It’s pretty remarkable that, 10 times after the iPhone first debuted, that it’s still recognizably an iPhone.
Put an iPhone 7 on the table next to an original iPhone, and, while it would be clear that one is more advanced and sophisticated than the other, you can easily view they share the same DNA. Apps, multi-touch, the residence button the overall blueprint and the scaffold it allows has been very consistent through the decade of its existence.

That’s why, when Mashable ‘s Tech Team took it upon themselves to suspect what the iPhone of 2020 would look like, we aimed up with something that while clearly a stair beyond the smartphones of today is unmistakably an iPhone. But an iPhone with an edge-to-edge screen , no residence button, a more AI-driven edition of iOS, and no ports whatsoever.
After exposing our vision, we invited a panel of experts to dissect it to tell us what we got right and what we got wrong on our MashTalk podcast. iMore Managing Editor Serenity Caldwell, Loup Ventures Managing Partner Gene Munster, and USA Today Tech Columnist Ed Baig join Mashable ‘s Pete Pachal, Raymond Wong, Lance Ulanoff, and Sam Sheffer in a spirited discourse about the future of the iPhone.
