Apple has always said that once you use one of its products you don’t want to use another one other than its brand, this has been one of Cupertino’s most famous slogans. It seems that on this occasion this sentence is fulfilled again, although in a somewhat peculiar way since a surgeon has used an ultrasound device connected to his own iPhone and has discovered that he himself had cancer cells in his neck.
Obviously the terminal as such has not been the section that has given this person such information, but a device that is used in health centres and which has different functions such as scanning, so to speak, our body as it passes over our skin either to see the state of a pregnancy or to detect this type of illness.

The funny thing is that he was simply testing it, as we all know, health care in the United States is not free as in Spain so the cost of an operation or simply a test to detect something similar is extremely expensive, but this surgeon was only testing the device that has cost about 2,000 dollars , along with his iPhone and has taken this unpleasant surprise.
The same surgeon has said that this function that he has used to detect himself a cancer could have more uses in the future, that is, not only what we know today in hospitals. He has given an example saying that it does not have to be used on an iPhone, but can be used on any device that has a screen and operating system, whether it is an Android terminal or a Windows laptop , so it is accessible to almost everyone , something that in a country like the United States is difficult to find.
