Three of the lesser-known features available on iPhone 8 and later, there is Walking Stability, which is available with iOS 15 and later, and is useful for viewing stability, rating mode, and getting information about fall risks.
Apple explains that gait stability uses custom algorithms to assess a user’s balance, stability, and coordination via the phone’s built-in motion sensors. As they walk with their iPhone, the feature monitors important metrics related to commuting, such as walking speed, stride length, double stride time, and uneven walking. These metrics are used to determine the stability and rating of a user’s movement.
Belt stability is rated as ‘adequate’, ‘low’ or ‘very low’. You can also choose to be notified when stability is detected to be too low or too low.
With health data sharing enabled, the user can also choose to automatically share walking stability data and notifications with friends or family.
gait stability configuration
- On the iPhone, open the Health app
- Scroll down to find the Bios stability notifications section and select Configure
- Hit “Next” and follow the onscreen instructions (to confirm your details and activate any notifications).
While walking, we keep the iPhone in the front pocket or in the pocket near the waist. We will be notified if the stabilization level is low enough to pose a fall risk over the next year.
To view your walking stability history, simply open the Health app, tap Browse > Motion, and tap Stability Walking.
If we add the Walking Stability feature to the Favorites section during setup, we can access it from the Summary panel in the Health app.
