Apple wants to build a custom health chip for processing biometric data : gadgets


We don’t know if Apple is simply looking to integrate better health tracking and monitoring features or sensors into its existing chip sets for the iPhone or Apple Watch, or if it’s interested in developing a custom chip that would work in tandem with other hardware components.

Wouldn’t “both” be the logical answer to this? I can’t see them doing one and not the other. Hoping eventually it’ll be able to test other things other than heart-rate (body temp, blood sugar, state of circadian rhythm etc.) and I might actually get one..
