Currently, Apple devices can provide users with fitness insights, but soon they may be able to offer personalized recommendations for improvement. According to sources from Bloomberg, Apple is developing an AI-based fitness coach, nicknamed Quartz, that will use data from the Apple Watch to create customized programs for exercise, diet, and sleep. This service will likely require a subscription and is expected to launch in 2024, barring any changes.
Additionally, the Health app may become more versatile in the near future. The insiders suggest that Apple will finally bring Health to the iPad with the release of iPadOS 17 this year. A forthcoming update may also allow users to manage their mood by answering questions about their day, as well as assist with vision issues such as nearsightedness. There are also rumors that Apple may release a journaling app similar to Day One.
Apple has declined to comment on these rumors. If they are true, they may be announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on June 5th. Along with unveiling the long-awaited mixed reality headset, Apple is expected to introduce health-related features such as a VR version of Fitness+ and a meditation tool. While this initial product may be aimed at developers and power users, a more affordable follow-up is rumored to be in the works.
