What is next after the smartphone?

Get the exclusive insider information straight from those who are actively building the mobile future. 

In a world that is still under various degrees of lockdown and social distancing, we've seen the demand for online immersive experiences skyrocket and in turn, making the mobile development field one of the hottest, in-demand job markets today. The smartphone and tablet sales are reaching plateaus, where as we're starting to see a shift to technology like VR and AR as well as the rearchitecting backend systems for encryption and data security improvements.

So, what does life and business look like beyond the smartphone? It's a world full of digital, immersive experiences that range from more in-depth functionality within iOS and Android apps as well as the expanding markets of virtual reality, augmented reality and extended reality that are changing the way we work and play by translating our real-life experiences into the new frontiers of digital worlds beyond the smartphone.
