    apple watch doesn't work without the iPhone.

    iPad came after the iPhone, was not replaced by it.

    I think you got into a bad batch this evening.

    It's not a replacement, it's a complement. For both cases, actually. Now, move along...

    He's saying in the future.

    I agree, to some extent. Many of the communication functions we use the iPhone for will be supplanted by the Apple Watch when it becomes more self-sufficient in a few generations (or longer, depending on the battery issue). In that case, if almost all of the "phone" functions are carried out by a wrist-bound computer, then what purpose does the iPhone serve?

    I believe that it is possible that, someday, the iPhone will be absorbed by the Apple Watch on the communication end and the iPad on the computing end. But, if that happens, it is still a very long ways off. And if that actually happens, the products will be significantly different than what we have today.

    Get back to me when people want to consume entertainment on their watch. I can't wait to watch movies on it. Few people will ever be okay with talking to their watch in public, or wearing a Bluetooth headset.

    iPhone will be around for a very long time, don't worry.
