Apple Is Ramping Up Its Medical Tech Workforce

applelogo-1280x960What comes after the Apple Watch? The Apple Watch 2? A new fitness- and health-focused wearable? Something else entirely? That’s not yet clear, but Apple is hard at work on whatever it is, as a handful of new hires and job postings suggest.

Apple demonstrated its interest in health and medicine last spring and summer by releasing the Apple Watch, whose biometric sensors make the device an activity and heart rate tracker, and ResearchKit, a software framework that lets researchers conduct clinical trials through iPhone apps. And the company’s efforts in the wearable space are likely to continue: An Apple Watch 2 with updated features is rumored to arrive sometime this year, and, late last year, Cook hinted that Apple may have a separate health-related project in the works.
