AR: The Future of Apple in 2020, My Predictions
Apple the Sun, which every one thinks is moving towards it’s end, is not over yet. Not because at present Apple is highly profitable, but they have something else in mind.
Apple has forgotten iPhones. They I believe are working towards radically new design ideas, rather than incremental improvements. Apple has been alleged to be working on AR headset.
Also they showed of their apps like Measure which are AR based, and look awesome. They also showcased on WWDC, multiplayer AR gaming in iPads. We always thought Apple to be focusing on hardware, and that’s why they never went to Software. But in AR no one is as good as them.
People have criticized Apple on not improving Siri, like Google Assistant, but Apple does not see future in AI. Well that is correct for the fact only Google supports AI. Elon Musk, and Larry Page have already presented their concern over AI, and therefore Apple opts out of AI.
I feel like Apple is leaving iPhone, and are planning to launch new device to finish smartphone industry which might be succide for iPhones also. Though Apple will keep launching iPhones annually till launch of the AR device
Apple have a history of getting their hands of with old things, and moving on to new technologies. I strongly believe that Apple being devoted to AR is the next trend in tech world.
Now one thing is for sure that Apple is working on some AR platform, and a device. But the thing is it’s form factor, will it be something like Apple watch or Airpods, or will it be some mainstream products like Macs, iPhones and iPads.
Also what’s worth taking note is that allegedly it would be a headset, and not a hand held device. I am personally not in favour of headset, because it wiuld probably more bulky and difficult to manage, and issolating is from surroundings.
The information about the product are sketchy, but it is quite certain that Apple sees future in AR.
