Apple iphone owners were upset and felt betrayed in September 2007 when just 90 days after its introduction the iphone 4GB became obsolete. Apple had decided to discontinue the product, to focus on just the 8GB version خرید ساعت هوشمند اپل, which they also dropped by $200 which further infuriated iphone owners.
This although a rare occurrence for Apple, highlights the dangers of buying the latest and greatest Apple gadget. You stand in line for hours to get the next amazing device, give them your hard earned money, for it simply to become obsolete by a newer model within months. Therefore if you’re to buy wisely, its worth following a few simple steps.
Although Apple can adjust their products at any time, they do tend to follow somewhat of a schedule. If you’re looking to buy an mp3 player such as the Shuffle, Nano or Touch, it would be wise to make your purchase around September time, as this tends to be when Apple announce their latest mp3 player models in time for the December purchase madness. Apple has followed this trend for several years now and did it again this year with the 2010 mp3 player Nano, mp3 player Shuffle and mp3 player Nano.

The MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops are extremely popular and because of this, tend to be refreshed much more frequently than their desktop equivalents such as the Mac pc Pro or the Mac pc mini. The MacBooks’ tend to be upgraded to the latest specs around twice a year – around Spring & Autumn – again in time for the December buying spree. So the best time to buy a MacBook or MacBook Pro would be as soon as they are updated – then you’ll know that you might have got a good the regular few months before Apple updates them again.
The iMac is also gaining in popularity that makes it needs to see more frequent updates, so wait for the next refresh before making a purchase.

The ipad is Apple’s newest and most sought after product. It was released in April 2010 as Apple’s latest cutting edge device. Ever since then Apple has updated its other mobile phones with faster processors and an amazing new retina screen. It therefore looks likely that Apple will cross over this technology to their ipad range soon,
