Google today released Android Q developer beta 4 with what the company says are the platform's final APIs and official SDK. This means developers now have the final set of tools they need to code apps for Android Q, which Google will release later this summer. Google also has plans for Firebase.
Apple revealed its intent to enter the healthcare market by adding two new components to iOS: Health, a separate companion app, and HealthKit, a hub for third-party apps related to health and well-being. Health is Apple's own application meant to help iPhone and iPad owners keep track of their health and fitness statistics, such as calories burned, weight fluctuations, and sleep patterns. HealthKit is for developers - who need to be careful about staying on the right side of the law when it comes to the privacy of healthcare information.
