As predicted, the leaks are starting to flow concerning new Apple devices and apps. Last week we learned that the iPhone 6 will definitely have a larger screen and we’re to expect more and more leaks about the new iPhone, because it is going into production soon. Some sneaky factory worker will surely manage to snap a few photos of the screen or some bits and pieces and then the internet will explode. This week we’re going to take a look at Apple’s Healthbook App – an app designed with one thing in mind: help you get and stay healthy.
Apple’s Healthbook App Leaked
This is one massive leak that seems to give us a sneak peak at Apple’s one of the most eagerly awaited launches.
If we were to believe that the leak is real, then it seems that Apple want to track our hydration levels, blood work and also sleep cycles and exercises. There are already a plethora of apps available of iOS that do that, but it seems that Apple want to get a piece of the pie themselves, probably to rival the all those smartwatches out there that seem to be quite health and fitness oriented.
Basically, Apple’s Healthbook app will be a comprehensive repository of all your health and body data: heart rate, blood pressure, nutrition, respiratory rate, weight and much more. Then what Healthbook does with it, remains to be seen. How is the app going to get that information, you ask? Well, there are two possible ways and we think that Apple’s Healthbook app is going to combine the two. Firstly, the app is going to make use of the iPhone 6’s or iWatch sensors and secondly, you’re going to have to do quite a bit of filling in your personal data that you get from your doctor. Which is OK, we’re not expecting a simple app to analyze us by being next to us… yet! Tim Cook is threating us with some awesome sensors, but we are going to have to wait and see what that’s all about.
Apple’s Healthbook App will most likely be launched at the Apple WWDC 2014, which Apple announced yesterday that it will take place on June 2 in San Francisco. At the June conference, Apple is expected to launch the new iOS 8 and even a new MacBook Air with Retina display. Remember, everything is just speculation, so don’t get your hopes up.
