There are many ways how Apple is using Data Science and Machine Learning in its products and applications. So, if you want to know how Apple uses Data Science, this article is for you. In this article, I will introduce how Apple uses Data Science in its applications, products and services.

Here’s How Apple Uses Data Science

Below are some ways Apple uses Data Science in its applications, products, and services.

Tracking In-App Purchases

Apple’s app store helps Apple earn revenue from businesses worldwide. Apple keeps track of all the transactions on the applications available in its app store. Whenever a user buys any service from any application on an iPhone, Apple tracks and records the transaction.

Apple Watch has many competitors today. But what makes it different from its competitors and worth its cost is how Apple uses Machine Learning models and many other technologies to analyze the heart health of its users.

Most of the smartwatches in the market can detect your heart rate. But the machine learning models used in the Apple Watch have made it possible to predict heart failures. Apple Watch also analyzes and sends high and low heart rate notifications that enable the use of its smartwatch in the healthcare industry.
