Most of us have used Apple’s Health app for years. Now, with the addition of iOS 15, Apple has created a native Health app to replace third party apps that previously powered Health. Health will have the capability to connect with external medical applications and direct data from your iPhone’s Health app to outside servers.
There’s a lot more to watch from Health as Apple continues to add functionality and the ability to monitor your personal health, wellness, and growth. The Fitbit name is fading rapidly as the market has started to grow with third party apps, now called Healthtrackers, that look to create a seamless experience with Health. It could be that Apple goes the extra mile to provide that next level of control we all crave.
