The M8 chip in the iPhone is what records your step data, and it always does it. The Health app is just a portal to view data. If you want to see your step data, add the Step dashboard in the Health app. If you don't want to see it, don't add the Step dashboard.Hi guys I'm pretty confused about the step counting in the Health app. Does it count my step by default? And can I disable it?
It's based on the region you have set up in phone settings, so US shows miles. Kind of silly -- I feel like there should be a setting to change it to imperial or metric, but it doesn't look like one exists (yet).It must be possible. I've seen screenshots with it showing miles.
