Future for Car Phones

Car phones from the past may look silly to people of today. And it’s true that many were bulky, cumbersome, and hard to work. They were almost certainly distracting to the drivers who should have been keeping both hands on the wheel, hence many new cell phone laws. But they were also one of most coveted things you could possibly have. When everyone else had to wait for their messages until they got home, the wealthy had a way to talk to whoever they wanted whenever they wanted (some exceptions may apply.) Car phones of yore didn’t really have a chance to materialize into mainstream technology because they were quickly surpassed by the cell phone.

After the cell phone became affordable enough for everyone, it was all flip phones and candy bar phones and razor phones (and practically any other adjective you can think of.) Technology companies didn’t’ stop there though, and soon the public started seeing the predecessors to the smartphone and then finally, the iPhone. Today, we can’t seem to keep our hands off our phones no matter what we’re doing. Driving, walking, waiting — we just must know what’s new. In fact, there are more mobile phones than there are human beings on Earth! So, what does all that mean for the future of the car phone? Well, no one can predict the future, but we can certainly speculate what the top items for a car will be.

The Internet of Things

You probably know what IoT means even if you don’t know the acronyms or the jargon just yet. It’s the idea that eventually all your devices will be connected. So, when your alarm clock goes off in the morning, it may trigger your coffee pot to make your favorite cup of joe. When your beverage is done, it triggers your car to start so you don’t have to wait for it to warm up/cool off. Your phone will certainly be a part of all this, and may very well be the device that’s driving some of the action. You can already buy cars today with software apps for your phone. Eventually, that technology may become even more integrated into practically everything you do.

Wearable Technology (and More)

Your phone may become much more wearable in the future. While the Apple Watch may have only caught on with a select group of people, that doesn’t mean they got the entire idea wrong. In fact, some people speculate that the phones of the future will be directly implanted into people’s bodies. While certain generations might be horrified by the idea, there’s no telling what younger generations will demand from the technology they buy. In this case, we’ll be able to do anything and everything for our cars without even having to look for our devices. Emergency services will be alerted directly after a crash or accident occurs so more people’s lives can be saved. Phone communication in our cars will certainly never be perfect, but it stands to reason that the connectivity is only going to get stronger between the phone owner, the car, and other people who may be able to help.

Possible Threats

The more futuristic our phones get, the more we open ourselves up to hacking. Legitimate coders are usually only a few steps ahead of opportunistic hackers, and even that might be giving coders too much credit. The future of car phones could be incredibly convenient, or it could expose us to those who want to mess with our lives. Cars are just big moving computers today, and so are our phones. The more we rely on them, the more attractive they are to criminals.
