Interesting article.
Mobile apps are nowhere near to saturation and has too much scope for innovations. As rightly mentioned in the article that Security, IoT, AR, VR, AI and cloud based apps are in focus for 2017 and we will see almost everyone considering these trends seriously.

Apart from this, big data is one thing that will be in focus. Programmers are likely to be more careful about maintaining just the right balance between user-friendly interfaces and reliability, improved functionality in big data applications. It won’t be long before we start seeing cutting-edge mobile app development that combine IoT, cloud connectivity, and big data processing features.

There are more 3-4 trends that I see missing. Know them here http://www.cygnet-infotech.com/blog/mobile-app-development-trends-to-watch-out-for-in-2017
