Fans of the iPhone in Argentina may have to wait at least a year to officially purchase the Apple device, as the government continues to impose restrictions on imports of the world’s bestselling smartphone.
The Wall Street Journal reports that whilst the iPhone isn’t banned in the country, its restrictions on mobile operators extend to devices that are not in manufactured there. With Apple’s main supply partners located in Asia (for now), it doesn’t fulfill that criteria and therefore sales are restricted in the country.
While I appreciate that there are many happy Android, Blackberry and WinMo users out there, after previously being an Apple hater turned convert to the iPhone I believe that the way in which the device along with its sister products the iPod Touch and iPad have been created showcase some good principles and best practices that many in our industry (regardless of their position on Apple) could follow more frequently, even if you don’t agree with some of their methods or products.
This article is dedicated to what I believe are these great “life” lessons which can be drawn from many sources both online and offline. The reason why the focus of this article is on Apple is mainly due to the unique way it’s got lessons to highlight within its hardware and build quality, the way it’s software functions and even how it browses the web. There’s nothing like getting inspired from a non-website source to get you thinking, and hopefully this article will do just that for you too!
Note: It’s worth mentioning that many of the lessons and practices outlined in this article could be based on any number of other mobile devices, however it’s worth saying that Apple do genuinely seem able to really connect with an audience’s needs when it comes to an effective user interface.
