Apple Delivers Quick HealthKit and HomeKit Updates at WWDC

Apple dedicated a substantial amount of stage time last year at its Worldwide Developers Conference to reveal its smart home and health platforms, but this year, if you sneezed during a certain portion of the keynote, you probably missed the updates. The company quickly breezed through updates related to HomeKit and HealthKit on Monday, but there are indeed a few upgrades underway for the platforms. Snuck in between news of Mac OS El Capitan, iOS 9 and Apple Music, Apple announced that HomeKit will soon be able to handle more products such as security systems and mechanical blinds. The news comes just a few days after the first batch of HomeKit-compatible gadgets were given launch dates — and two are available for purchase now.
