Apple Watch ECG Helps Detect Case of Coronary Ischemia Missed by Hospital ECG

The single-lead ECG function on Apple Watch isn’t meant to be as informative or as sensitive as the multi-lead ECGs you might get in a doctor’s office or hospital, which use several points of contact. However, a new article in The European Heart Journal tells the story of an 80-year-old woman whose ‌Apple Watch‌ detected evidence of a heart condition that was missed by a hospital ECG (via 9to5Mac).


According to the article, the woman presented at University Medical Center Mainz, Germany, complaining of chest pain, irregular heart rhythm, and lightheadedness. When doctors at the hospital performed a 12-channel ECG, it revealed “no evidence for ischemia,” which occurs when blood flow to the heart is reduced, preventing the heart muscle from receiving enough oxygen.

However the woman then showed doctors her ‌Apple Watch‌ ECG results, which included “tracings with marked ST-segment depression.” After studying the ‌Apple Watch‌ results, doctors did indeed see evidence of myocardial ischemia, and the woman was transferred to the catheterization lab for a “left main stem stenosis and a left anterior descending/diagonal bifurcation lesion,” and treatment with coronary artery stenting.

Essentially, the ‌Apple Watch‌ ECG recordings showed evidence of a heart condition that the hospital’s specialized equipment failed to pick up, and that convinced the doctors to treat the patient, who left the hospital the next day.

The report concludes that the Apple watch may be used to reliably detect myocardial ischaemia.

The development of smart technologies paves the way for new diagnostic possibilities. In the case of the ‌Apple Watch‌, after the mobile application is installed, the records an ECG when a finger is placed on the watch’s digital crown. A 30-s tracing is stored in a PDF file that can be retrieved from the application.

Thus, the ‌Apple Watch‌ may be used not only to detect atrial fibrillation or atrioventricular-conduction disturbances but also to detect myocardial ischemia. An apple a day may keep myocardial infarction away.

You can read the full report here. Rumors regarding the ‌Apple Watch‌ Series 6, expected to launch later this year, suggest additional health-related features mental, including blood oxygen detection, sleep tracking, and stress detection.

Hands-On With Logitech’s New Keyboard Case With Trackpad for iPad Air

When Apple debuted the new Magic Keyboard with Trackpad for the iPad Pro, Logitech also announced new keyboards with trackpads that take advantage of the trackpad functionality in iPadOS 13.4 but are designed for older iPads, including the most recent iPad Air, the 10.5-inch ‌iPad Pro‌, and the 7th-generation ‌iPad‌.

Subscribe to the MacRumors YouTube channel for more videos.

We got our hands on one of the new Logitech Combo Touch Keyboard Cases with Trackpad designed for the ‌iPad‌ Air, and we thought we’d check it out to see how it works and whether it’s worth the $150 purchase price.

Design wise, this is a high-quality keyboard case that’s got a Microsoft Surface look and feel to it thanks to the fabric build, offering full protection for the ‌iPad‌ except for the section where the keyboard connects. With the keyboard attached, though, the ‌iPad‌ is protected when the case is closed up and not in use.


A pop-out kickstand provides 40 degrees of adjustment so it can be set to different angles for typing, watching media content, and browsing the web, and it’s a solid kickstand that works well. There’s also a handy Apple Pencil holder at the top to keep that accessory tucked away when not in use.


The trackpad and keyboard combo is fantastic with the iOS 13.4 trackpad integration, and it adds a new level of productivity to cases that just offer keyboards. The trackpad is a bit firm and there’s a small zone at the top where it can’t be clicked, but that doesn’t hinder every day use.

Smooth scrolling, tap to click, and gesture support make it a pleasant usage experience, and it’s clear that this was designed from the ground up with iOS 13.4 in mind. It’s a solid experience that outperforms the Brydge Pro+ with trackpad that we also recently looked at.


The Logitech Combo Touch Keyboard Case supports the same gestures that you get with a Magic Trackpad 2. A three finger swipe to the left or the right swaps between apps, a three finger swipe down goes to the Home screen, a two finger swipe down brings up Spotlight search, and a three finger swipe up opens up the multitasking interface.

The keyboard is a little bit cramped when typing, but the keys feel great under the fingers with a decent amount of key travel. We did run into an issue where some keys occasionally failed to work (but then worked later), which could be an issue with this particular keyboard or a problem that may be able to be fixed at a later date with a firmware update.


As an example, the dollar sign failed to work at first, but a day later it was a functional key. Later, the apostrophe key failed to work, but not the quotation as it worked fine with the shift key held down.

The keys are backlit and brightness can be toggled using function keys, with other options available for accessing the Home screen, adjusting screen brightness, accessing search, and accessing media controls.


When using this keyboard in the lap without a flat surface, it works, but it’s not the best experience. It’s simple to type, but there is some screen wobble depending on how hard you’re typing.

All in all, this is a solid keyboard option for those who don’t have an ‌iPad Pro‌ and won’t be able to get the Magic Keyboard. For those who want to add more functionality to their iPads and use them for a lot of typing and tasks where a trackpad would come in handy, Logitech’s Combo Touch Keyboard Cases with Trackpad are well worth the purchase price and can be picked up from the Apple Store.

Case for Upcoming Low-Cost iPhone Shows Up at Best Buy With Alleged April 5 Stock Date

Apple has a new low-cost iPhone in the works, which is supposed to be launching sometime in the first half of 2020. Given the ongoing situation in the United States and other countries, it’s been unclear if the device is going to launch within the planned timeline, but there are signs that it could be coming soon.


We started seeing cases for the new low-cost ‌iPhone‌ back in early February, but now it appears new case options are showing up at retailers like Best Buy.

A source who emailed MacRumors shared a photo said to be from a Best Buy employee featuring an Urban Armor Gear case designed for the new 4.7-inch 2020 ‌iPhone‌. There’s no specific name on the case box, which is not unusual for cases made before a new device launches.

We can’t confirm the source of the case, but this does indeed look like one of the cases that manufacturers like Target and Best Buy get ahead of when a new ‌iPhone‌ debuts, as case manufacturers send these cases to retail stores early to be one of the first manufacturers to have a case available to customers at launch.

According to the source who sent us the photo, Best Buy employees have been instructed not to merchandise these cases until Sunday, April 5. Whether that is a date reflective of a timeline when we might see the new low-cost ‌iPhone‌ launch remains to be seen.

That date would perhaps suggest a low-cost ‌iPhone‌ launch as early as this week, but so far, we haven’t heard concrete details on when the new ‌iPhone‌ is coming out. Since we will be having no events in the near future, the low-cost ‌iPhone‌ could be announced at any point via a press release.

We don’t know what Apple is going to call its new phone, but in rumors, it’s been referred to as the “iPhone 9,” a missing ‌iPhone‌ number, or the “iPhone SE 2” due to its rumored $399 price tag.

The new ‌‌iPhone‌‌ is said to be identical to the iPhone 8 but with an A13 chip inside, featuring a 4.7-inch display, a single-lens rear camera, thick top and bottom bezels, and a Touch ID Home button. It is expected to come in space gray, silver, and red color options, and we’re expecting 64 and 128GB storage capacities.

(Thanks, Jim!)
