This is the stunning iPhone 12 of our dreams, but it’s too good to be true

  This is the stunning iPhone 12 of our dreams, but it’s too good to be true Apple's new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max were just released a couple of weeks ago, so isn't it far too soon to be talking about next year's iPhone 12? Well, if you're really asking yourself that question then you don't know anything at all about how the rumor mill works. Apple obviously starts working with its supply chain partners on future iPhone models more than a year before they're finally released. And if Apple is working on something with its supply chain partners, then you can bet that the world’s top Apple insider knows about it.

Starting Thursday, you can download the Research app in the App Store and see if you are eligible to participate in the first three long-term medical studies. Apple announced the app in September.

There’s a women's health study conducted in partnership with Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the NIH’s National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) with the goal of advancing understanding of menstrual cycles and how they relate to various health conditions: polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), infertility, osteoporosis, menopausal transition.

The world’s most accurate Apple insider just leaked iPhone SE 2 details and release timing

  The world’s most accurate Apple insider just leaked iPhone SE 2 details and release timing Apple just unveiled three new iPhones that are selling very well according to reports, and there's plenty of evidence to back up that claim — several models were sold out almost immediately after preorders began. But that doesn’t mean Apple is done launching new iPhones. A well-known insider says the company will unveil an iPhone SE replacement in the first quarter of 2020 that will feature a design like the old iPhone 8, but it'll have specs onThe best thing about the iPhone 11 series is that just like last year’s iPhone XS and XR phones, all three new handsets share almost the same specs. Most importantly, we’re looking at Apple’s powerful, more efficient A13 chip that has no rival in the business.

A second study is focused on the heart and movement and is  designed to examine the factors that impact cardiovascular health and potentially cause a person’s mobility and overall well-being to deteriorate.

This study, which requires an iPhone 6s or later and an Apple Watch (any model), can help signal early warning signs of atrial fibrillation (AFib), heart disease or declining mobility. Apple is partnering with Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston and the American Heart Association. The study will likely last at least five years.

Lastly, Apple is teaming with the University of Michigan on a hearing study that will leverage headphone usage and environmental sound exposure data through the iPhone and the Noise app on an Apple Watch (Series 4 and Series 5) to explore how both can impact a person’s ability to hear over time.

Apple's second-gen SE will resemble iPhone 8: report

  Apple's second-gen SE will resemble iPhone 8: report Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that Apple's second-generation iPhone SE -- donning the same 4.7-inch screen as the iPhone 8 -- will launch during the first quarter of 2020. In a note viewed by CNBC on Thursday, the notable and highly reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reportedly predicted that the iPhone SE2 will launch in early 2020 with an iPhone 8-like form and the same processor found in the iPhone 11 series. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Despite retaining the design -- and 4.

Apple ’s launch of the Research app coincides with the publication of results from the Apple Heart Study conducted by Stanford Medicine It’s now a standard feature on the Apple Watch and many people have reported receiving the alert, going to the doctor for "I am involved in another study that does not require an iPhone or any Apple platform for data transmission.” The Apple Hearing Study.

Researchers at Stanford Medicine, who studied whether an app on the Apple Watch could detect an irregular heartbeat condition, were able to enroll Through the study’s app , they may also choose to automatically share fitness, heart rate and other quantitative data gathered by their iPhones or Apple

Participants will be randomly assigned to two groups to assess if Health app notifications, when loud sounds are detected, can motivate users to modify their listening behaviors. Apple says it will share data from the study with the World Health Organization to raise awareness around safe listening practices.

Users will corroborate the data by answering qualitative survey questions -- did you attend a concert, say, or get a hearing aid? -- and take baseline tests to determine where their hearing levels are at as a starting point. Participants will also be able to take hearing tests, using headphones, through the app.

Apple claims your privacy will be protected

Even as scrutiny of big tech grows in Washington and statehouses around the country, the increasingly data-hungry industry is still in hot pursuit of your personal information.

The iPhone 11 is shaping up to be Apple’s most popular upgrade option in years

  The iPhone 11 is shaping up to be Apple’s most popular upgrade option in years After about two years of relatively stagnant iPhone sales, there's reason to believe that Apple might see some sales growth thanks to the popularity of the company's new iPhone 11 lineup. And though we won't know for sure -- thanks to Apple's recent decision to no longer disclose quarterly iPhone sales -- there's mounting evidence that consumers are really flocking to the iPhone 11. According to a new research report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP), Apple’s iPhone 11 models — a lineup which includes the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max — accounted for 20% of all new iPhone sales during the September quarter.

When Apple launched ResearchKit, the company made it clear it was not collecting medical and research data from study participants. The Mole Mapper app uses the iPhone 's camera to keep track of moles on the skin. The apps are considered research projects, so there shouldn’t be any

Arguably nothing other than financial information is more sensitive than a person's medical history. Medical institutions have long had safeguards for patient privacy when storing medical information, but new questions are being raised about how tech companies treat medical information after the mishandling of people's information in other areas.

It was revealed earlier this week by the Wall Street Journal that Google is working with the Ascension health-care system on an initiative to collect and analyze personal health records of millions of people in 21 states. The initiative, known as Project Nightingale, is now under investigation by The Office for Civil Rights in the Department of Health and Human Services, the Journal reported.

In a blog post, Google pledged that patient data could not and would not be combined with data the company collects on consumers.

Earlier this month, Google said it planned to buy Fitbit, which has stockpiled mountains of information on people's health, for $2.1 billion.

Amazon and Microsoft also have designs on the healthcare industry.

Apple might release new Smart Battery Cases to make iPhone 11 battery life even better

  Apple might release new Smart Battery Cases to make iPhone 11 battery life even better A photo of one was found in iOS 13.2The newest iPhones already have pretty solid battery life, largely because the phones are thicker so they can house larger batteries. A new Smart Battery Case would, in theory, make the devices’ battery life even better.

ResearchKit helps medical researchers gather robust data for studies. ResearchKit makes it easy for you to sign up for and participate in a study by using the iPhone that’s already in your pocket.

You can get information about an order you placed on the Apple Online Store through the Order If you have a hearing or vision impairment, call (877) You can also find a list of serial numbers associated with your Apple ID and get information about using Find My iPhone for iPhone , iPad

Apple says data collected through the Research app will be encrypted on the iPhone and that it does not have access to it. It's up to you whether you feel comfortable sharing the data. You can also leave a study at any time.

Inside the Research app, you can read about the requirements for each study, which includes filling out a profile with your date of birth, contact information, and other information. You’ll also have to sign consent forms.

With your permission, Apple’s academic or medical partners may reach out directly if a concerning medical issue surfaces. Apple would still not have access to identifiable data. Apple says its partners can only use study data to support their research and that data will not be sold.

In March, Apple reported the results of an eight-month study conducted with Stanford Medicine, in which 400,000 people wearing an Apple Watch passively helped researchers evaluate irregular rhythm notifications.

Apple will soon let you tack an iPhone onto your monthly Apple Card bill .
You’ll also get 3 percent cash backApple already offers a number of ways to finance the cost of the iPhone, such as the iPhone Upgrade Program, and it seems like only the “manage payments in the Wallet app” portion is truly new. Apple already offers Apple Card holders 3 percent cash back when they make purchases at its stores, and lets you pay for phones in 24 installments while getting the cash back if you make those payments — on time — with an Apple Card.
