Apple bought a start-up that was working on monitoring asthma in children

  • Apple buys Tueo Health, which was working on a solution to help parents monitor asthma symptoms in children using a mobile app and commercial breathing sensors.
  • Apple has been adding new health-care features to its products in recent years, especially in the Apple Watch.
  • The company is also expected to revamp its Health app for iPhones at its annual developers conference on June 3.

Apple has acquired Tueo Health, a small start-up that was developing a system to help parents monitor asthma symptoms in sleeping children, according to a person familiar with the deal.

It’s unclear how much Apple paid for Tueo Health. The start-up raised a small seed round of $1.1 million in funding in 2017. Tueo’s CEO and co-founder Bronwyn Harris and chief operating officer Anura Patil changed their employer to Apple on their LinkedIn profiles in late 2018, which is likely around the time Apple completed its acquisition of the company.
