'There's more here': Tim Cook on Apple's healthcare plans

After Apple's most recent record-breaking quarter boasting a revenue of almost $124 billion, the tech giant is still pushing into healthcare. 

On an earnings call Jan. 27, Apple CEO Tim Cook spoke about the company's plans for healthcare. 

He mentioned the success of the Apple Watch, with its ability to provide fitness and wellness tracking information, as well as more recent success stories of the watch alerting emergency services for customers in need. 

"Nearly every day, I get notes from customers who share how a heart alert led to a life-saving appointment with the cardiologist," he said. "We're still in the early innings with our health work, but every day, I am encouraged by our positive impact."

When questioned about Apple's future in healthcare, Mr. Cook avoided sharing too many details, but did say, "My sense has always been that there's more here. We continue to kind of pull the string and see where it takes us."
