Apple on Wednesday afternoon posted a new and uncharacteristically lengthy video to its YouTube channel.

The video is rather powerful and highlights how iOS apps are having a substantive impact in a myriad of ways. In one particularly fascinating snippet, a paralympic medalist in rowing describes how she’s able to precisely control her prosthetics with the iOS app Galileo, enabling her to more comfortably and properly align the angle of her foot while using exercise equipment and when wearing varying types of footwear.

The video description reads:

Each iOS app offers remarkable – and often delightful – possibilities. But the most powerful iOS apps ever are ones that change people’s lives in ways they never imagined.

It’s a great video, and I’m actually surprised Apple didn’t show this during the WWDC keynote.
