Record Steps with MyFitnessPal on iPhone 6
Freya, Crystal, Jen M, Eng
Hi, you're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to record your steps on the MyFitnessPal application on the iPhone 6.
To begin, unlock the phone by pressing the lock button on the right-hand side of the phone.
Alternatively, press the big round button at the bottom of the phone called the home button.
Once the lock screen is up, simply swipe right to unlock the phone.
Enter the passcode or press your finger on the home button, which doubles as a fingerprint scanner, if you have that option enabled.
Look for the "MyFitnessPal" app, which, in this case, is in the "Useful" folder.
It is a blue icon with a white silhouette of someone jumping, and in the left-hand corner there is a grey tab with a little dumbbell symbol. Tap it once to open the application.
It will automatically open to the homepage where we can see our daily calorie count, the option to connect, some status updates and blog posts.
In the bottom grey bar, tap the last option, "More", with 3 dots.
This will open up the menu.
Find and tap on "Steps" which has a picture of 2 footsteps on the left-hand side.
This will open up the options.
Here we can choose how to record our steps.
At the moment, there is a blue tick on the right-hand side of "iPhone", so our steps are being tracked by the phone. If we're using something else, for example, the Apple iWatch, tap on "Add a device".
After tapping "Add a device", we can scroll through and select exactly what we're using.
There are also some specific sports devices as well. When we're done, we can tap the back arrow in the top left corner.
If we don't want the steps to be tracked, we can tap "Don't track steps" and the blue check mark will be to the right of it indicating that it is selected.
We can change the "Daily Step Goal" by tapping on it.
For the iPhone, it says that it uses the built-in motion sensor.
It was set to 10000, so we'll set it to 9000, then tap on the white check mark.
Tap on the back arrow in the top left corner to go back.
Tap the home icon in the bottom left corner to return to the home page.
Now, under calories, it shows a very small bar that shows the amount of steps we've taken, and our daily goal.
The more we walk, the more the orange bar fills up.
This concludes the tutorial on how to record steps on the MyFitnessPal application on the iPhone 6.
