Apple and Google deliver first tools for coronavirus tracking technology

  • Apple and Google on Wednesday delivered the first tools for their coronavirus tracking technology to certain public health authorities.
  • The full toolset will be released in mid-May.
  • The technology uses signals from people’s phones to warn them if they’ve been in contact with someone over the past 14 days who’s tested positive for the new coronavirus.
  • Eventually the contact-tracing capability will be built into their mobile operating systems, building off the public health apps
