In an upcoming update, popular augmented reality game Pokémon Go will gain support for the Apple Health app, developer Niantic announced today.
Adventure Sync, a new feature, will use walking distances pulled from Apple Health to let you earn candy and hatch eggs even when the Pokémon Go app isn't running.
Niantic says Adventure Sync will also provide Pokémon Go users with a weekly summary on incubator and candy progress right alongside activity statistics.
Through the trainer profile, Pokémon Go users will be able to see the number of kilometers walked each week, and rewards will be available for each milestones that's reached.
Adventure Sync is "coming soon" and alongside Apple Health on iPhones, it will work with Google Fit on Android devices.
Pokémon Go can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]
