Apple is on the secret mission!!!!!

Recently company recruited a team of biomedical engineers as a part of a secret initiative. According to close sources, company is currently working on developing sensors to treat diabetes.

But when asked from an Apple Spokeswoman, she declined to comment on it.

The engineers are expected to work at a nondescript office in Palo Alto, California, close to the corporate headquarters, CNBC said.

The news comes at the time when the line between pharmaceuticals and technology is blurring as companies are joining forces to tackle chronic diseases using high-tech devices that combine biology, software and hardware, thereby jump-starting a novel field of medicine called bioelectronics.

Last year, GlaxoSmithKline and Google parent Alphabet unveiled a joint company aimed at marketing bioelectronic devices to fight illness by attaching to individual nerves.

US biotech firms Setpoint Medical and EnteroMedics have already shown early benefits of bioelectronics in treating rheumatoid arthritis and suppressing appetite in the obese.
