Advanced health-tracking for mHealth app owners
One of the highlights of the new iOS 16 feature release is good news for mHealth app publishers. These apps include tracking your heartbeat, calorie usage, step, run, and cross-trainer activities all to help people live a healthier lifestyle.
The new iOS 16 will include new advanced health-tracking features making for more sophisticated apps in the future.
iOS already enables sharing health information with family members, caregivers, and healthcare providers, but with iOS 16 you can expect a tighter integration and that is especially beneficial for the doctor/patient relationship.
The latest smartwatches will be able to measure body temperature. Blood pressure and blood sugar are coming soon as well, but the last kinks are ironed out by Apple, and likely won’t be ready by launch. We expect they are going to be added in a later iOS 16.x release.
With the detailed health monitoring system, app developers will be able to integrate sharing of more precise information to provide doctors a technologically advanced platform for better diagnosis and treatment.
Using the high-tech sensors built into the Apple Watch, enables app owners to start building the next generation of healthcare apps very soon.
