Apple is one of the most successful companies in the world both financially and in their quality products. Apple produces electronics such as personal computers, software, and portable music players/Cellphones known as the IPhone and IPod. I chose this company because I myself own a good amount of Apple products as well as my friends and family. Apple has a bright future ahead. They will most likely continue on the series of IPhones and IPads that have made great success. The IPhone 10 years from now will be impressively thin with a large screen. The new technology may consist of holograms. The technology of holograms already exists. A holographic laser keyboard that is touch sensitive has already been created in the technology world.

The plans for a hologram for the iPhone is already being investigated and considered by Apple. Mobile devices and software updates are one of the many things that will improve over the years. The iPhone could end up being waterproof in the future. The top companies in this industry Hewlett-Packard, IBM, and Dell. Two companies within the industry are Apple and Dell.
