Moreover, in 2012, Apple was granted access to the five-element lens, in 2014, test boards and lenses, as well as software tools for the modeling of lenses and prototypes. According to the plaintiff, it was extremely important for the development of the cameras of the iPhone.

In 2016, Apple released the iPhone 7 Plus, not having signed a pre-deal with Corephotonics. Then Corephotonics tried to negotiate with Apple about a partnership, but to no avail.

Later, after examining the camera modules Plus the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 Plus, a developer of technology came to the conclusion that they use its patents, which Apple did not think to license. In November 2017, the company Corephotonics has filed the first lawsuit. The second lawsuit followed in April 2018, and touched the iPhone X, and this claim is referred to the iPhone XS and XS Max.

Apple is putting health records directly into veterans’ pockets.

The tech titan partnered with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to give vets access to personal data on their iPhone.

Following a trial run with select patients this summer, all former military personnel who use iOS and receive care through the Veterans Health Administration now have entreé to a “fuller, more comprehensive picture” of their health.

Patients’ medical records are typically held in multiple locations, forcing people to log into various provider websites to manually piece together their data.

But what if those details were stored at your fingertips—accessible with the click of a button?

Apple’s Health Records feature debuted in beta early last year, with Johns Hopkins Medicine, Cedars-Sinai, and Penn Medicine among the first participants.

“Helping veterans gain a better understanding of their health is our chance to show our gratitude for their service,” Apple Chief Operating Officer Jeff Williams said in a statement.

“By working with the VA to offer Health Records on iPhone,” he continued, “we hope to help those who served have greater peace of mind that their health care is in good hands.”

The VA is the country’s largest medical system, providing service to more than 9 million veterans across 1,243 facilities—including hospitals and clinics.

This week, it joined Johns Hopkins, University of California San Diego, Quest Diagnostics, Allscripts, and 400 other healthcare provider organizations, laboratory networks, and electronic health records vendors to support Health Records on iPhone.

Vets can simply sign into their provider’s patient portal in the Health app to find details about allergies, conditions, immunizations, lab results, medications, procedures, and vitals.

The platform regularly updates personal records, giving folks access to “a single, integrated snapshot of their health profile whenever they want, quickly and privately,” according to Apple.

All Health Records data—including sensitive, personal information—is encrypted and protected with the user’s iPhone passcode, Touch ID, or Face ID.

Apple “finished off” word Pro

Source has published a very apt and witty note about how marketers devalue terms. Since the article is a complete work in the genre of the obituary, not devoid of artistic merit, instead of the usual retellings bring him entirely.

Pro (noun), the abbreviation for Professional: born in 1798, died in 2019, at the age of 221 years, after a long illness

We regret to inform you that the noun Pro, short for Professional (“professional”), died at the age of 221 years.

The word “professional”, meaning “one who earns a living”, was first recorded in the modern English language in 1798. It gained popularity in the early 20th century, but in recent decades, been subjected to almost continuous attack.

Along with the reduction Pro, full Professional for some time showed signs of poor health, but things are getting worse especially fast in the mid 2000-ies, the code is the word habitually and arbitrarily began to be added to the names of everything from computers and software to apps for smartphones and kitchen appliances. Even then it was hard to hold firmly, still keeping its original meaning the face of strong irregular applications, which would long ago have killed a less strong word.

But fate was destined. By the end of the first decade of the 21st century, it became clear that the word, originally created to describe someone who is paid for what he does, tortured, applying in the opposite sense: “what people have to pay more.”

When Apple added Pro to the name of its smartphone last month, etymologists warned friends of this word, that they were preparing for the worst.

Unfortunately, with the launch this week of Apple AirPods headphones Pro, the word has become meaningless and, as a consequence, dead. Killed by professional marketers.
