The reason is its ONE system.
Windows, Android etc etc has to support a numerous number of various quality items. The result is ridiculous - a thousand way driver support because none of these companies communicate effectively.
Apple - whilst maybe not offering what some smart phones have to offer - give us a simple few model system. This is the only reason Apple has succeeded; they've taken the computer expert
out of the whole thing and given it to people who are not interested in tech; just in what tech can do for them. It has nothing to do with better/worse just getting it right with granny simpson up the road.
