Why do people pretend to hate apple when it's the best tech money can buy?

Once you buy an Apple device, you'll be sucked into the ecosystem. If you have an iPad, MacBook, airpods and other apple devices, your life will be a breeze as these devices can work together.

In short, Apple indirectly forces you to spend more. Some apple products can't even be repaired. And apple insurance is a scam.

And other tiny simple things will annoy the shit out of you

Example: You can't transfer your WhatsApp data for free if you switch from Android to iphone. It's difficult to use other wireless headphones on iphone. Apps that are free on Android will be paid apps on apple store.
I have a macbook which I love to use daily but when I connect to an external monitor using hdmi it looks like shit and I can't switch off my Macbook screen, Whereas my windows laptop can do that with minimal effort .

Some yes, but I think some of their practices like repairs, parts etc is just monopolizing the market and it's not great

I know some people who genuinely don't like Apple products. Others steer clear out of principle. I say to each his/her own. Personally, I love my iPhone, but I don't have Macbook yet and doubt I'd ever pay that kind of money.

I think people just feel inferior because of how amazing the tech is. People naturally want to hate on something that makes them feel small

Everyone loves to hate on the companies that are making moves and making the best products. I don't know why that is. But we know competitors are trying to keep up with Apple so clearly it is the best. I just hate on them because they keep finding ways to charge more, i.e. making the chargers two separate pieces that you have to buy.

I love Apple! My apple devices have outlasted my family's non-ios gadgets. Despite the love though, it's a common ground to admit the price difference like having to pay more for accessories that, in comparison, are made ready and available in other brands. So, I know people who don't hate Apple but can't appreciate it because to them, it's the best tech not everyone can afford.

True which other company gives 6 yrs of OS update and battery on iphone 13 pro is unbelievable (15 yrs of SOT on heavy use).
iPhone A chips ,Camera and iOS is unbeatable.
Apple clean sweeps in tablet sector.
M1 macbooks are insanely powerful, iMac are unmatched.
It's amazing how apple has achieved things which people can't even imagine few years back
And tbh latest flagships of samsung,Sony cost even more than iphones.
