“Over the last 10 years, Apple Inc has done a rather amazing job of disrupting quite a few industries. By my account, it has dramatically impacted the PC, Tablet, CE, Telecom, Music and TV industries in a big way, and I believe that they are on the cusp of disrupting at least four more major industries in the next 3-5 years,” Tim Bajarin writes for Tech.pinions.
“The first industry I believe they will shake up is the TV industry,” Bajarin writes. “While Siri applied to the iPhone is a good start for Apple, I am convinced that they will apply Siri to all of their products in the future and on the TV it could have a dramatic effect on the way people interact with their televisions in the future. And since Apple can tie it to their iTunes and iCloud services as well, it will make it very difficult for competitors to catch up with them anytime soon. This will be the most disruptive thing in the television industry to happen since the introduction of color and will eventually bury the remote and put the entire TV industry on a course to use voice as the new ‘remote.'”
Bajarin writes, “The second industry Apple is poised to disrupt is the auto industry… The third industry Apple could turn upside down is the watch industry… And the fourth industry Apple could potentially impact is the appliance industry.”
