Conjunction with the use of the internet, communication technologies have become an integral part of our lives. As a consequence of that the number of addressable objects in the network environment has increased significantly, and this rate is increasing with a remainder acceleration day by day. Therefore, generating, sending, collecting, and analyzing large amounts of data requires complex, fast, and functional new structures. After the development and proliferation of the internet, the advanced technology has undoubtedly been realized thanks to the rapid spread of information. There are great advances in fields such as education, industry, defense, and health. Hence, communication technologies also require continuous development. Along with the developing technology, many technical terms have entered the literature. Some of those; The Internet of Things (IoT) is 6G and 7G. In this paper, we conducted a literature review of IoT, 6G, 7G and beyond, which are seen as the future technologies. Finally, we evaluated the contributions and difficulties of these technologies, which have entered our lives with a very limited use, to science.
