2015 is halfway over already. Individuals and organizations alike are looking back at the past six months and ahead at the next to help plan and predict 2015 in its entirety. This has been an exciting year for the technology and mobile device industries with notable trends and developments. Right off the bat, the Apple Watch was introduced to the public this year. It was just as successful as expected with pre-order delivery dates ranging into early September of this year. The variety of styles and synced operation with the iPhone 5 and 6 made this device a must-have for Apple-lovers around the globe.
Mobile devices this year also put the spotlight on health by including scanners and monitors that help users track their daily exercise and activities. More than ever before, smartphones are including pedometers, sleep monitors and activity logs that can help owners be healthier and review their success over a period of time. While it hasn’t been released yet, 2015 could see the Simband. This product is in the works through Samsung as a wearable device with comprehensive health software. This industry focus on health is helping owners and users throughout the world pay more attention to their mind, body and overall health.
2015 has been a great year for mobile devices of all types
Google also helped the mobile industry by changing its algorithms to favor websites with mobile-friendly platforms. More people than ever use their smartphones and tablets to visit websites and research companies. Google recognized this trend and responded to the demands of users. As more and more smartphone users utilized their devices for online browsing, the more supportive Google has been. This great advancement of 2015 is also thanks to companies and organizations worldwide that have instituted a BYOD policy in the office.
BYOD – Bring Your Own Device, encourages employees to bring and work on the mobile device of their choice instead of the provided hardware given by the company. Desktop computers run slow and lack the programs that today’s modern employees need to do a good job. It turns out that a significant amount of employees would rather bring their own laptops or tablets into work to accomplish both small tasks and large-scale projects. Organizations that focus on employee’s satisfaction and productivity have embrace BYOD so far in 2015 and this trend doesn’t show any signs of lightening up.
So far, 2015 has been a great year for mobile devices of all types. In the next six months we expect to see further developments in all the aforementioned arenas and even new trends like curved or flexible devices. With an impressive start, the second half should be a good one for electronic device manufacturers and repair organizations like Dr.PhoneFix.
