Apple Unveils New iPhone 6 and iWatch

Apple has unveiled its latest creations including a wallet technology – ApplePay, the Apple Watch and the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.


The devices were unveiled on Tuesday morning including the much anticipated health kit. Mayo Clinic doctors helped Apple develop new programs in healthcare called Health and HealthKit.

iPhone’s iOS 8 includes a motion sensor which tracks a persons steps, distance and elevation. The information is stored in the Health app which will sync into HealthKit. The program stores vitals into an electronic file which can be used by doctors or family to access. The app also syncs with other existing fitness apps like MyFitness Pal and Nike+.

Patients can take that on the Healthkit information on their iDevices or Android which canalso be transferred to any part of the world. The information will be put in a electronic medical record.

Considering the recent data breaches including the recent iCloud scandal, Apple says that security was a top priority to prevent leaking the sensitive information when creating the program. HealthKit educates users about their privacy rights and the best way to protect their information.

Users have screens to view their HIPPA authorizations and their privacy. Once the information reaches iPhone users, it is their responsibility like an x-ray file would or a paper lab result would be. The device helps doctors have easy access to medical records leading them into making heather choices.

The new iPhones will be available for sale in stores from Sept. 19. The HealthKit program has only on iOS version with developers still working on Android version. The iPhone6 unlocked version is priced at $649 (Rs 39,500) while iPhone6 Plus unlocked will be priced at $749 (Rs 45,600).
