There will be no further Need For Third-Party Apps

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.
