We all know how popular Apple has become as a brand. And, the credit goes to the wonderful Apple Ecosystem, besides its iPhone and Mac. With this article, I hope you will get to know how the whole ecosystem works and more importantly how you as a student can extract the most out of it.
What is this ‘Apple Ecosystem’?
Apple Ecosystem is a combination of different Apple products that gives you a sense of continuity of work when used together or simultaneously. To put it in simple words, you watch a movie on your MacBook, and only after 15 minutes, you realize that you are out of battery on your device. In case you still want to continue viewing with the same experience without any considerable change, you can switch to your iPhone and continue your hassle-free viewing from the same frame.
What’s in it for students?
Apart from the content viewing example that I stated above, the Apple ecosystem supports almost everything you will ever need as a student. Take this situation, for example, you are working on an assignment. You have your air pods plugged in your ear connected with your phone and your laptop on which you are typing your assignment. You feel like pasting an image that greatly improves the authenticity of your work. In regular cases, you will need either a wired cable or any other third-party app to transfer the same from your phone to the laptop, but when you are in an Apple ecosystem you can do the same as easily as a copy-paste method. This works even if you want to copy-paste a text message from your phone to your assignment directly.
But I cannot afford an Apple device!
Most students in India don’t have any Apple devices. So, would that stop you from using the favours of an Apple ecosystem? Simply put ‘yes’. But it is not that polarising at all. You can still create your own ecosystem with the pool of devices you have and that’s the actual motivation of all this. Apple created this ecosystem to lure more people into buying its products. But if you don’t have Apple device, you should create your own ‘Android Ecosystem’.
