Can I delete iPhone Health app?
All replies. Hello. You cannot delete the Health and Wallet apps from iOS. If you do not want to see these apps on your iPod's home screen, you can remove them so that they only show in your App Library.
You just need to tap your profile picture or icon in the Health App, scroll to the Privacy section and select the Export All Health Data option and follow the prompts. After that, you can tap Devices, select the device you wish to delete data from and then select Delete all Data and confirm Delete again.
The Health app gathers health data from your iPhone, Apple Watch, and apps that you already use, so you can view all your progress in one convenient place. Health automatically counts your steps, walking, and running distances. And, if you have an Apple Watch, it automatically tracks your Activity data.
- Open the Health app and tap the Browse tab.
- Tap a category, such as Activity.
- Tap a subcategory, such as Steps.
- Tap Show All Data, then tap Edit in the top right-hand corner.
- Tap the Delete button next to the record you want to delete. You can also tap Delete All to delete every record.
- Open the "settings" (it looks like a gear) on your iPhone.
- In settings, select the "Apple Health" app on your iPhone (It has a white icon with a red heart)
- Choose "Data Access & Devices"
- Select SleepWatch.
- Turn OFF all the available switches.
Open Spotlight on your iOS 15 iPhone, and type for the app name you want to delete. When it shows, press and hold on the app's icon. Choose Delete App. Now tap the Delete to confirm.
You can stop receiving health records at any time by removing your account. To do so, open the Health app, tap Health Records, select the account you want to remove, then tap Remove Account.
Any Health app data you choose to share will be encrypted and stored by Apple on a dedicated server so that Apple can securely share this data with the healthcare organization you chose. Your data is sent from your iOS device only when it is unlocked and connected to the internet.
Steps registered by the iPhone Health App agree very closely to those measured manually with an averaged error of about 2%. The reliability of the registered distances, however, depends on a number of factors, including walking speed and walking style of the subject and can deviate up to 30–40% from the true value.
To access the information: Go to the "Settings" > Privacy > Location Services > System Services > Frequent Locations. You will find some of the frequent locations you have visited if it's already been turned ON.
Why can't I uninstall apps on my iPhone?
If you can't delete an app that's not made by Apple, disable parental controls, then try deleting the app again. If you touch and hold an app from the Home Screen and the apps start to jiggle: Tap the Remove icon in the upper-left corner of the app. Tap Delete App, then tap Delete to confirm.
In the latest version of the system (iOS 8.4), open the Settings icon on the iPhone's Home screen. On the Settings screen, scroll down and tap Privacy. Look for Motion & Fitness down the list of Privacy controls and select it, and then tap the button next to Fitness Tracking to turn it off.
These updates can only be cleared by deleting the individual app's Documents & Data. However, the Documents & Data cannot be directly deleted on iPhone. You will have to delete the individual apps and then search and reinstall the older version of the particular app from iOS app download centers.
See your sleep metrics.
Apple Watch tracks sleep metrics like blood oxygen levels, heart rate, time asleep, and sleeping respiratory rate. iOS 16 lets you see your heart rate and sleeping respiratory rate alongside your time asleep with comparison charts in the Health app.
Apple says the data is in the user's control
Apple says the data is safe, and if users want to avoid third-party apps, data can be recorded manually into the Health app.
Historic Health and Activity data is stored on your iPhone and can be accessed via the companion Activity app and the Health app. There is no time limit on the period for which Health and Activity data (including workouts) is saved.
If you sign in with your Apple ID, your health and fitness information in the Health app is stored automatically in iCloud. Your information is encrypted as it goes between iCloud and your device and while it's stored in iCloud.
|Age||Steps Per Day: Minimum||Steps Per Day: Active|
|6-11 years old (male)||6,000 steps||13,000 steps|
|12-19 years old||6,000 steps||10,000 steps|
|20-65 years old||3,000 steps||7,000 steps|
|65+ years old||3,000 steps||7,000 steps|
For more health benefits, the CDC recommends upping that goal to 300 minutes. This equals about 30,000 steps per week (just under 5,000 steps per day).
If you shake your phone, the built-in motion sensor hardware in your phone might recognize this movement as walking. Pacer, and other movement tracking apps, uses this sensor to count steps. This is not a bug.
Can you see if someone checks your location on iPhone?
No. Android and iPhone's iOS do not notify or give an indication when someone checks your location. There is a brief icon displayed in the notification bar when GPS is used by location services. Any number of apps or system processes trigger a location check.
For most people a mile is between 2000 and 2100 steps. (Average step length is 31 inches; 1 mile = 5280 feet or 63,360 inches; dividing this by 31 inches gives 2044 steps.)
- Open the Find My app and select the People tab.
- Select the person you shared your location with.
- Scroll down and choose Ask To Follow Location, then select OK.
When you know which entry or entries you want to delete, tap Edit. Swipe left on the entries and tap Delete to erase those steps from your step count. Tap Done. Now when you open the Today tab on the Health app, you'll see the step count has been corrected.
