Conclusion For 35 years Apple has been a trend-setter company able to foresee thefuture of domestic computer and consumer electronics. it will probably continue during the next decades. because their strength is the innovation . And they know, how to “think different”.We still think there are some recommendations to Apple which have to be filled in future: Collaborate with more technology related industries and companies. Aim for more interaction with companies. Make the iMac more computable. Loosen the closed ecosystem approach. Improvement in map & navigation apps. !!……Apple, go on innovating…..!! 29
