A query for read activity summary objects from the HealthKit store.


@interface HKActivitySummaryQuery : HKQuery


Activity summary query objects are mostly immutable. You can assign the query’s updateHandler property after instantiating the object. All other properties must be set when you instantiate the object, and they cannot change.

Executing Activity Summary Queries

The sample code, shown below, builds and executes a query that returns the activity summaries for the previous week.

// Create the date components for the predicate
NSCalendar *calendar = [NSCalendar calendarWithIdentifier:NSCalendarIdentifierGregorian];
NSDate *endDate = [NSDate date];
NSDate *startDate = [calendar dateByAddingUnit:NSCalendarUnitDay value:-7 toDate:endDate options:0];
NSCalendarUnit unit = NSCalendarUnitDay | NSCalendarUnitMonth | NSCalendarUnitYear | NSCalendarUnitEra;
NSDateComponents *startDateComponents = [calendar components:unit fromDate:startDate];
startDateComponents.calendar = calendar;
NSDateComponents *endDateComponents = [calendar components:unit fromDate:endDate];
endDateComponents.calendar = calendar;
// Create the predicate for the query
NSPredicate *summariesWithinRange =
[HKQuery predicateForActivitySummariesBetweenStartDateComponents:startDateComponents endDateComponents:endDateComponents];
// Build the query
HKActivitySummaryQuery *query = [[HKActivitySummaryQuery alloc] initWithPredicate:summariesWithinRange resultsHandler:^(HKActivitySummaryQuery * _Nonnull query, NSArray<HKActivitySummary *> * _Nullable activitySummaries, NSError * _Nullable error) {
    if (activitySummaries == nil) {
        // Handle the error here...
    // Do something with the summaries here...
// Run the query
[ executeQuery:query];

This code performs the following steps:

  1. Creates the date component objects representing the start and end days, as perceived by the user.

  2. Creates a predicate object using the date components.

  3. Creates the query object using the predicate.

  4. Executes the query.
