We’re just a few weeks away from Apple’s WWDC 2014, and the amount of rumors as to what to expect for iOS 8 are just going to get stronger. We’ve heard the company making significant improvements to services like Maps, but we’ve also heard that it’ll also create a new Health Book service, as a key feature to integrate with its future wearable. What we hadn’t heard yet is to what degree of depth Apple planned to invest on this new Health Book service, and new rumors point to it being big.

Reuters has apparently been interviewing some of the new execs that Apple has hired from the health-and-fitness sector, and even though there are no solid details of what Apple is planning, the company seems to be interested in creating a new hub that’s health-oriented. We’re not sure if this means we’ll have a separate section in the App Store for this, as this would be easy to do for Apple, but apparently the investment is in creating a new ecosystem that recommends internal and third-party services for both the iWatch and it’s other iOS products.

More information on what to expect should surface soon, but it does make sense for Apple to keep this as secret as possible due to the new growth in competition.
