Apple is finally launching a cycle tracker this week, and there's a compelling reason to use it over third-party apps

9 monthes ago   |   By Business Insider

Apple will launch its native period-tracking app for the iPhone and Apple Watch this week.
The new "Cycle Tracking" app will allow users to track their periods, symptoms, and fertility windows without having to use a third-party app.
Apple added some period tracking features to HealthKit in 2015 after the company received backlash for not including the function initially when it launched health-tracking features in 2014.
A native period-tracking feature from Apple could be attractive to users who are nervous about the lax privacy protections offered in third-party apps.
