The present trend that we are living in is the trend of technology and it is not seeming to stop but will grow more and more. We have witnessed numerous mobile technology trends already. As per The Mobile Economy Report 2022, by GSMA, there are currently more than 5.3 billion unique mobile users globally, which is predicted to reach 5.7 billion by 2025. So, by this noteworthy data, we can assume that the mobile technology trend will also grow like never before.
What we are going to do here today is, we will be exploring such top 5 mobile technology trends that we would see growing or coming in 2023, based on our understanding and observation.
So, continue your reading ahead and find out those 5 mobile technology trends that are going to come in the year 2023.
#1. Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality
With the use of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality, applications provide great chances by putting digital objects into the real-world environment and enhancing the experiences of the users. The number of applications that are incorporating AR and VR technologies is rapidly growing. Earlier, these technologies were usually used in gaming software or applications, take Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (AKA: GTA Vice City or Vice City) 6 and Pokémon Go, for example. But nowadays, these technologies are used for a variety of purposes such as education, user manual, interior design, navigation, and object measurement. And mobile companies are also not behind in adopting these technologies, producing AR-enabled mobile phones.
#2. Mobile Transaction
Mobile transactions are way too popular nowadays, hundreds of thousands of people are using this technology, every day. Almost every time they are purchasing anything. They are the fastest developing market in the globe. And as we all know that nowadays people prefer shopping online from their mobile phones, so there is no doubt that as a consequence of an ever-increasing mobile shopping trend, e-payment platforms or options will also grow alongside.
According to a report by BusinessofApps, mobile payment applications worldwide have witnessed a momentous increase in their user base of more than 2 billion in the year 2021, which we think is probably due to the hit of the COVID-19 pandemic that forced people to minimize their cash transaction as much as possible. And it means that mobile transactions will continue to reach new heights in 2023 and beyond.
#3. 5G Era
I know we all are becoming familiar with this one – 5G technology. And the era of 5G is not far at all, it has already waved us a ‘hi’ and making its rapid progress in the world as the corporates are rapidly adopting 5G connectivity. It is not only progressing but revolutionizing the world of app development as well. Its implementations are also happening at a fast pace. And because of the speed of 5G connectivity, which provides enhanced wireless connectivity, the execution of advanced technologies such as IoT (Internet of Things, which we will be discussing ahead), Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality that we have already discussed ahead, and cloud-computing (we will discuss this as well) are becoming possible.
#4. Mobile IoT Apps
As I said above that we will be discussing it, so I will be elaborating on it here.
The IoT, which stands for or is the short form of the Internet of Things, is sort of omnipresent these days. You will find them everywhere and in every sector. No matter if that sector is healthcare, manufacturing, transportation, or agriculture. And due to this, they are also getting a boost in their development. IoT applications are bridging the between connected phones and humans.
A few examples of IoT are wearables, appliances of smart homes, traffic sensors, etc. These technologies are in heavy use, especially nowadays. And it seems to be growing even more, gradually.
#5. Mobile Applications That are Based on Cloud
Cloud-based mobile applications are also in trend nowadays because it provides many conveniences to the users as it does not affect the internal storage of the users’ device. So the applications that are integrating with AI, machine learning, IoT, etc. are not needed to be GB (gigabyte) sized because cloud computing solves this through their remote servers providing sufficient storage space to store and process the data. Cloud computing also comes with a variety of features such as securely functioning across several devices, saving money on hosting, comes with better loading power, boosting user retention, etc.
So these were the top 5 mobile technology trends to watch out for in 2023, hoping for this article to be helpful and informative for you.
