What Data is Stored in the Health App?

When you open the Health app, you’ll see four categories of data: Activity, Sleep, Mindfulness, and Nutrition. Below these categories, you’ll see a list of data types that are tracked by the Health app. To view more detailed information about a specific data type, tap on it.

The Health app uses your iPhone’s built-in sensors to track your movement and activity throughout the day. It also accesses data from any fitness apps or devices that you’ve connected to your iPhone, such as a Fitbit or Apple Watch. All of this data is stored in the Activity section of the app.

If you use any apps or products that track your sleep, such as the Beddit Sleep Monitor or the Withings Aura Smart Sleep System, that data will be stored in the Sleep section of the Health app. You can also manually enter sleep data into the app.

The Mindfulness section of the Health app contains data from any mindfulness apps that you’ve connected to your iPhone, such as Headspace or Calm.com. This section also includes any manual entries that you’ve made about your mindfulness practice.

Finally, the Nutrition section contains data from any nutrition apps or devices that you’ve connected to your iPhone, such as MyFitnessPal or The Daily Plate. This section also includes any manual entries that you’ve made about your diet and nutrition.

How to Keep Your Data Private

The Health app is a great way to keep track of your fitness and overall health, but it can also be a privacy nightmare. If you’re not careful, the Health app can collect a lot of sensitive data about your health and activity levels, which you may not want to share with everyone.

Fortunately, it’s relatively easy to delete the Health app from your iPhone 6. Here’s how:

1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone 6.

2. Tap on Privacy > Health.

3. Turn off the switches for all of the data types that you don’t want to share.

4. Tap on the Health app icon on your home screen, then tap and hold on the app icon until it starts jiggling.

5. Tap on the “x” icon to delete the app.
