Today Apple shared a new report that offers a snapshot of the ways Apple products are empowering people to be at the center of their health, and acting as an intelligent guardian for their health and safety. Users, developers, medical institutions, and health organizations around the world are using Apple devices, features, and APIs to break down barriers between people and their health information, all while keeping privacy in mind.
Apple’s efforts to advance health primarily fall into two categories, which are detailed in two corresponding sections of the report. The first section describes Apple’s focus on personal health and fitness features on Apple Watch and iPhone that offer actionable, science-based insights and help protect users’ health and safety where you can track all your healthy factors such as if using special medication, testosterone enhancer or supplements that require daily tracking, the ingest of water, exercise routines and timing and more. The second section shares Apple’s work with the medical community to support research and care. Both sections — along with an Extensions and Spotlights section at the report’s end — include a variety of examples of third-party developers, health institutions, and organizations innovating with Apple technology.The Securities and Exchange Commission will be examining Apple Inc’s disclosures on Steve Jobs’ health issues, in order to determine if the company’s investors were misled or not, according to a person close to this matter. That doesn’t necessarily mean that Apple did something wrong, but the investigation will still take place.



Months ago Jobs claimed that his health problems were caused by an easily treatable hormonal imbalance, but his statement changed last week, as the issues were deemed “more complex” and Apple’s main man had to take a medical leave of 6 six months.

Jobs’ health has a great impact on stocks and the investors’ attitude towards Apple, so that’s probably the reason why SEC is trying to determine whether or not the investors were misled.

After all, Steve Jobs IS Apple…
