Take-charge of your health

The Apps that may be paired or accessed by the Healthkit app need to have a privacy policy in place. Hence, it allows software that provides such fitness related services to share their data with the new Health app and amongst each other. The entire health information is stored in a centralised and secure location. The user decides which data needs to be shared with their app. Apple is asking developers and technicians to connect their apps and its data to its hub, and they hope to resolve the problem in a span of two-weeks. The App is a unique feature and allows one to take care of their health and fitness better.
