Apple developers congress is just around the corner, it is likely Apple will announce iOS8. Until the new OS arrive
people closer to Apple will continue to leak information relating to iOS8.
As detailed in the images throughout this article, which are complete recreations of screenshots,
Healthbook’s user interface is largely inspired by the iPhone’s existing Passbook application.
Versions of Healthbook in testing are capable of tracking several different health and fitness data points.
Each category of functionality is a card in the Healthbook. Cards are distinguished by a color, and the tabs can
be arranged to fit user preferences. As can be seen in the above images, Healthbook has sections that can track
data pertaining to bloodwork, heart rate, hydration, blood pressure, physical activity, nutrition, blood sugar,
sleep, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, and weight.
While other publications have reported to the contrary, the images clearly show that Apple is working on tracking
hydration levels. Also contradicting other reporting, these images do not indicate that Apple is working on tracking
stress or pregnancy data points. It is possible that this type of functionality could arrive in the future,
but I do not believe Apple is currently developing those capabilities. A company with very good innovative culture
will not relax for competitors like Samsung to take over , but will continue to push his innovations to the masses.
