    During its WWDC keynote, Apple's Craig Federighi has talked briefly about an important update in iOS 9 which is aimed at female users. Apple’s SVP of Software Engineering Craig mentioned the forthcoming feature among a series of updates to Apple’s HealthKit platform.

    Along with the introduction of iOS 9, HealthKit will be updated to finally add menstrual cycles to its list of trackable data it can follow. The app will be able to record the duration and intensity of menstrual flow.

    According to fresh information coming from the HealthKit Developer Library, it seems that the app will also track body temperature and the consistency of cervical mucus, and will allow women log the results of commercial ovulation tests.

    Thus, in the new Reproductive Health section, focusing on women's health, specific data types that can be stored are as follows - basal body temperature, cervical mucus quality, menstruation, ovulation test result, sexual activity and spotting.
