If this kind of sensor has been there, at least one "real" Glucose Level monitor should be using it without a smartphone. Have you ever seen Apple makes even one electronic component in the past?
Let's start with the A processors, move on to the display controllers in the 5K iMac, the W1 chip in the headphones…
They usually buy this tech. Authentec is that sort of purchase... everyone was stuck in 'classic' fingerprint readers until Apple spent 2 years investing in Authentec's technology, and building in the tech to make it 'insanely great'
The question is, what companies have they bought that we don't know about yet (they usually have several smaller acquisitions that don't get found out for upwards of a year) that have compelling bench technology that requires Apple's skill to miniaturize into a chip. and build at scale.

But, the laptop hangs on -- and will -- because Apple and Google have yet to offer a viable alternative to the things that it does well (without also dealing with its chain-gang mentality).

why can't the 'virtual buttons' be a 'five button' dock where Touch ID and a 3dTouch home region is reserved.
That said, I'm not yet convinced... I'm waiting for where the ear speaker and camera will be placed on the bezel. I'm wondering if it's 5.15" because we still need a .6" bezel at the top for a front facing camera and ear speaker.

My 6s with a cracked screen [barely] survived a 3 second dunk in 6 inches of water this weekend.
Within the hour I had blow dried it for 10 minutes, and after getting poor results, I then buried it 8 hours in a pound of rice (best desiccant you can get).
Before the rice, I was still getting an issue with recognizing no headphones (NOTE: reason why the headphone jack is an issue is that there appears to be a electronics that detects a jack in place, and it is very water sensitive) , and it wasn't charging, and it took several tries to get it to backup to iTunes (to the point I was concerned I had toasted it). After the rice, everything seems to be good (48 hours and counting).
I'm counting down the months to my iP8, as I have a couple 'Pepsi Syndrome' events a year.
