Early models were very robust with an iPod working fine after 10 years but my MacBook is now struggling a bit after 5. I think the quality is coming down a bit.
    Likely due to your battery. Had the same thing happen and found out my battery was expanding and in poor condition. When the system detects battery degradation it throttles down your system to keep the heat down which in turn affects the performance significantly.

    Solution replace or remove battery completely. The apple store guys have a way of checking your battery health.

    Wow apple killed it in new WWDC 2019.

    Killer mac pro announced with insane specs with up to 28 cores Xeon processor, up to 1.5 TB of RAM memory and ability install to two Radeon Pro Vega II GPUs. They also announced a 32 inch 6k XDR display. Although not for the cheepos but really nice specs.

    Also really cool features in ios 13 like sharing your music with other people through their wireless ear pods/beats products simultaneously.

    To qualify my bias I currently use a gaming PC with GTX 1080 and have a 2011 macbook pro. I started off with iphones, switched to a couple android devices like some Samsung and google smartphones and now am back to Apple smartphones. I find their system very intuitive and just works right like an extension of my mind whenever I need to do something trivial.

    IMO for video and photo editing the MacOS is far superior to PC. I invested in Final Cut Pro X and have tried many other video editors prior and none come close to FCP X based on ease of use, efficiency, and features. Therefore I will most likely get the newest MacBook pro to compliment.

    In terms of gaming I still feel PCs are the best and I plan on sticking with my current PC for this purpose and general use.

    Recently I purchased the apple air pods 2 and the new power beats pro which are both amazing wireless earbuds and far superior than anything else I tried which includes other boss products, jabra wireless ones, and the Sony WH 1000XM3.

    So both systems have their advantages and disadvantages and depend on preferences and how you plan on using them.

    I was thinking the same thing. It always strikes me as a little odd that some people make it their mission to tell people why their choices don't pass muster. The market place will always decide who (or what product) will be successful. When I walk by the Apple store, there's always a crowd, and judging by the number of staff on hand, I'm guessing that they have the sales to match.

    If you've ever worked in sales & marketing, you know the kiss of death is when you tell a client that they don't know what they're talking about. It's like saying that you're too stupid/uninformed to understand the obvious superiority of my product. Never a good strategy. The consumer will always decide who offers the preferred product and right now, Apple seems to be doing fine.

    You can do it yourself. iOS will tell you the health of your battery in the settings.

    I know I'll buy another Apple iPhone. I know I'll buy another Lenovo Workstation-grade laptop. Both help me make money.

    The real question is: Do I go back to PC to play games? Or do I go console? I currently have a PS4 which I really don't play... I don't play many video games, but I tell myself I want to (Elite Dangerous and BF5 stay dormant).

    I actually like Apple products, airpods, macbook, phone. Hell still debating between an Apple watch or a fitbit Ionic.
