Apple just expanded the reach of its iPhone health records feature

Apple’s Heath Records feature, which allows iPhone users to download their medical records to their smartphones, is now available in the UK and is being used by two hospital trusts.

The feature, part of Apple’s Health app, gives iPhone users the ability to request and download their electronic health records as stored by hospitals using a direct, encrypted connection between their iPhones and the system used by the clinic. The Health app then periodically connects to pull across any new health records and notify users when new records are available.

Currently in the US over 500 institutions support the Health Records feature on the iPhone across 11,000 locations.

In many cases, patients’ medical records are held in multiple locations, requiring patients to log in to each healthcare provider’s website to piece together their health information manually.

Gears Tactics Will Feature New Content On Xbox Series X And S

Gears Tactics launched earlier this year on PC, and it’s finally heading to Xbox Series X and Series S when the two consoles launch later this year, along with a host of gameplay and content additions.

The new content will introduce Jack to the squad, who you will likely recognize as the cloaking robot companion to Marcus Fenix and co. in the original trilogy of games. Jack won’t be around to rip open doors this time, giving you numerous new commands to use in combat, including area of effect skills and the ability to control enemy units.

The Coalition is also adding new Deviant enemies to the game, which should help its longevity by providing additional challenges to players seeking them. These enemies will be more cunning and quick to react to your strategies, but also reward players with new high-level gear to make the demanding combat worthwhile. These content

I wish my iPhone had this amazing and useful feature

My daily driver smartphone is an iPhone, and while the iPhone has a great camera, and has an app and hardware ecosystem that is second to none, it’s missing a truly useful feature. A feature that I have to turn to Android to satisfy.

A FLIR thermal camera.

Now sure, I could turn to a dedicated FLIR unit such as the FLIR TG165-X (spoilers, I own one) or a FLIR camera that hooks up to the Lightning port of my iPhone, such as the FLIR ONE PRO (spoilers, I owned one but it was a pain to use when the iPhone was in a case), but none are as portable and convenient as having a thermal camera built into a smartphone.

While FLIR Lepton thermal cameras are built into a number of smartphones, the new Ulefone Armor 9 is the cheapest by far.

It’s also the world’s first Android 10
