One thing that no one can take away from Apple is the way how Apple products work with each other. Apple iPhones sync with the Macbooks in such a seamless way that you don’t even have to look at your phone once it is connected with your MacBook. You can reply to your iMessages on the Macbook and can receive all the notifications directly on the Mac.
