Loup Ventures foresees future Apple services such as Health+, Maps+, Podcasts+, more

Loup Ventures thinks Apple will add more services to its list of current ones (Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple News+, Apple Arcade, Fitness+, and iCloud). You can read their in-depth article here, but here are some of the new and/or expanded Apple services they foresee:

° Health+, a healthcare opportunity that would leverage sensors “to capture more health data, more frequently, than perhaps any other consumer health platform.”

° Stocks+. If Apple is comfortable launching a credit card, they could eventually add other financial services, such as investment accounts. The Stocks app is already a go-to app for many investors, and there’s more the company could do. First, Apple could replicate its success with Apple Card and offer low-fee, private, secure, simple brokerage accounts. 

° Maps+. Loup Ventures thinks an Apple Car is on the product roadmap and that it and “Apple Maps could work together in a new service, Maps+, to help deliver the future of transportation.”

° Mail+, which would handle “inbox management, scheduling, and many of the daily tasks we perform in the Mail app could be automated, adding sufficient value to our lives while commanding a monthly fee.”

° Podcasts+, in which Apple will take a page from Spotify’s playbook and bundle premium podcasts (Podcasts+) with Apple Music and Apple One, at no extra charge for paying subscribers.
