Given its lack of entry-level models (and general lack of interest in them) I suspect Apple will settle out below Samsung and somewhere on par with one of the strong China OEMs, maybe even Lenovo, so somewhere between #2-5. Just a hunch.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
