HealthKit Data Banned from iCloud

In less than a week, Apple is expected to unveil its hotly-anticipated wearable device. But, especially given the recent celebrity hacking scandal, more are questioning whether Apple can secure sensitive healthcare data. This morning, news spread that Apple would reject any HealthKit apps that store health information in iCloud. As curious as we are to see what Apple has in store for our wrists, we’re also eager for innovations that improve data security in the cloud.
