Apple rolled out the much awaited iOS 8 update last night, and while there is a ton of new features for you to play around, the HealthKit isn’t one of them, Cult of Mac reports. A last minute bug caused the Cupertino-based company to remove all the fitness apps from the App Store that offered HealthKit support.

Among the apps that were pulled include MyFitnessPal, WebMD, and CARROT Fit and more. Apple informed the said companies right before the iOS 8 rollout and asked them to send their previous version- one that didn’t support HealthKit for review.

We’re working quickly to have the bug fixed in a software update and have HealthKit apps available by the end of the month.” Also Read - Apple starts sending alerts to users impacted by Pegasus spyware
