Shortly after the introduction of the iOS 8, Apple has pulled out all apps that run on the HealthKit platform from the App Store, CNET reported.

The company explained that the move was due to a bug that affects the HealthKit's program.

The HealthKit was supposed to be one of the main features of Apple's latest operating system. However, the Cupertino-based company discovered that a glitch in the system prevents the HealthKit from running on the iOS 8.

As a result, the company decided to remove all apps that utilize the program from its store, according to ZDNET.

"We discovered a bug that prevents us from making HealthKit apps available on iOS 8 today," Apple spokesperson Trudy Muller explained. "We're working quickly to have the bug fixed in software update and have the HealthKit apps available by the end of the month."

One of the developers affected by Apple's announcement is Strava, the maker of the popular cycling and running app of the same name.

"Unfortunately we were unable to make the newest version of Strava's app available in the App Store today due to issues beyond our control," a spokesperson from the company said.

"We hope to have it available in the App Store as soon as possible," the representative added.

First unveiled in June, the HealthKit offers app developers a platform to create programs to keep track of people's health and fitness information.

As part of Apple's plan to capitalize on the features of the HealthKit, the company has entered negotiations with members of the healthcare industry.

In addition, the company is in talks with health insurers such as Humana and United Health regarding the use of the program on clients, Reuters reported.

Apple's potential partnership with healthcare institutions will enable medical professionals and insurers to use the data collected by the HealthKit to assess the condition of their patients and clients.
