Apple’s Healthcare Tech Aims Have Only Just Begun

Apple's Healthcare Tech Aims Have Only Just BegunApple Watch and HealthKit may have already profoundly impacted the healthcare space, but by no means does that mean Apple is finished innovating and releasing products in this space.

According to an admission straight from Apple CEO Tim Cook, the company may soon roll out yet another product or offering for the healthcare world

That tidbit emerged from Cook’s new interview with the U.K. Telegraph when the subject of Apple Watch’s utility in the world of healthcare was broached.

“We don’t want to put the watch through the Food and Drug Administration process. I wouldn’t mind putting something adjacent to the watch through it, but not the watch, because it would hold us back from innovating too much, the cycles are too long,” Cook said. “But you can begin to envision other things that might be adjacent to it — maybe an app, maybe something else.”
