Are you having trouble seeing steps on your iPhone? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

In this tutorial, we will walk you through the process of viewing steps on your iPhone using the built-in Health app. So let’s get started!

Step 1: Launching the Health App

If you haven’t done so already, locate and tap on the Health app icon on your iPhone’s home screen to launch it.

Step 2: Navigating to the Steps Section

Once you have successfully launched the Health app, navigate to the “Health Data” tab located at the bottom of your screen and tap on it. Next, scroll down until you find the “Activity” section and tap on it.

Troubleshooting Tip:

If you cannot find the “Activity” section, ensure that you have granted necessary permissions for Health app to access your activity data. To do this, go to Settings > Privacy > Health, and make sure all relevant categories are enabled.

Step 3: Viewing Your Steps

Congratulations! You have successfully reached the Activity section.

Now, look for the “Steps” category listed under “All Recorded Data”. Tap on it to view detailed information regarding your daily step count.

Troubleshooting Tip:

If no data is displayed in the Steps section or if it shows inaccurate information, double-check that your iPhone’s motion tracking capabilities are enabled. To do this, go to Settings > Privacy > Motion & Fitness, and make sure that both “Fitness Tracking” and “Health” are toggled on.

Step 4: Customizing Your Steps Dashboard

The Health app allows you to customize your Steps dashboard according to your preferences. To do this, tap on the “Show All Data” button located at the top-right corner of the screen. Here, you can add or remove various metrics and rearrange them as per your liking.

Troubleshooting Tip:

If you encounter any issues while customizing your Steps dashboard or have difficulties understanding certain metrics, refer to the Health app’s Help section. It provides detailed explanations of each data point and how it is calculated.

Step 5: Setting Goals and Monitoring Progress

If you want to set specific step goals or monitor your progress over time, the Health app offers a built-in feature for that. Simply tap on the “Today” tab at the bottom of your screen, then scroll down and locate the “Steps” section. Here, you can set daily step Targets and track your achievements.

  • To set a step goal:
    1. Tap on the “Change Goals” button located below the progress bar.
    2. Select a suitable step Target from the available options or manually enter a custom value.
    3. Tap on “Done” to save your changes.
  • To view your progress:
    1. Return to the Health Data tab and navigate to the Activity section again.
