WWDC 2023: Apple brings menatal health technology in focus

Tech giant Apple launched a range of products at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), which kicks off Monday at its Cupertino, California, campus. Apple Vision Pro has become the star of the show, the company's first augmented reality headset which is positioned as primarily an AR device, but it can switch between augmented and full virtual reality using a dial.

Besides, Apple also unveiled watchOS 10, macOS Sonoma, and other products.

While the company's technological revolution has always made the headline, this time Apple has introduced significant features for mental health. Apple Inc has announced new health features in iOS 17, iPadOS 17, and watchOS 10. The Cupertino-headquartered company announced new mental health features allowing users to log their momentary emotions and daily moods, see valuable insights, and easily access assessments and resources.

iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch offer new vision health features that encourage healthy behaviors that help reduce the risk of myopia, and the Health app comes to iPad, giving users new ways to see their health data.

The Health app in iOS 17 and iPasOS 17, and the Mindfulness app in watchOS 10 will allow users to reflect on their state of mind.

With this Health app, users can scroll through engaging, multidimensional shapes and choose how they are feeling in a range from Very Pleasant to Very Unpleasant. Then the user can select associations that are having the biggest impact on their feelings, like Travel or Family, and describe their feelings, such as Grateful or Worried.

In the Health app, users can see valuable insights to identify what might be contributing to their state of mind — whether it’s associations or lifestyle factors, such as sleep or exercise — and can use these insights to better manage their overall health.

In a recent survey, more than 30% of US adults said they have experienced symptoms of anxiety or depression. The same depression and anxiety assessments often used in clinics are now easily accessible in the Health app and can be taken anytime. These assessments can help users determine their risk level, connect to resources available in their region, and create a PDF to share with their doctor.

Apple shares hit an all-time record Monday, putting the company's market valuation just shy of $3 trillion.
