This year has brought about several interesting new things in the way of technology. Some of the biggest additions to the world are the new set of iPhones that Apple released toward the end of the year. Both the iPhone 8 and iPhone X blew up in the media, just as Apple had planned. The release of these new iPhone models surpassed many things in the media surrounding tech for the entire year. 2017 had several interesting searches online throughout the year, but the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X were the 2nd and 3rd most searched names on various search engines and social media this year.
These statistics weren’t that surprising considering how much of a hit the new iPhone models were with the millions of Apple lovers out there. Since the iPhone X was the company’s ten year anniversary, the new model seemingly broke all expectations, and Apple users everywhere went crazy with the release. At the same time, the new iOS was released for users, which put Apple in the headlines for months.
Other than the fabulous new iPhone models, including the 8 Plus, there were a few other things in the top searches for 2017. Hurricane Irma, Matt Lauer, and Meghan Markle were all additional searches for the year for various reasons. However, when it comes to tech news, these searches were big news for the Apple company and technology lovers everywhere.
When you consider what this means for the year’s events, it means that even above the major hurricanes, the total solar eclipse, and more, the iPhone made its mark on the world as the top items, second only to Hurricane Irma, as the most searched items in the world. This trending topic means that social media and more knew that the newest iPhone additions were helpful to the sale of the iPhone. It got people everywhere talking.
With 2018 quickly approaching, there is no telling which technology or devices will be in the top spots at the start of the year. Only time will tell whether a tablet, smartphone, or computer will be in the top of the search engine lists for the year. Other brands might be in the works for making a device that rattles the world, but at this time, the technology world is silent. Apple made their mark this year, who will it be next? It is possible that we are going to have to wait and see.
