iOS 10 will bring new option for organ donation within the Health app

Soon we will see an important new function in the application Sade (Health) at the iOS 10. From the new version of the system, we will have in the app a simple button that will allow users to make their bodies available for donation.

Organ donor in Sade iOS 10

Apple CEO Tim Cook said Associated Press who hopes that this company initiative can help people in need of an organization to receive it more quickly. In fact, he himself had a bad experience that he told the AP and that most likely influenced you to think about this new feature. Cook reported that Steve Jobs himself went through a ?painful? wait for a liver transplant in 2009. He followed this wait closely and even offered to donate his liver, but Jobs rejected it, receiving one soon after as the book tells "How Steve Jobs became Steve Jobs".

The official note from Apple reveals that not only organs can be donated, but also eyes and tissue. In addition to the donation option, users will be able to learn more about the process from the app itself. All records will go directly from the iPhone to the National Donate Life, managed by the organization Donate Life America.

?On average, a person dies every hour in the United States waiting for an organ transplant because the demand for transplants far exceeds the available supply of organs and a donor can save up to eight lives,? said David Fleming, Donate president and CEO America Life. More than 120,000 Americans are currently in line for a transplant and every 10 minutes, a new individual is added to that list.

At first this novelty will only arrive in the United States, but it is definitely a wonderful addition even to draw everyone's attention to this problem and bring more information. The novelty comes along with iOS 10, which will arrive for all of us in September or October.
