iPhone Latest News: Apple to Transfer Veteran’s Medical Records to the iPhone
Recently, Apple has started a conversation with the Department of Veterans Affairs about using its smartphone for keeping the medical records. The Cupertino company has been planning to create a special software. It will enable the veterans to transfer their medical data to the iPhones.
The name of the software hasn’t been revealed yet. However, it is rumored to be known as Health Records. No further information about the features of the specific tool hasn’t been found yet.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the Department of Veterans Affairs is willing to digitalize the medical record of nine million veterans for portability. And it’s quite normal for the organization to reach to Apple for establishing its project, as it’s one of the world’s best tech companies of the world.
The partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs will be very significant for Apple. It will enable the Cupertino company to get a strong access to the massive US healthcare market, which is really hard to crack.
iPhone Latest News: iPhone XR Manages to Generate a Massive Sale During 11.11 Holiday
Recently, Rosenblatt, a research firm, has revealed that the iPhone XR has successfully generated massive sales during the Chinese Single’s Day, known as 11.11. In fact, it has reached the same level as the more expensive counterpart, the iPhone XS Max. Also, according to Apple Insider, it has managed to surpass the iPhone XS within just two months of being released in China.
It’s not surprising to see the iPhone XR achieving a massive success during 11.11 holiday. A number of retailers tagged the device with a whopping 15% discount. It manages to generate a massive buzz among the Chinese consumers. Many of them ended up buying the phone.
The news comes as a great refreshment for Apple. Recently, it was reported that the Cupertino had been massively frustrated with the lackluster performance of iPhone XR in the global market. The smartphone failed to generate the desired number of sales by a massive margin.
However, there is still a tough road for Apple to succeed with iPhone XR. Rosenblatt claims that the production of the device will be reduced in the coming days, which is a bad news. Right now, the research firm estimates a production of 88 million units in this quarter. It is down from the earlier estimation of 90 to 95 million units.
The number of reduced production strongly suggests about the iPhone XR’s inability to drive more consumers away from the other smartphone brands. It will be really interesting to see how Apple adjusts its marketing tactics in the coming days for the specific model.
