After that a CEO of the time Steve Jobs who had brought iOs series devices such as iPod, iPhone and iPad… etc. Yet, the most powerful point make these products gaining in popularity and be more popular the crucial role is cloud computing which is Apple Store integrated apps and services with app produce of average price is 0.99 dollar because these products has a background is virtual channel to help apps supplier easily sell online music, movies e-books and more mobile applications which makes Apple has very high profits.
