The rapid proliferation of smart devices and their integration into the Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to revolutionize various facets of modern life and this research investigates "the role of smart devices in IoT", focusing on the perceptions and preferences of graduate students aged 21 to 35 years from Iraq University Through a mixed-methods approach, combining quantitative surveys and qualitative insights from literature review, the study explores students' attitudes toward smart devices, their impact on daily life, and concerns related to data security and environmental sustainability. The findings reveal a predominantly positive outlook toward smart devices, coupled with apprehensions about data security. Furthermore, this study offers recommendations for enhancing digital literacy, promoting eco-friendly technology, and addressing the user concerns, as it contributes to a deeper understanding of the evolving landscape of the smart devices in the context of IoT and offering valuable insights for educators, policymakers, and technology developers.
