Apple seems to have hit a wall with its’ Apple Watch. Excitement about continuing to create apps for the SmartWatch has died down exponentially.
Tim Anglade, vice president of mobile database Realm stated that consumers aren’t using the Apple Watch as much as the company thought it would. Typically 100,000 app developers make use of Realm’s data source in applications utilized by concerning 1 billion people, Anglade says. This gives Realm a distinct vantage point in seeing which mobile devices capture mobile programmers’ passion and also which have not. Apple Watch is simply not doing it for developers. Apple’s tvOS is doing a lot better. The Apple TV 4th Generation went on sale in the last quarter of 2015 and was the first in its line to include Apple’s App Store. While there was quite the rush to develop apps when the mobile watch came onto the scene, now developers have cooled their coding engines a bit for 2 main reasons.
- The Apple Watch is seen as a companion to the iPhone and not a stand-alone device.
- There is as of yet no real profit in developing apps for the SmartWatch.
In a previous post, we mentioned the fact that Industry insiders rushed to predict that the Apple Watch would account for a 4% increase in Apple profits. With sales waning those predictions may have been wrong. There are rumblings that Apple will reveal a brand-new variation of Watch at WWDC, the conference that starts June 13.
