How to Enable (or Disable) Motion & Fitness Tracking on iPhone

Published

The fitness tracking is done by using a low-power motion coprocessor that determines steps, altitude gain and lost, and distance travelled. Many users like this feature because it represents an easy way to keep an eye on their activity levels, and perhaps work towards that goal of being active for at least 10,000 steps per day.

The fitness tracking feature in iOS is activated by default, which makes it possible for the iPhone to function in a manner similar to a pedometer. However, if you wish to disable the motion detection feature on your iPhone for any reason, you are able to do so.
