Doctors around the world are using iPhone to transform the way we think about health. Apps created with ResearchKit are already producing medical insights and discoveries at a pace and scale never seen before. That success has inspired us to widen the scope from medical research to personal care with the introduction of CareKit — a framework for developers to build apps that let you manage your own well-being on a daily basis.
As I’ve grown older, I’ve realized that these types of announcements are far more important than the mass market products. Phones and tablets are short-lived, but the discoveries that come from initiatives like ResearchKit and CareKit have major impacts on people’s lives. I couldn’t be happier about Apple working on this.
