Since the previous couple of days, we’ve been becoming aware of Apple’s expected iOS 8 Healthbook application undertakings, and today, a brand-new screenshot launched into the untamed using China’s Twitter-like solution Weibo supplies what seems a legitimate glimpse of the app running on iOS 8.

If current understanding is anything to go by, Apple has some considerable implementations and enhancements in the offing for iOS 8, and with health-related applications and products presently at the leading edge of the mobile market, it’s not unusual that the Cupertino is planning to sign up with the celebration.

Although, at this stage, it is unidentified as to whether the so-called ‘‘ iWatch’ will also manifest itself this year – – not to mention if or just how it will integrate with this powerful new fitness, health and nutrition and task tracker – – from what we have actually currently seen of Healthbook, it will certainly practically certainly be just one of the crucial center of attentions of iOS 8.

The mock-up of iOS 8 Healthbook app by 9to5Mac we saw a number of days back is extremely like just what has actually been dripped today by means of Weibo, borrowing many of its visual quirks from the Passbook application that Apple first threw away with iOS 6. The native ticket and coupon hub vowed considerably, yet yet, has actually provided valuable little in its pursuit to solution as our electronic purse, however while Passbook was perhaps a half-baked featurette that has been provided priceless little focus because its initial roll-out, Healthbook looks as though it will enter the opposite direction.

Taking another look at the topic of the iWatch for a short time, it is largely assumed that Apple will lastly bite at some point in 2014, although despite reports last year of the fruit firm having actually charged a 100-strong team with its advancement, we’ve viewed valuable little proof that a smartwatch is definitely on the schedule.

Definitely, with Google having simply announced the Android Put on SDK especially for wearable gadgets, very closely followed by the statement of the Moto 360 smartwatch from Motorola, holding back on the iWatch for one more year or additional would certainly seem counter-productive, to put it slightly.

Nevertheless, with Healthbook apparently boasting so much capability, a smartwatch would appear the perfect enhancement to every one of its numerous tracking and tracking attributes, and as we look forward to utilizing its card-like user interface for the perk of our wellbeing, permit’s wish it’s not the only health-related product Apple launches this year.
