Technology has changed the definition of innovations that we are using quite some time. It is proven that smartphones have limitless application in almost every sector with the regular evolution of the mobile app technology. Not only smartphones, wearable devices have taken our expectation to a whole new level. Apple has already introduced its wearable devices in the market including Apple watch embedded with health care functionalities. According to latest mobile app technology news Apple recently acquired the sleep tracking device maker company the Beddit. There is no official statement about the deal from the Apple side. As there are no words about the purchase from the company, Apple wants to keep the deal low. The information came from the Beddit official website where they updated their Privacy Policy Page last on the 8th of May. They added in the page “Beddit has been acquired by Apple. Your personal data will be collected, used and disclosed in accordance with the Apple Privacy Policy”. But there is neither any discussion about any financial figure nor any official announcement from both the sides.

Beddit is known to develop both sleep tracking software and hardware to track down the sleeping data. Beddit already has an app for both iOS and Apple Watch which is compatible with Beddit 3 Sleep monitor. The sleep monitor device is a flat fabric strip which is slipped in the mattress, under you, while you sleep. The flat wire strip is fitted with the sensors to track down the data like humidity, motion, and temperature. The sleep monitor also gathers the data like sleep time and quality, heart rate, breathing patterns, deep and light sleep times, sleep efficiency, and more. With this step, Apple is planning to integrate its own created sleep-tracking features to its products in the coming time. It is clear that Beddit will continue to manufacture sleep-tracking devices. However Apple didn't buy the company just to create sleep- monitor, soon Apple is going to craft something with Beddit and give market new sensation. The company definitely improvise some new strategies in the sleep-tracking devices to find a new way to make it more popular.
