iOS 17 will mean the Arrival of the Health application on iPad as well as other new functions including control of emotions and visual health.

Apple wants to continue advancing in the monitoring of the health and well-being of its users through its devices, and for this it is going to include the Health application on the iPad with iPadOS 17. Also wants to include new functionalities such as the monitoring of emotions and the control of visual conditions. The thing will not stop here, because next year there will be an even greater advance with the inclusion of a Health service based on Artificial Intelligence. Apple wants to get to know a user’s mood by how she talks.

The hope is that an iPad app will boost the popularity of the Health app in healthcare settings, where tablets have already made inroads. The app is central to the company’s health efforts, serving as a repository for exercise data collected by the Apple Watch and external health records. It also serves as a portal for users to share information with their doctors.

Tools for tracking emotions and controlling vision disturbances, such as myopia, will be added to the health app this year. The initial version of the emotion tracker will allow users to record their mood, answer questions about their day, and compare results over time. But in the future, Apple hopes the iPhone can use algorithms to determine a user’s mood through how they speak, what words they type and other data collected from their devices.

Looking further ahead, Apple is working on an application called Quartz that will be based on artificial intelligence and that will serve to improve the health and well-being of its users. the goal is to keep users motivated to exercise, improve eating habits, and help them sleep better. The platform will use the combination of artificial intelligence with data collected by the Apple Watch to offer users suggestions on how to improve their health and well-being. This latest functionality is not expected with the debut of iOs 17, but will be incorporated as early as 2024.
