An Apple A Day

Richard Carter, Channel Sales Director at Nimans delves into the world of technology……
Having recently returned from the world’s biggest ‘innovation event’ in Las Vegas it’s clear technology is going to have an even deeper impact in our working and home lives this year.
‘CES 2017 Catapults a Connected World’ - the official press release proclaimed… with
5G, cars, clothes, content, health care, sports, travel, smart cities, AR, VR and robotics all taking centre stage.
CES showcased the connected future of technology as more than 3,800 exhibiting companies and 175,000 industry professionals, including 55,000 from outside the U.S., convened to drive the ever-evolving global technology industry further forward.
Away from CES was an equally impressive milestone as the iPhone celebrated its 10th anniversary –and despite all the latest cutting edge tech talk in Vegas it got me thinking if there’s there been one single device that has made a bigger impact in the modern era.
There’s no doubt the iPhone has inspired a modern communication and technology revolution – and the business is on the brink of a major financial milestone.
The US tech giant will have made more than a trillion dollars from the iPhone and its related products by the middle of the year, analysts say.
They estimate that cumulative sales of iPhones and other hardware that uses the iOS software — including the iPad, iPod touch, Apple Watch and Apple TV — will reach almost £800 billion by the summer. Sales from iOS services, such as Apple’s cut of app revenues will help Apple become the first company with a stock market value of $1 trillion.
The iPhone has made Apple the world's most valuable company and the next 10 years will be even more intriguing.
