Apple’s next software update for the the iPhone will make it easier to register as an organ donor. Apple is adding the new feature to its Health app. Users will be able to sign up to become organ, eye, and tissue donors with a few taps. Registrations submitted on the iPhone will be sent straight to the National Donate Life Registry in the US. https://nr.apple.com/dE4B8r0n4K

    1. the challenge is getting people to let family members know their wishes so they are not overridden. Anything to encourage organ donation is good, but not sure how well this will go

    2. Good point! I think if it’s part of a software platform rather than on your license the benefit will be you can share your intention with family and friends so they see it in writing and have a chance to disagree before anything happens.
