With iOS 15, it will now be possible to share health information between family members directly from the Health app.
This will be especially useful for keeping tabs on older family members, as you’ll also be able to share notifications of things like abnormal heart rates, and you can even start an iMessage conversation with the family member directly from there.
All the tracking, trends, and history features will also be available in the Health app for each shared family member, and users will be able to choose exactly what data points to share. Naturally, everything is still end-to-end encrypted in such a way that even Apple has no access to your family’s health data.
What’s not yet clear is whether this will also enable sharing of health information from family members who are using an Apple Watch with Family Setup.
