Tim Cook says Apple's long-term health 'has never looked better'

Earlier this week, at the Consumer Electronics Show, Apple's software was a key component of product announcements made by other manufacturers, illustrating the company's willingness to open its garden walls to make its services more widely available.

Cook's commentary of new services launch in 2019 is inline with expectations and could come from a relaunch of the digital magazine service Texture which Apple bought in 2018. "There will be more things coming", he said.

Cook seems to be most enthusiastic about Apple's health-related efforts, which have gotten far more serious with last year's launch of ECG and irregular heart rhythm notifications features for the Apple Watch. The primary case between the two, in which Apple has accused Qualcomm of engaging in illegal patent activity to maintain market dominance, is due to go to trial in April. He stated that with products like the Apple Watch, ResaearchKit and CareKit Apple was "democratizing" healthcare.


It claimed that for 2018 Apple achieved net sales of $265.6 billion and operating income of $70.9 billion, each representing a year-over-year increase of 16 percent, and exceeding the 2018 maximum annual cash incentive program goals for both of those performance measures. According to the federal government, $3.5 trillion was spent on healthcare in the United States in 2017.

Qualcomm has responded to comments made by Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook in an interview, in which he said there had been no recent settlement talks between the iPhone maker and chip supplier in their global legal battle, calling Cook's remarks "misleading".

Apple has also slowly brought its Apple Watch device into the medical world. It can also alert users if it looks like they have an irregular heartbeat. He wants to see this portion of Apple double in revenue by the end of 2020. Whatever Apple is planning for its health teams, it's going to be big. Just this Morning he had been to a attractive Moment in front of a year.
