The Apple logo is seen in the Munich downtown pedestrian zone during dawn of the opening day of Germany’s first Apple shop on December 6, 2008 in Munich, Germany. The 226th Apple store is the first in Germany and situated close to famous Munich city center Marienplatz.
On the other hand, some Apple critics claimed that the new Casper program could help the giant tech firm provide primary health care service to patients visiting its Apple-owned clinics.
Apple said that its emerging Casper project was already conceived in 2016, which is just one year after the Apple Watch release back in 2015. To give you more ideas, here are other details of Apple’s new Casper program.
Apple’s Casper Program To Help Doctors and Patients
According to Gizmodo’s latest report, Apple’s new Secret Health Care Program could help doctors and patients to be in touch with one another even more. This impact was already envisioned by the tech giant manufacturer’s CEO, Jeff Williams.

Because of this, Apple’s Casper is also dubbed the “363,” which is a reference to the fact that a normal person only visits a doctor or other medical expert two times a year. This is currently a bad habit, especially since the global COVID-19 pandemic is still affecting various countries across the globe.
On the other hand, Apple also discussed that the 363 issue means that most people only visit their doctors when there is already something wrong with their health.
“The team decided one of the best ways to realize that vision was to provide a medical service of its own,” said the involved researchers in the new Apple project.
“Apple would offer primary care, but also continuous health monitoring as part of a subscription-based personalized health program, according to these people and the documents,” the further explained.
This just shows that just like Facebook and other tech firms, Apple is not starting to expand its scope to focus on developing advanced gadgets, such as the new Apple Watch Series 7 and more.
Apple Says Health App Is Drastically Improving
Since Apple now focuses on helping its customers be healthy, the tech giant manufacturer also confirmed that its Health app is now better than before, thanks to iOS 15.
Tech Crunch reported that once the Health app’s centralized location is developed, they could create a new system that could store essential health-related data and an API and architecture, which could help developers store the mentioned information.
