Times are changing and one brand has ousted a 13-year leader in having the “world’s most valuable brand.” Since 2000, Coca-Cola has held that title, but chances are, it’s not going to be a surprise who took the # 1 spot: Apple.

This shift happened when Apple came out ahead of the curve putting the consumer experience first.
