UPDATE: The person who “Secret.ly” leaked the information, has now revealed that it was a lie, just a joke. Shocking, isn’t it? read this post for more.
The rumors that Apple will be venturing into various health related sectors seems to take on their image. We have been hearing the rumors about Apple coming up with devices like iWatch and applications like Healthbook. But all of them have just been rumors. The reality is that Apple is launching earpods that will track your health down such that it never gets out of your hands.
With the development of earpods with features and technology that will help to keep a track of health, Apple is probably diving into a world of extremely new and supposed to be rare technological genres. The very imagination of an earpod tracking the rate at which your heart is pumping the blood, the pressure of blood in your body was not there a few years ago. Earpods along with iOS 8 will be working in tandem to provide the users with the required data and information that will help to keep them healthy.
The earpods will also be coming with the iBeacon technology such that you ever lose your hands from your earpods. With addition of such technologies into the small earpods, Apple has not only compounded the acts of staying health on the easier path but also has shown that earpods are just not devices to listen to music.
Now when Apple’s iOS 8 will be launched in some time, with Health caring earpods, may be at WWDC 2014 event in San Francisco, it seems that the iWatch and the Healthbook app are not far away from reaching the users.
The source for this news is a post at secret.ly, where anonymous user revealed:
Apple’s new EarPods will have sensors in them, for heart rate & blood pressure. Also iBeacons so they don’t get lost. They will require the lightning port, it’s why the audio jack was moved to the bottom.
