Use brand new Apple products.
Apple product chief analyst “cooperative” Guo Mingchi recently made an extremely interesting prediction. This is related to the fate of Apple’s flagship product line iPhone. According to this, the fate of the iPhone can only last for more than 10 years, after which it will be completely replaced by another product.
Guo’s comments indicate that it will take 10 years for the iPhone to be replaced with products that focus on augmented reality. This is a technology that superimposes digital images onto the real world, helping users no longer need to insert their face into the smartphone screen.

Technology with a miniature touch screen. It is true that without the iPhone, the mobile phone industry would not have come to this point.
Analyst Ming-Chi Guo emphasized in his analysis that Apple has set a goal to replace the iPhone with new AR-related technology products within the next 10 years. He said that Apple will sell more than 1 billion of these new devices, which means it will completely replace the current 1 billion iPhone users.
“There are now more than 1 billion iPhone active users. If Apple plans to completely replace the iPhone with new AR devices within 10 years, it means that Apple needs to sell at least 1 billion AR devices within 10 years,” Guo said.
“If the new AR device is positioned as an accessory for Mac or iPhone, it will not be conducive to the growth of the product line. A stand-alone AR device means that it has its own ecosystem and provides the most complete and flexible user experience.”
According to Mr. Guo, Apple’s AR devices, especially augmented reality headsets, will be released in 2022 and will be equipped with extremely powerful processors, equivalent to M1 chips. Mac computers today. The device will work completely independently, without connecting an iPhone or Mac computer, and has its own application.
