Australian Company Claims Apple Stole The Healthkit Name

Jun 7 2014, 1:15am CDT | by

The Healthkit name belongs to a startup that wants Apple to stop using it

Healthkit is going to be a very promising addition to iOS 8, but there is one company that isn’t pleased with it. That is Australian based Healthkit, a startup that registered their name two year ago and says they had no idea about the name of the App until the conference that announced it.

The company posted a video to Twitter where they discussed the announcement, saying they are very disappointed in Apple. They were “shocked when we got up in the morning and discovered Apple executives standing on stage, with an icon behind them with our name on it.” According to them, Apple could have spent five seconds searching for the name and finding out what they have had a website with the name for years now.

They are now going to fight Apple for the rights to the name, although companies haven’t had much success in doing this in the past. There are several occasions in which existing companies have claimed Apple stole their name or ideas. How far this case will make it remains to be seen and it could be a while before anyone knows anything about what Apple’s plan is for dealing with it.

Keep an eye out for this, but it isn’t normal to see Apple give up on something to easily. In any case, it is going to be something exciting for Apple fans, especially with the iWatch coming out later on in the year.
