The first CareKit app will address Parkinsons patients, and more are on the way. Apple showed off some CareKit features during its "Let us loop you in" media event on Monday.

CareKit lets doctors and patients work together during recovery, and Apple said personal data will be encrypted and shareable only with the people you choose.

Apple's media event is still underway, so be sure to follow along with our live event coverage.
