Apple has released an updated version of ResearchKit with support for the iPad. Today's update also includes reaction time tasks, navigable ordered task, image capture step, improves wider support, and lots of other bug fixes and style improvements.

Today we're happy to announce that we've tagged a new stable release of ResearchKit, version 1.1. This new version includes multiple significant contributions:

● Audiometry active task (Shazino SAS)
● Reaction time active task (James Cox)
● Navigable Ordered Task (Ricardo Sánchez-Sáez)
● iPad support (Ricardo Sánchez-Sáez, Bruce Duncan, and others)
● Image Capture step (Bruce Duncan)
● Improved slider support (various contributors)
● plus various bug fixes and style improvements

Over the past few weeks these changes have had additional review for accessibility, and have been localized to all the languages iOS supports.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far. We're also very excited to see such a good pipeline of additional work coming along aiming toward the next version.
