On the Today page, scroll down to find the activity for which you want to edit your steps. Tap on it and then select “Edit” in the upper right corner of the screen.

You can now modify your steps goal or starting step count for that particular activity. After making your changes, tap “Save” in the upper right corner to save them.

What is the Health app?

The Health app is a built-in iOS app that records and stores health data from various sources, such as your iPhone, Apple Watch, and apps that you already use. You can also add data manually, such as by entering your weight or blood sugar level. The Health app organizes this data into various categories, such as Activity, Sleep, Nutrition, and more.

How to edit steps on the Health app

The Health app for iPhone and iPad makes it easy to track your steps, distance, and other activity metrics. But if you want to ensure that the data the app is recording is accurate, you can edit it manually. Here’s how!

Why edit steps on the Health app?

You may want to edit your steps for a number of reasons. Maybe you forgot to track your steps for a day, or maybe you want to adjust the number of steps you recorded for a particular activity. Regardless of your reasons, it’s easy to edit your steps on the Health app.

Here’s how:

1. Open the Health app on your iPhone.
2. Tap the “Summary” tab at the bottom of the screen.
3. Tap “Edit” in the top-right corner of the screen.
4. Tap the “+” or “-” buttons next to each activity to add or remove steps.
5. When you’re finished, tap “Done” in the top-right corner of the screen.

How to add steps on the Health app

The Health app is a great way to track your steps, but what if you want to add steps that you’ve already taken? Here’s how:

1. Open the Health app on your iPhone.
2. Tap the “Steps” tile.
3. Tap the “+” button in the top-right corner.
4. Enter the number of steps you took, then tap “Add.”
5. That’s it! Your added steps will appear in the “Steps” tile.

How to delete steps on the Health app

If you’re using an iPhone, there are a few ways to delete steps from the Health app. One way is to go to the Today tab, then tap on the desired day. Swipe left on the steps entry, then tap “Delete.” If you want to delete all of your step data for a particular day, go to the History tab, select the desired day, then scroll down and tap “Clear Data.”

Another way to delete steps from the Health app is to go to the Sources tab. Tap on the entry for your iPhone under “Active Sources.” Scroll down and tap “Edit,” then deselect the “Steps” option. This will stop your iPhone from tracking steps and will also delete any step data that has already been entered into the app.

It’s also worth noting that you can’t delete steps from Apple’s Health app if they were entered manually. The only way to remove these steps is to delete them one by one.

How to change step goals on the Health app

If you want to change your step goals on the Health app, you can do so by going to the “Goals” section of the app. To get there, first tap on the “Health Data” tab at the bottom of the screen. Then, scroll down and tap on “Steps.”

Once you’re in the “Steps” section, you’ll see your current step goal at the top of the screen. To change it, simply tap on the number. A new screen will come up where you can enter your new step goal.

Keep in mind that your step goal should be realistic, so that you’re more likely to stick to it. A good rule of thumb is to aim for 10,000 steps per day.

How to view your step history on the Health app

The Health app on your iPhone can show you your step history for the past week, month, or year. Here’s how to view your step history in the Health app:

1. Open the Health app.
2. Tap the Browse tab.
3. Scroll down and tap Steps.
4. Tap an icon to view your step history for that day, week, month, or year.

Other features of the Health app

In addition to tracking your steps, the Health app can track a variety of other health data points, including weight, body fat percentage, calories burned, and distance traveled. You can also add information about your water intake and the medications you’re taking. To edit any of this information, tap the category name (Weight, Activity, Heart, etc.) on the main Health screen, then tap the entry you want to change. From there, you can edit or delete the entry.

Conclusion

There are many ways to edit your steps on the Health app. You can do it manually, or you can use a third-party app to do it for you. If you want to be able to see your steps in real-time, then you should use an app that syncs with the Health app.
