As each year passes, Apple pushes the limits of technology and innovation to deliver consumers cutting-edge technology that many of us have only ever dreamed of. With the company announcing new features coming to iPhones at this morning's keynote event, social media is nervous that the company might eventually develop software that could signal the end of humanity.
In The Terminator, the artificial intelligence system Skynet was developed by humans and ultimately ignited a war between man and machine. As Apple announces a variety of advancements that will be incorporated into our iPhones, we can't help but wonder how long it will be before the technology realizes it could destroy us easily, which has much of social media concerned.
