Cerrudo's hardware was backpack-size, not smartphone-size, like Aiden's in "Watch Dogs." McGeorge said Aiden would need more than one backpack.
You could always use a smartphone to remotely control larger hardware located elsewhere.

It will be interesting when Apple centralizes power related to in-car entertainment, home and car security. It will become a large target; likely a bigger target than Microsoft ever was.

Microsoft platforms are used to collect and manage data. But if Apple starts creating platforms and devices to manage physical things, It's not difficult to imagine it will attract much more attention of hackers because of the typical, and wealthier demographics of the usual Apple customer.
