It’s pretty remarkable that, 10 years after the iPhone first debuted, that it’s still recognizably an iPhone.
Put an iPhone 7 on the table next to an original iPhone, and, while it would be clear that one is more advanced and sophisticated than the other, you can easily see they share the same DNA. Apps, multi-touch, the home button — the overall design and the platform it enables has been very consistent through the decade of its existence.
That’s why, when Mashable‘s Tech Team took it upon themselves to imagine what the iPhone of 2020 would look like, we ended up with something that — while clearly a step beyond the smartphones of today — is unmistakably an iPhone. But an iPhone with an edge-to-edge screen, no home button, a more AI-driven version of iOS, and no ports whatsoever.
After revealing our vision, we invited a panel of experts to dissect it — to tell us what we got right and what we got wrong — on our MashTalk podcast. iMore Managing Editor Serenity Caldwell, Loup Ventures Managing Partner Gene Munster, and USA Today Tech Columnist Ed Baig join Mashable‘s Pete Pachal, Raymond Wong, Lance Ulanoff, and Sam Sheffer in a spirited discussion about the future of the iPhone.
