“On January 2, 2012, I wrote a piece for Time Magazine titled ‘Four Industries Apple Can Disrupt in the Near Future,'” Tim Bajarin writes for Tech.pinions. “In it, I suggested Apple will someday impact the Auto, Watch, TV and Appliances industries. I encourage you to read it to see how close my predictions were three years back.”
“As I look at Apple today and try and peer into its future, I believe they are going to disrupt three other industries very soon. The first one is healthcare,” Bajarin writes. “I believe Apple’s vision for changing the healthcare market is actually an imperative given to the current leadership by Steve Jobs. Sources have told me that, when Jobs got sick in the early 2000s, he was dismayed by the disjointed nature of the healthcare system… Apple is now on a mission to deliver Jobs’ vision for the market and it will be the last major contribution to Apple’s future that Steve Jobs left us.”
“Another industry Apple is disrupting is the design world,” Bajarin writes. “Apple is even having a disruptive impact on construction and building codes… It appears Apple’s new campus will be studied by architects, builders and building designers and possibly be disruptive to this industry as well.”
