Tim Cook – CEO, Apple Inc.

Thank you. Thank you. Good morning. Good morning. Thank you for joining us, and welcome to San Francisco and the legendary Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. We could not be more excited to be here this morning, and we’re so glad that so many people from all over the world could join us, including many of our employees. Hey, guys.

It’s been an incredible year for Apple. We are really firing on all cylinders. And we are about to make some monster announcements across several of our product lines. So we have a big day ahead, and there’s no time for updates, so I’d like to get right in and talk about Apple Watch.

Yes. Just a few months ago, we made Apple Watch available to our customers around the world. It’s already changing their daily lives, and they love using it. They love how quick and easy it is to respond and receive messages and phone calls and notifications from their favorite apps. They’re amazed at how Siri on the Watch lets them do so much with just their voice, like get directions or send a quick message.

With Apple Pay, customers are loving that they can purchase directly from their wrist. And Apple Watch is helping our users live a better day, closing those rings had become a healthy obsession. In fact, we have been flooded by emails, like this one from Dennis, saying that the Apple Watch has motivated him to work out and exercise on a regular basis. To many people like Dennis, the Apple Watch has been life changing.

For all of these reasons and many more, people love using Apple Watch. Customer satisfaction is an incredible 97%. Now, despite just launching the watch a few months ago, we are on an incredible pace of innovation, and to tell you about where we are going next, I’d like to invite Jeff Williams to the stage. Jeff?

Jeff Williams – SVP, Operations, Apple Inc.

Thanks, Tim. In June, just weeks after launching Apple Watch, we previewed our next generation of OS, and it’s packed with powerful features. There are new watch faces, like this beautiful one with time transit, and third-party complications. Third-party complications, this is a big deal. It’s a really powerful thing to be able to glance at your wrist and see the information that’s important to you. And now with third-party complications, you can see even more, things like the latest news or your airline departure time and Time Travel. Just rotate the Digital Crown and view the day ahead. It’s the fastest way to see the next couple of meetings or check what the temperature will be later in the day, for example. And we are adding Transit to Maps, making it easier to find and use public transportation.

Now, in addition to these and other built-in features, developers have been hard at work. There are already over 10,000 Watch apps on the App Store.

And now, with native apps, developers can do even more. Apps can display video, they can access hardware, like the microphone, speaker, and health sensors. I’d like to show you a few right now.

Facebook Messenger is coming to the Watch. Facebook Messenger allows users to send texts, send audio messages, and share their location right from their wrist.

And iTranslate, one of my personal favorites. Just speak into the microphone and see and hear translations in over 90 languages.

And GoPro. The wrist is an ideal location to control your GoPro, and now the app turns the watch into a viewfinder. No matter where your camera is mounted, you will always know where it’s pointed, and you will never miss that important shot.

And then AirStrip. This is an app that is for physicians, and I think it’s a great example of just how far developers can go with native apps. But rather than describe it for you, I’d like to bring up Dr. Cameron Powell, Co-Founder of AirStrip, to demo it for you now.

Dr. Cameron Powell – Co-Founder, AirStrip

Thanks, Jeff. Joining me on stage is AirStrip’s Co-Founder Trey Moore. AirStrip plays an important role in our country’s healthcare system, leveraging the use of iPhone and iPad. But here comes another game-changer for healthcare, Apple Watch.

Let’s start with a physician who is viewing his daily schedule, making rounds, and communicating with the team. Now, if I look at my watch face, I can see my next patient. I can notice her diagnosis, and I can actually Time Travel to see what’s next. But let’s see what happens if a nurse sends me a notification. Now, within the message itself, I can see the alert, the waveform, vital signs, and the lab results. The reason that I can immediately see all of this relevant data is because once I have the watch on, I am securely authenticated until I take it off.

Let’s go back and dig a little deeper on that waveform. I really want to know what’s happening right now. Thank you.

Now, this, this wasn’t possible until watchOS 2, but what I really care about is I want to compare what happens in real-time to what has been happening more recently, and I can do that on Apple Watch by rotating the Digital Crown. Now, as you can see, AirStrip magically pulls all this data together into a single view through our AirStrip 1 platform, and we make it available to Apple Watch for display. But what is so great is I can take action on what I see. Here I can send a HIPAA-compliant secure message to a member of the patient’s care team. In this instance, I am going to order a repeat ECG.
