As the new popular thing of people no longer using smart phones, going back to traditional phones and text/SMS/Calls continues to grow, and people using mobile apps less and less becomes the new popular thing at the moment, China as mentioned by many have been hit:
Boom. That is a heavy hit. Old school brick phones making a comeback – have seen more and more people using non-smart phones and app track and tracing a lot recently in many nations. It is all happening now.
That is from the South Morning Chinese Morning Post too, above, let that sink in.
As more Chinese government personnel continue to be sent home to China from nations around the world, and their citizens face new issues trying to travel and spread the Covid virus worldwide (as it started in their nation and still no genesis statement on Wuhan yet) – more of this will likely continue in 2023.
App developers will continue to see issues with reduction in use of smart phones in 2023 – all due to China and the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The open web however will grow likely substantially, maybe PWA apps will flourish in 2023 as traditional smart phone apps continue to see issues as will smart phones themselves.
