How to Upload HealthKit Data in the background?

Forums > Swift

Hello, I'm working on a project for which I need to use HealthKit background delivery. I've spent a few weeks on it but I cannot get it to work. I need my app to be able to "listen" for changes to the users HealthKit, and any time there is a change it should upload the HealthKit data to a database (AWS Storage) in the background. I have looked at sample code, and the documentation but I am stuck. When data is added to HealthKit, the changes are only made when the user comes back to the app, and not in the background.

There is more information and even all the code in this stack overflow post:


I would greatly appreciate any help because the entire project is stuck.
