Failed Apple Products
Apple is renowned for being one of the most valuable companies in the world, iPhones & MacBooks sell in their millions every time they launch a new version but they haven't always struck gold. Here are a few of them:
- •NewtonThe Apple Newton was Apple's first attempt at a handheld device, the failure of this product certainly taught them how to do it right the second time with the iPhone.
- •ClothingApple tried to get into fashion years back, it didn't quite catch on, however I'm sure if any of this stuff is lingering around anywhere, it would be an expensive collectors item.
- •QuickTakeApple tried to launch a physical camera line years back, no-one really wanted on, however millions now have Apple's camera technology built right into their smartphones, sat in their pockets.
- •PippinDid you know that Apple actually tried to get into the video game console market? Apple's product line could be very different if this had worked out, Apple could have been competing with Sony & Microsoft to create powerful consoles, however this collaboration with Bandai fell short & just wasn't marketed enough to lift off.
