Apple is always in the news for several different reasons almost everyday. While these reasons can either emerge from the likes of a new iPhone model or a new iteration of iOS to run on that iPhone model, it seems like there's a brand new leak that has again pushed the company up as one of the top searched manufacturers on the Internet.
As reports are suggesting, Apple is rumored to introduce a certain Healthbook feature that will look to transform the iPhone into a personal doctor that will then be programmed to track and record details of a user's physical activities, apart from all other aspects related to health.

According to a number of screenshots leaked by 9To5Mac, Apple is looking to significantly expand on the way smartphones track and record data on a user's health and fitness with a Healthbook app that will come with all new iPhones set to arrive in the upcoming future.
"Healthbook's user interface is largely inspired by the iPhone's existing Passbook application. Versions of Healthbook in testing are capable of tracking several different health and fitness data points," 9To5Mac writes in its report.
The report also sheds light on how each category of functionality will essentially come as a card in the Healthbook. And these cards will be distinguished by their respective colors, with tabs present that can be arranged to fit user preferences.
"Healthbook has sections that can track data pertaining to bloodwork, heart rate, hydration, blood pressure, physical activity, nutrition, blood sugar, sleep, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, and weight," the report further states.
"Three of Healthbook's tabs are dedicated to fitness tracking: Activity, Weight, and Nutrition. Activity, which is pictured above, is similar to many other pieces of fitness tracking software on the App Store and other platforms. It tracks steps taken, calories burned, and miles walked," it adds.
As of now, a number of companies, including Google, are also interested in creating solutions that will help users track his or her physical activity.
