The future of health research is you! Now you can contribute to groundbreaking health research in women’s health, hearing health or heart health simply by using your Apple Watch and iPhone, and the Research app. Your data and participation will help advance researchers' understanding of these areas in health that have not been well understood until now and could lead to the development of new products that will help millions lead longer and healthier lives. 1. Join the Apple Women’s Health Study, conducted in partnership with the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and National Institue of Health Sciences to help advance the understanding of menstrual cycles and health conditions such as infertility, osteoporosis, and menopause. 2. Join the Apple Heart and Movement Study, conducted in partnership with the American Heart Association and Bringham and Women's Hospital to help advance discovery in heart science and to help us learn how activity and your habits can contribute to a healthier heart. 3. Join the Apple Hearing Study, conducted in partnership with the University of Michigan to help advance the understanding of how sound exposure levels over time can impact your hearing, stress levels, and cardiac health. Features: Review available studies, learn about the research partners and the research goals, understand study expectations, and if you are eligible, enroll by providing your consent. Choose which data to share and with what study, and review and manage data collected. Perform relevant tasks for enrolled studies. Learn how other Apple research studies have contributed to advancements in health science and to the development of innovative health products.
Stopped sending me alerts and nothing I could do would reenable the alerts except deleting and reinstalling the app. After that it showed me as having never done any research studies event though I’ve sent months of data. 😢
Great idea! Think it’s a very useful and helpful app. However I think the people participating should get some type of compensation.
I’m already paying for an expensive phone and watch, then to participate in the studies offers no type of compensation. There’s lots of other apps that give rewards of some sort for collecting this data. Maybe offer ITunes gift cards for ongoing participation. I’m sure this information is very beneficial and in the long run making Apple lots of money. Shame on you Apple.
As a researcher myself, I am supportive of these large companies using their power to advance research. I downloaded the app and joined the Apple Women’s Health Study. About a week in, I got a notification telling me to review my permissions so they could access my cycle tracking on the Health app. Every time I tried to click review, the app would shut out. After several days of trying and it still shutting out, I deleted the app and re-downloaded it to find out it forgets you when you delete the app (but the researchers still have the data I previously entered). If I were to join the study again, I’d be adding an additional data point. Seems ridiculous and easily fixable with a username and password system, or pairing data with the device serial number if possible. Apple is always trying to simplify things but in turn they miss key points and make things less user friendly and useful.

I am very happy that Apple allows researchers to access health information. I am even more happy that the participants can easily manage this information and understand what they share and why. This initiative can be groundbreaking in the health studies and I am happy to participate. The only thing that can be improved is the number of studies.
Super upset about this. I thought it would be super cool to participate in studies and I’m really upset to find out that these studies will only be representative of a small part of the world. There are so many different people around the world who have something to give to these studies and only basing it on the US, is not a full and round study.
Last update bricked this app for me. When I attempt to open it my screen will just flash then it closes.
Hi! This app is a briliant ideea. The only problem is, i can’t participate in any of the studies because the app can’t accept my phone number.
I’m a huge fan of open source initiatives like crowd sourced research, and this is spot on in that regard. Love it!!
