New iPad feature to compete with laptops could come in Apple’s iOS 13

The debate over whether an Apple iPad can replace a laptop remains polarized. But with the launch of the next iteration of iOS, Apple could finally remove one of the longest-running arguments against the iPad as a productivity device.

The idea is simple: Health workers visit remote villages to check if local inhabitants have any symptoms of a range of life-threatening infectious diseases, including polio and measles. Then, with the mobile app, they quickly and easily alert WHO.

“This is one of the most exciting things that is happening in the WHO regional office in Africa,” says Dr Matshidiso Moeti, WHO regional director for Africa.
