Advice for future researchers:
One tip I have for looking for sources about how Apple isn't the best is: I would often have trouble looking for sources in the SVC databases so I would go on Google and find sources from what I knew were already reliable sources (such as The New York Times) and copy and paste the title of the article in the SVC one-search to find it.
Another tip I have for finding sources: I would search up big events in Apple's past (such as the Foxconn reports from around 2012) to find some of the less favorable things Apple has done in the past to reveal more about the company's goals and positions, and then research that.
Some advice for researching overall would be: That in researching you are going to get stuck a lot, so you're going to have to get creative. There's no space for banging your head against the wall and trying something that didn't work repeatedly. As the great Einstein once said "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results" (Einstein). Try something new and see if that works, and if it does try more strategies like that.
