Your iPhone might become a hub for your medical records

Our iPhones already do a lot to keep us healthy, tracking our activity, sleep, mindfulness, and nutrition in the Health app. But according to a new report, Apple is working with hospitals and medical industry groups to bring your full medical profile to your phone, giving you full access to your digital medical chart.

CNBC is reporting that “a secretive team with Apple’s growing health unit” is working to bring clinical medical data to your iPhone. The goal is to make doctor’s visits, lab results, prescriptions, and even allergy lists available right your phone so you can access them whenever you need them.

News you can lose: The last name in Apple analysis

The big WWDC keynote was more than a week ago but we’re just now getting the most definitive analysis on it, brought to you by an analyst with his finger on the pulse of…

No, just kidding, it’s Rob Enderle.

“Hearing Crickets at Apple’s WWDC and a Pin Drop in the Senate.” (Tip o’ the antlers to Shawn King.)

Apple is becoming more and more like a typical tech firm—that is, long on technology and short on magic.

Hey. Hey, Rob. Rob. Hey.


Magic isn’t real.

People pay this guy for technology advice and he thinks magic is real. Unbelievable.

The big unanswered questions from Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference

And now, we wait. Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference is over, and with all the announcements comes a broad understanding about where Apple is taking iOS and macOS over the next year. But there are still a few lingering questions that Apple didn’t, or couldn’t, address at WWDC.

What don’t we know about HomePod?

We’ve got six months until HomePod arrives, and plenty of questions to ponder in the meantime. Apple’s connected home speaker processes audio to route different parts of the music to its different tweeters, but how does it learn about the acoustics of the room it’s in? Are its audio settings adjustable, either by app or via Siri?

MacBook Pro vs. MacBook vs. MacBook Air: Which should you buy?

Apple released new Mac laptops at its recent Worldwide Developers Conference and you’d be right in thinking that this is a really good time to buy one. So you head over to your local Apple store, or you peruse the pages of Apple’s website, and you find yourself with money to spend but no idea on which MacBook to buy.

Don’t worry! That’s why we’re here. In this guide, we’ll go over Apple’s current MacBook lineup, point out their differences and similarities, and provide you with the information you need to pick the right MacBook for you.

The affordable choice: MacBook Air

Longtime Mac users may remember when the MacBook Air made its debut nine years ago as Apple’s entry into the ultra-portable laptop market. But times have changed, and starting in 2015, the MacBook was repositioned as Apple’s affordable laptop.

10.5-inch iPad Pro first impressions: If it's not broke, fix it anyway?

Apple started shipping the new iPad Pros this week, and we have a lot of questions about the 10.5-inch model. Is it better than previous iPad Pros? Will it replace my MacBook? Did it really need an update? I’ve been taking one for a test drive over the past few days, and here are some of my initial impressions.

Apple has updated the specs and capabilities to be identical for both the 10.5-inch iPad Pro and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The only real difference between the two models is their size, but these particular impressions are based on using the smaller iPad Pro model. (Stay tuned for my full review early next week.)
