The Health app was intended to help you manage and access your vital health information in one convenient and secure location. Apple has added capabilities to iOS 15 that will give you even more power. There are new options to share data with family and friends, a measure to assess your walking stability and danger of falling, and trend analysis to help you understand health changes.
Apple Health gathers data from your iPhone, Apple Watch‘s built-in sensors, connected medical equipment, and HealthKit-enabled apps. The Health app is designed to keep your information safe and private.
Your data is encrypted and stays on your device. And you have complete control over your health data. ‘Highlights’ uses machine learning to serve the information you care about most, such as your steps, sleep, and vitals.
