Apple has big plans for health in 2019 - Engadget

Apple chief Tim Cook promised to launch more services this year, including healthcare-related ones.

  Apple has definitely been ramping up its health and wellness efforts in recent years.

  In addition to releasing ResearchKit and CareKit, it also designed the Apple Watch Series 4 with a built-in electrocardiogram, giving it the power to potentially save lives by detecting heart issues such as irregular heartbeats.

  Aside from talking about Apple's healthcare-related ambitions, Cook also slammed Qualcomm in the interview.

  Most recently, Qualcomm paid $1.5 billion for security bonds to ensure Apple can't sell its older iPhones in Germany.

  According to reports last year, the chipmaker hired controversial PR firm Definers to spread damaging stories about Apple.
