They sell stuff with crazy high profit margin, those stuff also easily break, and Apple charge crazy high price to fix it. (that's why their main income right now is "Apple services", it's a combination from their IAP income, and aftermarket services)

Anonymous, 22 Jul 2019If Chinese brands can cost $1000 then what low margin are you ta... moreWTH you talking about? Apple hires as much cheap labour as the Chinese do. Now that USA is having issues with China, they want to move to India and keep ding the same, so don't speak about Chinese companies as if Americans were not to blame as well.

I don't get it, I'm not hating but how does Apple make so much money, aren't the only products they sell phones, computers, smartwatches and such? You have Samsung on the other hand, which makes all sort of electro domestics, chips, screens, phones. Someone explain to me how the hell does Apple make more money than Samsung?

Why Microsoft is missing from your list? It's currently 60th.

"Apple fans would love the fact that the Cupertino company is second in the world by yearly profits - $59 billion, despite the unimpressive iPhone sales in the last quarter."

Only if they're chumps. That quote to me would be embarrassing as an Apple owner knowing my device has cheap parts yet due to profit margin I'm bending over taking it.

I'm not Apple fanboy but I want to try iPhone. But this year's iPhone is very ugly. I'm long time android user. What I need is superb performance. Nothing more.

Poor features and too expensive. But why is it liked by many people? I think executives at Apple companies really are capitalists. To the extent that they can sell dust to the grave digger though.
