Apple Confirms ECG Functionality is Coming to Canada ‘as Quickly as Possible’


This post is by from MacRumors: Mac News and Rumors - Front Page


Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




Apple today told The Canadian Press that it is aiming to bring ECG functionality to Apple Watch Series 4 devices in Canada “as quickly as possible.”

The news comes after Health Canada this month approved the ECG app and irregular heart rhythm notifications on the Apple Watch Series 4, clearing the way for the features to be released in the country.



Health Canada classified the Apple Watch Series 4 as a Class II medical device, which places it in the “low-to-medium risk” category alongside other products like contact lenses.

Apple launched the ECG app in the United States in December as part of watchOS 5.1.2. It expanded to 19 European countries and Hong Kong in March 2019, and five additional European countries last week.

The ECG app is designed to allow Apple Watch Series 4 readers to place a finger on the Digital Crown to get

Angela Ahrendts on Apple Retail Criticism: ‘I Don’t Read Any of it, and None of it is Based on Fact’

Former Apple retail chief Angela Ahrendts today did an interview with Bloomberg, where she spoke about her time at Apple.

The opportunity to take the Apple Store experience “to the next level” and have a greater impact on surrounding communities was one of the reasons why Ahrendts joined Apple. She also cited programs like Today at Apple, designed to “help reskill the current generation,” as factors in her decision to work for the Cupertino company.

Ahrendts said that looking back at her tenure, the redesign introduced at Apple retail stores around the world was one of her major successes, as were the Today at Apple classes.

Just as I was saying, I think that we were able to redesign the stores, and there are incredible flagships in the pipeline for the next four years. But they’re not even stores, we call them town squares or gathering places because the

Review: 23.7-inch LG UltraFine Display – faster charging, and two Thunderbolt 3 ports [Video]

After discontinuing the smaller 21.5-inch UltraFine Display, LG has released a new larger 24-inch UltraFine-labeled monitor in its place at the same $699 price point. If the launch of the new display flew under your radar, that’s probably because much of the spotlight was centered on Apple’s new 2019 MacBook Pro models, which launched alongside LG’s new display.

This new UltraFine Display is like a combination of the UltraFine 5K and the older UltraFine 4K Display, and for the most part that’s an okay thing. The biggest feature is the inclusion of not just one, but two Thunderbolt 3 ports. That’s an improvement over LG’s previous Apple-centric displays, as you’ll see in our hands-on video review. more…

OnePlus earlier this month unveiled its new flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 7 Pro, which offers multiple attractive and unique features along with an affordable price tag.

MacRumors videographer Dan Barbera checked out the OnePlus 7 Pro when it first launched, but has spent some more time with it for an in-depth comparison that’s been shared on our YouTube channel.

The OnePlus 7 Pro is priced starting at $669, making it significantly cheaper than the iPhone XS Max, which is priced starting at $1,099. Though cheaper, the OnePlus 7 Pro doesn’t sacrifice many features.

It has a 6.67-inch OLED display that’s edge to edge with no bezels aside from a small chin at the bottom. Unlike the iPhone, there’s no notch and no cutout for the front-facing camera, and that’s because OnePlus has designed a pop out front camera that

What Percent of People Prefer Mac Over PC?

Apple Windows

You may think this is a trick question because most people prefer PC over Mac, right? Well, more people may use PCs, but it doesn’t necessarily mean they are preferred. For the sake of argument (and this article), when I say “people,” I am referring to college students. And though they may sometimes act like party animals, they are still, in fact, people.

The Research

In a new study of over 2,200 college students released by Jamf this week, 71% either have a Mac or wish they did. By any calculation, that is a huge preference over the alternative. What makes the number look even more unbalanced is when you consider the other side of the equation: only 29% would choose PC over Mac. To break the numbers down further:

• 40% use Mac
• 31% use PC but prefer Mac
• 29% use and prefer PC

Now consider this…

Apple Acquired Tueo Health, a Startup Developing an Asthma Monitoring App


This post is by from MacRumors: Mac News and Rumors - Front Page


Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




Apple in 2018 acquired Tueo Health, a startup working on an app to help parents monitor asthma symptoms in sleeping children, reports CNBC.

Tueo’s CEO and COO, Brownwyn Harris and Anura Patil, changed their employers from Tueo to Apple in late 2018, which is perhaps when the acquisition was completed.



An Apple spokesperson declined to comment to CNBC on the acquisition, and it’s not known how much Apple paid for the company. It’s possible, given the lack of comment from Apple and the absence of the company’s standard statement related to acquisitions, that it was an acquihire rather than a traditional acquisition.

Tueo had been working on a mobile app that was designed to pair with commercial breathing sensors to manage asthma symptoms in children. The app was meant to send alerts to parents if a child’s breathing changed over the night.

We use commercially available sensors to monitor asthmatic
