The worst Apple products of all time

From mice to Macs, Apple has made plenty of clunkers.

It's been 45 years since Apple became a company, and it has released a lot of groundbreaking products over that time. But it hasn't all been iPhones and iPads—Apple has also made more than its fair share of failed, clunky, and just plain terrible products. Narrowing down our list was surprisingly tough, so we focused on products that had a combination of bad and impactful—nobody cares that the Pippin was terrible. With that in mind, here are our picks for the 10 worst Apple products of all time (in no particular order), and be sure to check out the best Apple products over at Macworld UK.
