Apple Introduces Health App Suite

The wait is over: Apple announced a new app suite called Healthkit, which is part dev kit and part Health app that syncs multiple fitness trackers, heath data, and medical information into an easily accessible hub. At the same time, it leverages the accelerometer on the iPhone to trace different datapoints about individual wellbeing. It also could very readily pave the way for Apple’s own piece of wearable tech, which is rumored to contain even more sensors to monitor personal health.
