According to a report from 9to5Mac, Apple is currently developing a brand new framework called SensorKit. This would be primarily focused on research studies, based on the information shared to the publication from “people familiar with its development.”
Apps using the framework will get access to a large array of sensors, including ambient light sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope, location metrics, keyboard metrics, pedometer, Apple Watch heart rate, Apple Watch wrist detection and even usage reports for apps. The latter could enable third-party screen time apps to be developed without getting in trouble with App Review.
If SensorKit is indeed in the works, it will join ResearchKit and CareKit as part of Apple’s growing medical framework for its devices. CareKit makes it possible for developers to help users track their medical conditions.
It sounds like SensorKit could make research studies a lot easier, thanks to access to built-in sensors within the range of Apple-branded products.
