Apple Could Create Health Related Platform with iWatch, iOS 8

By Prarthito

Apple's upcoming WWDC event for the year may be a few weeks away, but rumors and leaks have already started coming out in the front about the kind of innovations we might get to see at the event. Now it seems more information is here, with all the details pointing to features related to health.

According to the latest reports related to the same, Apple could be currently working on everything that's health related and could even create a health related platform that will then arrive with the massively rumored Apple iWatch and the next version of iOS.

Apple Could Create Health Related Platform with iWatch, iOS 8


A mobile health executive recently spoke anonymously with Reuters about the new details. The executive noted that he'd been in contact with a member of the Apple iWatch team, and that Apple wants to expand its horizons beyond just wearables.

"One mobile health executive, who asked not to be named, told Reuters he recently sat down with an Apple executive from the iWatch team. He said the company has aspirations beyond wearable devices, and is considering a full health and fitness services platform modeled on its apps store," the Reuters report states.

While we are still quite some time away from getting to know all the rumored Apple products, and what might finally appear in front of us at the upcoming WWDC, the Apple-based Healthbook app has already been in news for quite some time.

The Healthbook app is also expected to arrive as one of the key features of the iOS 8 update, and Apple will likely announce it at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June. However, if the new Reuters report is to be believed, Healthbook will only serve as just the starter to a potential market that Apple has recently taken interest on.


Moreover, an App Store just meant for health and fitness-related content could also make a lot of sense since a number of business models from different other vendors are already in action.

Also, provided that the mobile health industry has every potential to make it big in the market in the next few years, it's only natural that Apple will try to tap into it as soon as possible.

But as we mentioned before, more information on this is expected to arrive at the upcoming WWDC event.
