At on point in time it seemed like the iPhone and all if its predecessors were the hottest tech piece on the market. Everyone who was someone had an Apple product, whether it be the latest phone, iPod, or Macbook. Times have now changed and Steve Jobs‘ apple tree is no longer the ripest for the pickings.
In a new survey conducted by The Verge and consulting firm Reticle Research, findings see that users do not have many positive feelings towards Apple, in some cases more negative feelings. The poll was taken from September 28th to October 10th and used 1,520 people in the U.S. that nationally represented the company’s clientele, based on the 2016 U.S. Census estimates.
Apple was put up against other tech and product companies such as Facebook, Amazon, Google and Microsoft. When asked on a scale of 1 to 5, how much the users would care if one of the companies disappeared tomorrow, with 5 meaning they would care very much, Apple was at the bottom of the list with Amazon taking the top spot.
When asked how much they enjoyed the companies products, once again Apple fell to the bottom of the bucket. The iPhone maker also fell behind Google and Amazon as a company the respondents would recommend to their family and friends.
In another interesting poll, where Twitter and “your bank” was introduced as a competitor, respondents were asked how they would rate their level of trust in the companies when dealing with their personal information.
Twitter came in last as the company that is least trusted with personal files, and “your bank” came as the top contender as most trusted. In between from least trusted to most trusted was Facebook, Apple, Microsoft, Google and Amazon right under the most trusted.
