Apple typically announces new iPhones in September, but this year the launch was delayed after the coronavirus pandemic disrupted supply chains. apple 5g iphone

Apple previously said new iPhones would be shipped slightly later than usual this year.

Making a 5G-connected iPhone could improve Apple’s digital services, such as Apple TV+. While iPhones have typically been Apple‘s biggest sales driver, the company is increasingly reliant on services to diversify its sales.
Apple is somewhat late to the 5G phone game. It’s new phone will join a growing list of options from Google, Motorola, Samsung, Huawei, LG and others. apple 5g iphone 
Recent weeks have brought a flurry of new products from tech companies, though, the traditionally splashy launch events were forced to go virtual this year because of Covid-19. Last month, Apple took the unusual step of using its September event to show off new Apple Watches, iPads and a new fitness subscription service — rather than its latest iPhones (CNN).


Health Records on iPhone available in the UK and Canada apple 5g iphone

The Health Records feature within the Health app is now available for users in the UK and Canada to securely view and store their medical records right on their iPhone, with their privacy protected at all times. Oxford University Hospitals and Women’s College Hospital are among the first healthcare institutions in the UK and Canada to make this feature available to their patients.
In the US, over 500 institutions currently support Health Records on iPhone, listing more than 11,000 care locations. Previously, patients’ medical records were held in multiple locations, requiring patients to log in to each healthcare provider’s website to piece together their health information manually. Health Records creates a direct connection between medical institutions and a patient’s iPhone, allowing users to see a central view of their allergies, conditions, immunizations, lab results, medications, procedures, and vitals across multiple institutions, and to be notified when their data is updated.
Apple believes privacy is a fundamental human right, and Health Records was designed to protect patients’ privacy at all times by utilizing a direct, encrypted connection between the user’s iPhone and the healthcare organization. In addition, all Health Records data is encrypted on device and protected with the user’s iPhone passcode, Touch ID, or Face ID. Apple worked closely with Cerner, Epic, Allscripts, and InterSystems to enable the FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) standards-based integration with the Health app for their UK and Canadian customers.
