Apple Launches Study to Detect Depression, Dementia using iPhones

Apple is launching a research study to see if its products could detect depression, anxiety and dementia symptoms in its users.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the tech giant is working on ways to monitor the health of its iPhone and Apple Watch users.

Some of the things it plans to monitor would be facial expressions, typos made, respiration and heart rates, sleep patterns and walking.

Apple says it is still in the early stages of developing and collecting this data, but is hoping that with that information they can develop an app or feature that could warn people that they are at risk so they can seek care.
