The Health app.
With a healthy
dose of updates.

The Health app was created to help organize your important health information and make it easy to access in a central and secure place. With the release of iOS 15, we’re adding features to empower you even more. There are new ways to share data with your loved ones, a metric to assess your walking steadiness and risk of falling, and trend analysis to help you understand changes in your health.

Health puts your important information at your fingertips, including your activity, sleep, and more.

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

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

Caring is sharing.

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

Share with the people closest to you.

Whether it’s with a family member or a caregiver, health sharing lets you share any information stored in the Health app. So it’s easy for them to see things like mobility, activity data, and trends.

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.

You’re in charge of you.

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

A change in the way
you see your health.

The more informed you are about your health, the more empowered you are to take action. The Health app helps you make sense of your health data. So you can see everything from how active you are to how much sleep you’re getting, and do what’s best for you.

A great view of you.

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

Managing your sleep is a dream.

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

Measure your sleeping respiratory rate.

With an Apple Watch, you can track metrics from your sleep like blood oxygen levels, heart rate, time asleep, and now sleeping respiratory rate.1

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.

Big steps in mobility.

The sensors in your Apple Watch and iPhone capture data that reveals mobility metrics like walking asymmetry to give you a better overall view of your health.

New Walking Steadiness metric.

Walking Steadiness is a metric that assesses your balance, strength, and gait. Now you can get notifications 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 fertility window will begin.2

Designed for privacy
and security.

As we introduce and expand ways to share your health data, privacy continues to be at the core. All of our health features are built to keep your data secure and protect your privacy. Your health data stays on your device and is encrypted — both in transit and at rest — when your device is locked with your passcode. And you are always in control.

Your health data is safe.

The Health app lets you keep all your health information securely in one place on your device.

You are in control.

You decide which information is in the Health app, which apps can access your data, and who you share your data with.
