The health app will initially pull data from third-party fitness and health-monitoring hardware, the person said, but it will most likely be able to connect with a smart watch that Apple is widely expected to release this year.
Apple is also expected to make an announcement about its efforts with connecting to so-called smart home devices, or home appliances that can be wirelessly controlled with a smartphone, like light bulbs, thermostats or door locks.
No big surprises here.
The smart home appliance that I'm most looking forward to is a smart lock. So far there's not much going on there, but I think it would be the most useful of the areas mentioned about. I have a Nest thermostat, and it's great. I actually wouldn't mind Nest getting into locks.
