Apple is rolling out a new beta program for its Beddit app, Apple acquired the app approximately two years ago and has sold Beddit products in the Apple Stores for some time. Apple has stated, on the beta program website, that users who join will get early access to new updates to the Beddit app.
Members of the beta program will also be providing feedback and sharing data. Participation is completely voluntary and users are able to remove themselves from the program at any time. Requirements for participation in the program are that users have U.S. residence, have the Beddit Sleep Monitor model 3.5, and be between 22 and 75 years of age.
Apple's interest in sleep monitoring goes far beyond the Beddit app. The company's interest dates back to the launch of the 'Bedtime' feature in the iOS Clock app, which was included in iOS 10.
