How to Export and Import Health Data in iOS 9


It was iOS 8 when Apple introduced to the brand new app, which can help you to cancel your next doctor’s visit. This is called Health app, which collects all the information about your health either manually or by a third party app. This in-built application of Apple for iOS 8+ is truly awesome, which is in iOS 9 as well.

What is Health app in iOS 8+?

This is one of the best inclusions by Apple. You can collect various types of information like weight, heart rate, blood pressure, steps, sleep analysis, blood cholesterol, hormones, proteins and many more. Generally, we go to the doctor for routine checkup, which helps us to live without any illness. Doctors just do some tests, compare that with previous results and make sure whether you have any problem or not. However, the Health app of iOS 8+ does the same thing. Although, the workflow is quite different and obviously, it doesn’t do any major test, yet, you can get reports manually.

There are two ways to upload data to this Health app. You can enter data manually. Or, you can use various third party health related apps to collect the data for you. Apple’s Health app has some recommendations for you.

However, suppose, you have more than one iOS device and you can use the same Health data on both of the devices simultaneously. At such moment, you have only one option that will let you do so.
