Pedometer in background

#1

Hello,

I am trying to figure out if pedometer works in the background or not? If I m trying to use it for a running app. wouldn’t it make sense that steps are recorded in the background? Is this functionality there?

On iOS at least, I believe there is a dedicated coprocessor for motion detection for the step counter, which runs in a very low power mode and doesn’t require your app to be running, let alone foregrounded. When your app asks for a step count, it gets the device’s previously recorded step count.
