Re flights climbed in the Health app, I have an iPhone 7 Plus and it has recorded a total of just 2 flights in the past month, which is odd since I have 2 flights of stairs just within my house and always carry my phone. In previous months it shows an average of about 1 per day, which is very inaccurate. It has never really worked well on other models, either, but the 7/7+ is supposed to have a special opening for the barometer where the headphone jack used to be. I always shrugged it off before, but I just got out of the hospital a month ago and need to keep track of my activity.
