Apple has been accused of using a secretive test to detect the spread of the virus, and the company has since said it will launch a vaccine soon.
Apple announced the test at a news conference on Wednesday and also confirmed the vaccine would be available in time for Christmas.
The vaccine would work by detecting the presence of the viral DNA that is the key to the disease.
It would also include other measures like tracking the virus in people’s blood and saliva, and using the test to assess the effectiveness of vaccines against other diseases.
Apple CEO Tim Cook and other top executives have previously said the company is testing the vaccine on people who have contracted the coronavirus, and it is currently available in only two states.
Apple said that as a result, “most people have already had the vaccine.”
Apple is currently offering a test to test for the virus on people living in the US.
The company said Wednesday that it is also testing the new vaccine on customers living in other countries.
The testing process is not yet complete, but Apple said the test is “expected to be complete by the end of the year.”
The vaccine test is not available in Canada.
