Researchers from the University of California San Fransisco in conjunction with the developers of the Cardiogram app have proven that using existing sensors, the Apple Watch can detect sleep apnea and hypertension with a high degree of accuracy, potentially opening up the ability for the device to be used as a long-term research tool for the conditions.
As part of an intensifying focus on holistic health care and supporting products, Apple was recently in talks to buy health clinic start-up Crossover Health, and approached primary care group One Medical, though the discussions ultimately fell through.
A new patent application suggests that Apple may be looking into "intelligent blood pressure monitoring" with an alert triggered by parameters set by the user — or by data collected by wearable sensors such as those found on the Apple Watch.

A lesser-known but theoretically life-saving feature of Apple's iOS Health app is Medical ID — a quick guide for nurses, doctors, ambulance crews and others in an emergency. Here's how to set it up on an iPhone running iOS 10.
