Bug Delays Apple’s HealthKit, Several Health & Fitness Apps

apple-iphoneSorry guys, Apple picking season may be a bit delayed this year—gadget-wise, that is.

Apple Inc. said the release of its much-awaited HealthKit and fitness application platform will be delayed because of a bug.

The HealthKit was supposed to launch together with the iOS 8 operating system for iPhones and iPads, which came out September 17th. The HealthKit gathers fitness-related information from users, including blood pressure and weight through various health apps on Apple devices. These can then be used by doctors at one place.

“We’re working quickly to have the bug fixed in a software update and have HealthKit apps available by the end of the month,” a spokesperson for the tech giant said in an email sent to Reuters on Wednesday.

Apple has also pulled a few health-related apps from the App Store that pairs with HealthKit. This includes MyFitnessPal and Carrot Fit. WebMS Health Corp also pulled the new version of its app, which connected to HealthKit.
