iOS 8 will Support Some Wearables Out Of The Box

We all already aware of the fact that the HealthKit is going to be one of the greatest highlights and components of the iOS 8 and to make customer experience even better, it is going to come with a couple of other third party accessories. HealthKit will allow you to connect with these said accessories through Bluetooth and the add-ons will not need to build and publish companion apps. For a more streamlines functionality, users will also not have to download any kind of supporting apps for products that can integrate right into HealthKit.

By eliminating the hassle, Apple is promoting the HealthKit as well as the accompanying Health app that will part of iOS 8 in a far better way. Such a development is going to allow Apple to focus more on the perfection of the hardware as opposed to constantly worrying about refinements pertaining to the accompanying iOS app. Thanks to a report by 9to5Mac, we were able to make this discovery. Their report offers details of the kinds of accessories supported by this automatic, native compatibility including the heart rate / blood pressure monitors, as well as glucose sensors and health thermometers.

Though the HealthKit is going to be the central hub of the iOS 8, it clearly does not imply that there is not going to be an interesting category of health-based apps in iTunes. If you have favorite apps which already exist, HealthKit can also work in harmony with those.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
