Gurman also said that the Health app “probably won't be expanding to the iPad and Mac,” but it will get “plenty of new features that work with the iPhone [on iOS 16 and Apple Watch.” iOS 16 is also said to bring support for Always On Display. However, this feature can most likely be available only on iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max, which are expected to launch in the month of September-October.
