Looking for a way to monitor your blood glucose levels? If so, you better get your hands on an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, as leaked screenshots reveal that the upcoming iOS 8.2 update will bring blood glucose level monitoring to the Apple Health app.
The screenshots you see above were leaked by 9to5Mac. According to the site, blood glucose tracking was previously cut from the Apple Health app, but will be re-added in iOS 8.2 alongside a number of enhancements.
Back to blood glucose monitoring, the new feature will allow you to choose the measurement unit, including mg/dL or mmol/L. Additionally, there will be new descriptions, which better describe features on the Health app. Here’s an example: “Glucose–also called blood sugar–is the main sugar found in the blood and the main source of energy for your body.” That’s the new description of “Glucose,” which is more detailed than what we’ve previously seen.
The iOS 8.2 update also allows the Apple Watch to work together with the iPhone. So when do we get to see the Cupertino firm’s first wearable? It is scheduled to launch in the first quarter of next year.
Looking forward to iOS 8.2? Phones LTD will let you know once the update goes live in the UK.
