The Ultimate Apple Ecosystem Buying Guide

They say that an apple a day keeps the doctor away; now, whilst you may not be able to afford a new Apple product every day, you can certainly make them a more prominent part of your daily life. This article shows you how you might do that by outlining what products within the Apple ecosystem are best and why they should be considered.

Why Apple? 

Apple has been the one of the leaders of modern mobile and digital technology for nearly a decade. From the introduction of the Nano to the announcement of the newest iPhone 13, they have been market leaders and have gained millions of users across the globe. Using the one operating system, Apple looks to make the user experience as enjoyable and streamlined as possible. Although their products are not cheap, they are well worth investing in, not only for their quality but for their style, convenience, and versatility.

5 Key Apple Products

Here at DID, we stock a massive range of Apple products. In this blog, we are going to include a list of 5 products from Apple that we feel are a must-haves. They range in price, but the quality is uniform. Be sure to follow the links and shop each of our collections, where we are sure that we will have a product from the Apple ecosystem that meets all of your needs.

Apple Watch

The perfect blend of style, performance, and connectivity, the Apple Watch is Apple's flagship wearable. With the new, more affordable SE edition now out, there has never been a better time to get your hands on one of Apple's most exciting creations to date. In-store and online, we stock the SE and the Series 7, both of Apple's latest wearable offerings.

With a compatible app, sleep tracking, step counters, a near 24-hour battery life, fast charging, a robust and durable build, and waterproof capabilities, there is nothing that these watches can not do. Offering serious competition to the likes of Fitbit and Samsung, the selection of Apple watches that we have available are seriously attractive options.


The humble iPad and its varieties have been one of the world's best-loved tablet offering for over a decade. Even to this day, it offers the perfect balance between phone and laptop. We offer a wide range of iPads with separate collections for the iPad Mini, the iPad Air, and the iPad Pro, (yes, we have iPad cases too). Each of our collections boasts competitive prices, and you can even avail of our Humm Finance option and buy now, pay later if you qualify, so your latest iPad is never that far away.

With huge battery life, seamless touchscreen capabilities, and the ability to integrate with all other apple products in the ecosystem and the famed App Store, an iPad is a sound investment.


A name that needs no introduction. The iPhone is one of the most used mobile devices worldwide, so it probably won't take much to get you to want one. At DID, we stock a large range of iPhones, ranging from the iPhone 11 to the iPhone 12 and 13 mini, regular, and Pro series. They might not come cheap (expect to pay at least €800 for one), but with an iPhone you can expect to get a huge range of applications, great processing speed, impressive camera quality, and convenience. Phone covers, screen protectors, and accessories are also available too, so be sure to check them out.

MacBook & MacBook Air

Apple's flagship laptop device, the MacBook, and its slicker younger sibling, the MacBook Air are a true one-of-a-kind piece of technology considering the value for money that you get. One of these models will set you back a €1200-1800, but you can always utilise our Humm Finance option and pay for it in instalments.

Why MacBook? Well, with ultra-fast processing speeds, the fastest CPU processing speed chip ever made, outstanding battery life, efficiency cores that ensure power is not chewed up, regardless of how long you are online, thermal efficiency with their aluminium heat spreader, beautiful screen quality, and compact design. We think that there is enough there along to convince you to consider a MacBook. There are so many brilliant features packed into this device that even our descriptions can do it no justice. So, you will have to just buy one and see for yourself.

Apple TV

'What is Apple TV?' we hear you ask, well, Apple TV is a digital media streaming device that works with a Bluetooth remote and can sync to your other Apple devices for convenience. It will allow you to easily watch your favourite channels and videos, and when paired with the Apple TV+ streaming service, it is a real winner. It is certainly one of the lesser-known 'essentials' on the list, but we think that it is a hidden gem, and in the years to come, we will hear a lot more from Apple regarding their move into streaming and television.
