The Walking Steadiness iPhone Feature in iOS 15 Is Designed To Keep You Upright

The 15 Best New Features for Your iPhone in iOS 15

Among the new additions that Apple unveiled for iOS 15 at its Worldwide Developer Conference this week was the Walking Steadiness feature. It is aimed at giving iPhone users an insight into their risk of having a fall while walking. Apple calls the feature “an industry first” and it draws on data from sensors in its devices that is already used for other features.

Apple is introducing a new Walking Steadiness feature for the iPhone with iOS 15 that will track a user’s balance so they can be aware of any changes.

iPhone users have been able to track the number of steps they take each day using the Health app for years now. In addition, Fall Detection was added to the Apple Watch in 2018, using the device’s accelerometer and gyroscope to track wrist trajectory and impact acceleration, as well as algorithms to calculate whether a fall has likely been had. Walking Steadiness takes these two features further by tracking data over time to get a profile of how the user walks and to recognize when their walking profile changes.

Like Fall Detection on the Apple Watch, Walking Steadiness uses sensors in the iPhone to track the user’s mobility as they walk. Apple explains that “custom algorithms” to calculate walking speed, step length, double support time, and walking asymmetry. This, in turn, is used to assess the user’s overall balance, stability, and coordination
