Your health data.
In your control.

The Health app was created to help organize your important health information and make it easy to access in a central and secure place. iOS 16 allows you to manage, understand, and track your medications, invite loved ones to Health Sharing, and see your sleep stages.

Health puts important information at your fingertips, including your health records, medications, labs, activity, and sleep. And makes it simple to securely share that information.

It collects health and fitness data from your iPhone, the built-in sensors on your Apple Watch, compatible third-party devices, and apps that use HealthKit.

The Health app is built to keep your data secure and protect your privacy. Your data is encrypted and you are always in control of your health information.

A change in the way
you see your health.

The more informed you are, the more empowered you are to take action. That’s why the Health app helps you make sense of your data. So you can view your activity, manage your medications, better understand your sleep, and work with your healthcare providers to make the choices that are best for you.

A great view of you.

Highlights uses on-device machine learning to serve up what matters most to you, like your steps, sleep, or vitals.

More apps. More information.

The Health app can incorporate data from tens of thousands of third-party apps that are designed to promote healthier habits — everything from nutrition to meditation to fitness.

Medications made easier.

Get information about your medications and receive alerts of critical drug interactions.1 All you have to do is point your camera at a medication’s label to add it to the Health app or start typing the medication to see suggestions.2

Forget about forgetting.

Be reminded to log medications, vitamins, and supplements on your iPhone or on your wrist with Apple Watch. And securely share your medication information with loved ones.

Managing your sleep is a dream.

Prioritize your sleep by managing your sleep schedule, creating a bedtime routine, and seeing how often you’re meeting your sleep goals.

See your sleep metrics.

Apple Watch tracks sleep metrics like blood oxygen levels, heart rate, time asleep, and sleeping respiratory rate.3 iOS 16 lets you see your heart rate and sleeping respiratory rate alongside your time asleep with comparison charts in the Health app.

Get insights into sleep stages.

Using the sensors in Apple Watch, you can get deeper insights into how much time you spend in three sleep stages: REM, Core, and Deep.

Big steps in mobility.

Apple Watch and iPhone give insights into your mobility metrics. You can even get alerts if your walking steadiness is low or very low and you’re at an increased risk of falling.

Stay in sync with your cycle.

Cycle Tracking lets you log your period, record symptoms like cramps, and track cycle factors like lactation. It can also help predict when your next period or fertile window will begin. And you can receive a notification if your logged cycle history shows a possible cycle deviation, like irregular or infrequent periods.4

AFib History.

If you’ve been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, AFib History on Apple Watch can estimate how frequently your heart is in AFib. And in the Health app you can track lifestyle factors that may influence your condition.5

Caring is sharing.

Having a second set of eyes on your health data can give you peace of mind. With enhanced sharing features, the Health app lets you do just that by offering powerful ways to stay connected to your loved ones and provide useful information to healthcare providers.

Share with the people closest to you.

Health lets you share any information stored in the app. With iOS 16, you can invite your loved ones to share their information with you.

You’re in charge of you.

When you share your information, you have complete control over what you share and the people and institutions you share with. And you can make changes at any time.

Knowledge is healthy.

You can receive important notifications about your loved ones’ health and view things like their activity, mobility data, heart rate data, and trends in the Sharing tab.

Make the most of your time with doctors.

To help you have more meaningful discussions with your healthcare team, you can share health information including activity data, heart data, cycle tracking data, heart health notifications, and falls detected.

More to share.

Share your medications, blood glucose, Walking Steadiness, cardio fitness, and other mobility metrics with providers. And to facilitate physician discussions, you can create a PDF of your available health records.

Works with systems doctors already use.

Using their records system, your healthcare team can already review data you share. Updated views will let providers see data for topics such as blood glucose and mobility, all in one place.

Be the leading
expert on you.

Your body is a complex system. The Health app helps make understanding it a bit simpler. With it you can organize and access a vast array of health records, including allergies, labs, and immunizations — and sort through it all with ease.

To help you understand and manage your lab results, you can receive highlights, get context for results, and pin labs that matter most to you.
