Apple already dominates the cell phone market in profits by a wide margin. The next step will be to take advantage of their phone's ecosystems stability, intuitiveness and sophistication to build large and sophisticated platforms. Medical provides the perfect platform for it's universal and international. It takes full advantage of the existing camera, processor, memory, communications and above all security. Apple has the ideal existing foundation and resources to build this platform with the will to do it as Tim Cook has stated in many interviews. This is one of the few platforms that is large enough to have substantial impact on the world's largest company. With the US spending nearly twenty percent of its GDP on medical and being Apple's home country this is the logical place to start. With medical costs becoming a major problem for the US, this will also be able to fulfill Tim Cooks and Apples mission to make the world a better place. It also is a market that few have the resources and reach to penetrate rapidly and world wide, providing Apple with a business with a wide moat. Apple literally has the muscle to overcome the entrenched special interests that have made US medical 37th in quality at the world's highest cost. I can see the day when the Apple medical platform is not only used passively for monitoring, but using active controls and devices to not only treat conditions, but actually augment and improve our health. Apple already has an ideal partner in the semiconductor end of this with TSMC. Both TSMC and Apple know how to work with others and to everyone's benefit. I feel the next platform Apple might tackle will be education. I hope this happens soon for medical is the current greatest threat to the US economy.
