I could even guess why their profit margin is so much lower. Apple has so much power that it can squeeze most of the profits from their ecosystem companies down to the last drop as if dripping a slow death, but just making sure you survive to serve them like a slave.
The gross profit margin decreased from 10.1% of the corresponding period of 2011 to 7.6% for
the period under review, this was mainly due to the gross profit margin of Apple’s products is relatively lower
than other existing products, which is justifiable as Apple’s products are publicly known as best-selling IT
products and in great market demand.
