Apple iPhone 9

Apple iPhone 9

What's the iPhone like in 2020? And how different are today's smartphones? From graphene and holograms to solar charging and self-healing screens, we are looking forward to 40 amazing innovations that tend to form iPhone 9 and further.
At Mac world we spend a lot of time wondering about next generation Apple devices. (If you share our curiosity, see our iPhone 8, iPad 5, iPad Pro 2, Apple Watch 3, and Apple Car articles, and what Apple will do in the 2017 edition.) But sometimes it takes a step backwards and Think about the long term, and the bigger picture. Where is the technology going? What is the future? And what would Apple's smartphone look like in 2018, by 2020, by 2030 and beyond?

In this article we discuss some of the paths that smartphone technology can take in the years to come, starting with the iPhone 9, which by today's trend should emerge somewhere between 2018 and 2020.
As we go further into the future, our predictions will become increasingly speculative, and many of these paths will inevitably turn into blind alleys. But we love to wear our future glasses and make some predictions about the trend we expect in the next few years. If you want to know what kind of iPhone you will portray in the future.

The development of charging and charging
Again and again, UK Tech Week Podcasts go back to the topic of 'top smartphone': the idea that the golden age of smartphones with rapid technological advances and vast experience differences (between one generation and the next generation, or between one factory and another factory) is now more.
Smartphones have become commoditized, and there are only minor and recurring differences between newly launched phones and those you bought last year - hence less incentive to upgrade. Smartphones are now basically 'pretty good'.

Yes, maybe. Perhaps the greatest growth potential - however, for various opposite reasons, one of the most neglected so far - is the battery life. Battery technicians continue to improve, but smartphone makers (and Apple are just as guilty as anyone) keep cramming more power-hungry components into a slimmer chassis so that the battery life ends in almost the same conditions.

In the next few years, we suspect, battery life will be a priority for mobile phone makers and consumers. Part of this is because the phone is now almost as slim and fast as others want it to be; But partly due to some cool battery technology developments are beginning to fall within the reach of mobile consumer budgets.
Remote wireless charging
It is widely assumed that the final iPhone 2017 (whether iPhone 7 or iPhone 8) will feature a limited version of wireless charging - the like, common with current technology standards, where you still have to place the device physically on a charging mat. This is easier, but not just a game changer, because both elements must be contacted.


The real advance that many people expect is wireless long-distance charging. It may not appear on iPhone 2017, but it could be one for the long term.

Bloomberg thinks Apple is working on long-term wireless charging, potentially charging at a distance of about 1 meter using magnetic resonance near the field. And some vague comments from the CEO of a charging company suggested Apple might be planning something more ambitious.

Steve Rizzone, CEO of Energous, spoke to The Verge before CES 2017 and dropped some key pointers about the exclusive "exclusive strategic partnership" that the company signed a few years ago and which has delayed the launch of its wireless charging technology.
"The 'key' partner is supposedly Apple," watching The Verge, "and Energous-despite refusing to name the partners - is certainly happy to fuel the speculation. Rizzone said the partnership is" one of the largest consumer electronics companies In the world I can not tell you who it is, but I can guarantee that you have the product from this company to your people, sitting at your desk, or at home. '"


Energous is not the only company that does wireless charging remotely. In February 2017 it was reported that Disney Research had discovered a new method for transmitting wireless power across the room: users would be able to charge electronic devices anywhere in the room, just as they are connected with WiFi with the latest technology.

"In this work, we have demonstrated the power of room-scale wireless," says associate laboratory director Alanson Sample, "tap
