Is This the Death of Mobile Apps, or Is There Still Hope?
With augmented reality and virtual reality on their way to becoming affordable for the masses, will they lead to the death of the mobile app as we know it?
Some people have been predicting that AI and VR will bring the end of the hand-held mobile app as we know it. Although these features may be coming to smartphones in the future, there’s no evidence that it will be here soon. So don’t get rid of your phone and apps just yet, and don’t be neglectful when it comes to caring for your phone.

There’s no chance we’ll be getting rid of apps or phones soon. With 70% of North America using a smartphone, nobody will be ditching their smartphone before the technology of VR and AI improves. There are a lot of predictions about how technology will evolve and change in the future. If technology and the Internet continue to expand and improve at the current rate, then we know that there will be amazing progress in the new few years. One day there may be direct brain-to-computer interfaces. Obviously, this technology won’t be mainstream any time soon, but there are people working on developing this kind of interface.

What sort of features can we expect from AI and VR?
It’s thought that, instead of using phone apps, we will be using our faces to control our apps with virtual reality. Also, instead of looking at our phones, our screens will become lightweight glasses that we wear.
Will smart glasses become the new smartphone?
Not any time soon. The costs of these products are still way too high to put them in the hands of the everyday person. Eventually, the technology will be cheaper to produce and the price point will come down to a reasonable and affordable price. You’ll be able to check your email without having to pull your phone out of your pocket, or even look up YouTube videos and watch them with your glasses.
Right now, smart glasses are still being beta-tested, and it’s clear that they’re not developed enough to be able to wear them in the real world for long periods of time. As they improve, these glasses will soon be comfortable enough to wear for twelve to sixteen hours as you go about your day.
Many estimated that smart glasses and other big developments are at least three to five years away. Some more conservative estimates even predict that these technology advancements are at least ten years away; the rich will be able to afford them right away, but it will take much longer for the rest of the population to be able to afford these technologies. So for now, smartphones and apps are safe.
