Apple Cauterizing HealthKit At Launch Shows How High The Stakes Are
Apple introduced HealthKit to developers at its WWDC event in June, along with a Health app which acts as a repository for viewing all the health and fitness data collated via HealthKit. The idea behind HealthKit is to make it easier for health and fitness data to flow between apps, with fine-grained user permissions built in, allowing the user to control and build up a more holistic — and therefore useful — overview of their personal wellness, using whatever combination of health and fitness iOS apps and devices they choose.But such was the serious nature of the last minute HealthKit bug that Apple locked the tool down entirely — so it’s effectively not in the current version of iOS 8. Cupertino also pulled apps with HealthKit integration off the App Store. This caused considerable headaches for developers who had lined up HealthKit integration to be there from the start of iOS 8.
