Many commercial services will increasingly happen within other services or through notifications to the lockscreen. Watch out for travel bots like Crosby that read your email or group messaging conversations and send you recommendations for where to eat, what to do and when to leave for the airport.

One of the key questions for 2017 is whether Apple will join the VR platform wars with its own headset and app store or head in a different direction.
