Apple never claimed to do any of those things first but it does every single one of them better.
People just won't quit on the Apple hate. I never understood why Windows/Android users feel the need to constantly enforce that their product decision is better than ours. Does it look like I give a fuck? It's not like us Apple users are constantly making fun of you guys for pointless reasons.
I think most of the Apple hate stems from their trolling of patents more than anything. I disagree that they make most products better, but they do market very well.
