Apple's New Update Will Let You Save Medical Records On Your Phone
Apple's iOS 11.3 will introduce a feature that lets doctors send medical records to your phone.
SHOW TRANSCRIPT

The next version of Apple's iOS will add some pretty cool features.

One of those features is the ability to store medical records on the Health app. Users will be able to save things like records, allergies, immunizations and lab results — which could come in handy in an emergency.

Users will also be able to save records from multiple doctors and clinics — if those medical institutions participate. 

Apple says the Health Records information will be encrypted and passcode-protected.

The update also will include new animojis and the ability to see battery health.
