    Yeah I’m sure they can detect me laying in bed all day scrolling but then what? Will I get a pop-up telling me I’m sad?

    Considering how incredibly easy it is with simple pattern recognition, especially with the device at the center of all of it for millions of people, I’d say we’re about to see Apple giving some silly reasons why we’re all depressed.
    Maybe an app/widget to remind us to be mindful every hour or so, then we’ll know Apple really cares and every one will be happy again, especially with the commercials telling us how much happier they are making everyone.

    Apple couldn’t handle that much information.

    This is trash. Many people who go to a GP for “depression” or “anxiety” have something else that’s causing it. Undiagnosed ADHD, CPTSD, OCD, – and the doctor just hands you antidepressants and then antipsychotics if it doesn’t get better.

    You *need* to talk to a therapist if you want to know what’s wrong with you.

    Apple’s iPhone is going to detect CSAM, autism, and now depression. What’s next, the iPhone will detect if you haven’t called your mother and automatically dial her when your calendar is free?

    People are complex and so is depression phones cannot access your chemical content in your brain anymore than paper tests can be a marker of truth for certain truths or traits in personality for all the population.
