Some AirPos that listen to the heartbeat: Lake wants to go one step further in biometrics and health control

It is very big. Apple’s future AirPos under its arms could bring about that great change that marks the future of the entire industry. There are those new technologies that combine technology with health. And the information comes from none other than Mark Gurman: in his latest message he confirmed that Apple has real intentions to “update AirPods to become a health device in the coming year”.

A health tool. That is, to incorporate biometric and auditory functions of great health: measure beats by minute, body temperature, hearing ability, sweat levels and other values. And we can think of hundreds of applications and uses that organize sound intensity to match songs or even to develop affiliate recommendations.

AirPods may be your next medical gadget

Can an Apple device save life? He has several times. A dog caught in the middle of a flood, thanks to the AirTag site. Or of three people seriously injured after a car accident: Apple Watch Series 8 has brought back its SOS system and “it seems you have an accident” is immediately alerted to the emergency services.

News of this kind went round the world. But beyond the spectacularity of these things, it is important to observe the determination with which Apple works to go beyond the usual biometrics. There are many monitors that monitor heart rate, calorie burn, or count steps, but few that turn all that data collection into a useful, true health plan. Beyond what time it is to get up, the Health app adds dozens of articles and advice on healthy living.

And this seems to be a trend that AirPos can follow in the future. Tim Cook himself has already dropped it on occasion, as has CEO Kevin Lynch, as he explained in an interview for TechCrunch:

One place to look for even more potential in terms of future health capability lies in sensor fusion. The stability of the walk results not only from the iPhone or Apple Watch acting independently, but what is possible with those companies can be used. It’s another area where Apple’s tight software and hardware integration gives it a bang, and it’s expanding as Apple’s ecosystem of wearable devices and sensors continues to grow.

But going from “just” headphones to a sound device, it will obviously require various tests and public certifications. In addition, we are talking about technology that we will most likely see around the usual models, some future AirPods 5 and its Pro version, not around the AirPods Max 2, aimed more at the HiFi market. As it was, the potential is immense and to confirm that idea of ​​the body of the future, vitaminized FaceID is capable of scanning the full body to provide medical information.
