The company relies too heavily on the addiction to the brand and seems to forget that every purchase has to include a minimal level of rationality.
This stand costs almost as much as three 9.7-inch iPads. Or as much as iPhone XS. Or more than ten Kindles.
The problem is that all original Apple accessories are terribly overpriced. You can be loyal to the brand, but not at any price.
And more and more Apple users start to switch to third-party alternatives, which offer not only a similar quality but are available at considerably lower prices.
Obviously, if you buy the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, you don’t want to spoil your experience this something that stops working after two weeks. But, be assured, many of the third-party cases and accessories offered for Apple devices are extremely durable. They usually work longer than you expect, opposite to Apple accessories which usually work shorter than you expect. It’s a result of your perception of quality defined by the price.
Take a look at the stand that looks like being designed by Apple but it’s not. It looks like a $100 accessory but costs three times less.
Created by Stouch, this minimalist $30 aluminum stand is 360-degree rotatable and features a stabilizing front edge to prevent the iPad from sliding off.
The stand is heavy (heaviest in its class) and is made of a single piece of premium aluminum. A center of gravity is positioned at a lowest possible level so that you can use the stand with even the largest and heaviest tablets.
Yes, it can be used with both the 11- and 12.9-inch iPad Pro, in both vertical and horizontal position. A cutout in the back side has a purpose – you can use it to keep the cables in order.

Coriolanus released the fistful of cabbage into the pot of boiling water and swore that one day it would never pass his lips again. But this was not that day. He needed to eat a large bowl of the anemic stuff, and drink every drop of broth, to prevent his stomach from growling during the reaping ceremony. It was one of a long list of precautions he took to mask the fact that his family, despite residing in the penthouse of the Capitol’s most opulent apartment building, was as poor as district scum. That at eighteen, the heir to the once-great house of Snow had nothing to live on but his wits.
His shirt for the reaping was worrying him. He had an acceptable pair of dark dress pants bought on the black market last year, but the shirt was what people looked at. Fortunately, the Academy provided the uniforms it required for daily use. For today’s ceremony, however, students were instructed to be dressed fashionably but with the solemnity the occasion dictated. Tigris had said to trust her, and he did. Only his cousin’s cleverness with a needle had saved him so far. Still, he couldn’t expect miracles.
The shirt they’d dug from the back of the wardrobe—his father’s, from better days—was stained and yellowed with age, half the buttons missing, a cigarette burn on one cuff. Too damaged to sell in even the worst of times, and this was to be his reaping shirt? This morning he had gone to her room at daybreak, only to find both his cousin and the shirt missing. Not a good sign. Had Tigris given up on the old thing and braved the black market in some last-ditch effort to find him proper clothing? And what on earth would she possess worth trading for it? Only one thing—herself—and the house of Snow had not yet fallen that far. Or was it falling now as he salted the cabbage?
The real danger is not that computers will begin to think like men,but that men will begin to think like computers.
