Appledystopia: Disintegrating Apple’s Reality Distortion Field Since 2012

Let’s face it; Apple hypes its products and services more than any other company. Fanboys shill for the Cupertino tech giant, recommending every gadget it produces. If that’s not enough, public relations, influencers, and payola shape most of the news you receive. So-called journalists who have never written a line of code or worked in technology mislead us. It’s becoming difficult for consumers and investors to understand the company and its products and services.

Fiercely independent, Appledystopia does not profit from affiliations with tech or media companies. There’s no sponsored content on this site. Funded solely by advertising, Appledystopia’s mission is to provide the most accurate information about the Apple ecosystem and beyond.

Unlike many tech writers and YouTubers, I’ve worked in technology for a long time. I’ve written millions of lines of code and used just about every gadget, operating system, and app on the planet. I also use Windows, Linux, and Android devices, in addition to Apple merchandise. Apple makes some great products, but sometimes there’s a better option out there. Appledystopia keeps all possibilities open, never defaulting to Apple.


  1. Can you tell me if there is a procedure to follow when looking for channels I want to watch on Apple TV? For instance, check the channel web site; check the Apple Store, etc?

  2. Hi. Are you familiar with the iPhone 6s home button issue? I had this new phone a year ago, after unboxing I quickly noticed that the home button is not responsive if not pressed hard enough. Do you have any tips or solution for this? Thanks.

    1. I have an iPhone 6, which has pretty much the same Home button. I’ve had the phone for two and a half years, and the Home button still works fine. I’m not familiar with the issue. I did some research and most of the fixes involve cleaning the Home button with alcohol, which I don’t recommend. The best thing you can do is to take it into the Apple Store (especially if it is still under warranty) or a qualified service technician. You can also alter some Accessibility settings to turn on AssistiveTouch, which will present an on-screen Home button.

    1. Yes, they have a Yes TV app for Apple TV. It’s pretty cool — free and no need to activate it with a TV provider. I am seeing more networks cutting the cord themselves!

      Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to work in the US.

  3. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my Apple iPad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a YouTube sensation. My Apple iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  4. Hi! Is there any way I can gain early access to iOS 14? My friend told me she had it, but I’m not sure how to get it.
