If anybody ‘kills’ the iPhone, it’s going to be Apple
Ever since Apple introduced the iPhone more than 10 years ago, everyone else in the business has copied the newcomer. We’ve been waiting for more than a decade for someone to “kill” the iPhone as has been claimed over and over, but that never happened. Instead, Apple killed the competition, including Nokia, Palm, BlackBerry, and Microsoft. Even Google’s original plan for Android became dead on arrival the minute Steve Jobs unveiled the first iPhone model, and Google retooled its mobile platform to be more like what was then called iPhone OS. The companies that survived either copied the iPhone or struggled to make any money. Just look at what’s available from that competition today and you’ll see a myriad of iPhone X clones, too many to name.
With all that in mind, I think that If anybody kills the iPhone it’ll be Apple, and it won’t be the way you think. The company will probably do it on its own terms, without any iPhone actually dying in the process — and the first sign is already here.
