The future of technology looks golden for Appetizer Mobile founder and CEO Jorden Edelson, who earlier predicted what iPhone 6 will look like inside and out. He was not far off in his hardware predictions and now he claims to have the inside scoop on how the future software apps will be more useful on the new platform.

Edelson made a variety of predictions, not all in EE Times, some were also made on Bloomberg TV, ABC News and Fox News. (Read the story here: iPhone 6 could turn to ultrasonic pairing)

All in all, he made more hits than misses and claims the misses will still come true—just a little further down the road.

"A lot of my predictions came true," Edelson told EE Times. "As far as the size of the devices—the 4.7- and 5.5-inches—they came true—the same for the A8 processor, which came out at about 25 per cent faster, whereas I had estimated 30-to-50 per cent, so they came out on the lower end of that. I did predict how this NFC [near-field communication] and thing would work—that whole Apple Pay process of not storing your credit card information in the cloud or locally on the device. A lot of vendors are going to start using Apple Pay because of its security features and ease of installation."

However, Edelson did not hit on all eight cylinders.

"I missed on the sapphire iPhone screens, which are just on the watch, but I still predict they are going to do that on the phones too, not just yet," Edelson told EE Times.

One of the things that has Edelson most excited is the possibilities presented by iOS-8, which opened 4000 APIs (application programmer's interfaces) including access to Siri. The possibility of apps cooperating together opens the door to true artificial intelligence (AI) according to Edelson.

"The biggest change for apps is the ability to share data with each other—being able to take data that's already available in one app and use it in yours, making it more of a connected experience," Edelson told EE Times. "Siri will also be taking advantage of this new connectivity—where apps are speaking to each other—for instance Siri can find you an airline flight now, but cannot book it for you too. But with apps cooperating with each other Siri could turn into a real personal assistant who can do the kinds of things that a human assistant could do for you."
